6. Patience

Arwen catches herself pacing and laughs. One would think that she has enough
experience of Aragorn's absence to bear it more easily, yet after forty years
of betrothal and twenty of marriage, she is still this impatient for his return.

He will tell her how the campaign went as soon as they have time to sit down in
private, but at least she already knows that he is unhurt – which is not always
so. She sighs and turns her mind to practical concerns; the returning army will
need to be housed for a few days before the men return home.

Written for RS's birthday 2012. Her request: "something with Aragorn after the
war during his military campaign against the "bad guys" while rebuilding his
kingdom. I would like to see Arwen involved also."
