Arwen stopped abruptly as two horses pounded into the yard, and the riders dropped lightly to the ground.

“Arwen!”  one called.

“We are sorry we so nearly missed your begetting day –”  began the other.

“But Elrohir’s horse went lame …”

“And then Elladan nearly got us lost!”  They exchanged glances of fond exasperation.

She tried hard to look disapproving as her brothers, looking dishevelled as always when they returned from a patrol, advanced on her.  They both hugged her, smearing her with mud, and she broke into a reluctant smile.

“Happy begetting day, little sister!”  they declared as one.
