13. In Dreams
Aragorn woke with a start and gazed around the campsite with wary eyes. All was quiet.
The dream had come again, shocking the ranger with its intensity.
Fragments of his earliest memories mingling with glimpses into the past.
And it stung, for it was so personal and emotionally stirring that he was very near crying. Choking back a sob he laid back down, thinking about the man he was getting to know through his dreams.
"Father," he told the stars "where are you now?"
The wind picked up and Aragorn thought to hear it whispering "I am here, watching over you."
