13. Fear and Hope
"Did your father speak with you?" he asked.
"Yes," she replied. "When we marry you will be King."
"It is better than we hoped," he said, taking her hands. "I feared he would not let you go."
"He would if I wished it." She knew if she pleaded with him she would be able to marry Aragorn sooner, but that she would not do, for he only wished to ensure it was truly what she wanted. "I fear," she continued, "that you will go and I will never see you again."
"Not when I have you to come back to."
