10. The Price to Pay
The Dark Lord was overthrown. Aragorn was now King and free to make her his bride.
Arwen felt overwhelmed with conflicting emotions. She loved Aragorn. He was her sun, her moon, her guiding star. Throughout the long ages of her life no other had stirred her heart like he did.
But to marry him meant she must leave her father and grandmother behind and never again embrace her mother, nor would she ever set foot in the Blessed Realm.
Arwen blinked away the tears and resolutely prepared for her new life. Aragorn had made great sacrifices and so would she.
