Summary: In the midst of a heat wave, Aragorn remembers the past. 


Much as Aragorn loved Gondor, the balmier climes of the South often oppressed him. 

In the North it was rarely as hot as this. He recalled fondly those rare days when it was warm enough to swim in the river, icily refreshing even at the height of summer.

 A king, though, could hardly doff his royal robes and plunge into the Anduin as the fancy took him.

 Now though, he had servants to fan his brow, bring him cool bathing water, and exotic juices to quench his thirst.

 Yet sometimes Aragorn yearned still to splash gleefully in the Bruinen’s chill waters.
