Arwen opened her eyes and gasped in wonder. Elanor and niphredil grew in abundance amongst lush grass. A clear stream trickled past beneath the shade of verdant limes. Rosebushes hedged the secluded garden, red and white blossoms releasing heady scents.
Arwen joyfully embraced her husband. Here she could feel at home within the bleak stones of Minas Tirith.
