Arathorn and Ilenal exchanged looks that passed on hatred from their past together. "Oh, believe me 'Lord' Arathorn, that I did not want to come here, but Gandalf said it was something of importance to meet you before you left Rivendell" he said before glancing at Tanos and then back at Arathorn. "Just to make clear, I don't have any business with the dunedain anymore and for my part, no unsetled business either. I hope you donot have any unsettled business with me either" he said before taking a sagger from a pouch hanging of his belt and threw it onto the ground between them. "The dagger of Ardalog. which you blamed me of losing. I found it from a merchant in Osgiliath"
"Our posturings, our imagined self-importance,
the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe,
are challenged by this point of pale light.
Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.
In our obscurity – in all this vastness – there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves."
- Carl Sagan
