2. Light of the Evenstar (Aragorn)

She had not come; he had known she would not. They had said all there was to say.
Rising, the Company made to depart in the darkness. Then did he see her, a slender figure in the shadows with the light of Eärendil shining down upon her.
The vision of her sustained him.
