The crying tore at the hearts of the elves of Rivendell. Many tears had been spilt by both mother and son since they had arrived in the dead of night two days ago. Aragorn was too young to understand what was happing, but being Númenorean and sharing a close bond with his father, even this little mind registered this loss.
And now he is about to loose the last link to his old identity. Elrond thought sadly. He had long discussed it with Gilraen and in the end convinced her that it was for the best. It would be hard for her to call him by another name, but once they had settled…
And from this day Aragorn vanished from the face of the earth and Estel of Rivendell was born.
