Beyond Compare

When Aragorn was an infant, the fairest sight on Arda was his mother's smile; when he was a boy; his greatest treasure was his favourite pony; as a young man; Arwen's beautiful eyes.

Later, the plains of Rohan had seemed fair; but lovelier still was the White City he hoped to rule. In time, such wonders paled, and nothing then seemed fairer than Imladris with his loved ones' smiles welcoming him home.

Aragorn had seen many wonders, but this sight was the greatest of all. His infant son's milk smeared face was beyond doubt the greatest treasure that Arda held.

A/N. Written for the "Milk" challenge on "Tolkien Weekly. This concludes this series of drabbles. I hope to publish more soon as well as longer stories. Thank you for all your much appreciated reviews.
