Bird Challenge. Swan. Forewarned....

It is quite while since I wrote Éomer's Guide to Contemporary Bardic Works which covers the first two minutes or so of Éomer King's courtship of his future wife. This is set during the same evening.

Title: Forewarned....
Challenge; Swan

Characters: Éomer, Lothiriel, Erchirion

Éomer always believed in gathering as much intelligence as you could before making a move. This is why he ‘just happened’ to overhear the conversation, between Lothíriel and her brother, from his observation post behind a pillar.

“If one more man tries to compliment me by comparing me with a Dol Amroth swan I swear that I will beat my wings and hiss!”

A little later, knowing she was within earshot, he told the same brother that Lothíriel was much prettier than Erchirion had led him to believe - in fact she was almost as pretty as his favourite filly.
