5. A Stitch in Time - stitch
Arwen grimaced at the worn green cloak. "Why do you keep this?" she asked.
Aragorn took it from her, a faraway look in his eyes. "Every stitch is full of memories," he replied, "My mother patched it here. Behold her neat stitches! See the rent there, mended in coarse thread? Halbarad stitched both cloth and flesh after an encounter with an Orc blade. The neat darn near the hem; a tear mended by a kindly woman in Bree. Now I am required to dress in velvet and silk, this old cloak reminds me of the man the King once was.
