A Stalwart Friend
"Why so eager to flee the city, lady?" he asked as he followed the dog and girl.
"My father has promised me in marriage to a man from a land far from the ocean's melodies. I know my duty, but would spend one last night at water's edge."
"What land is his?"
"Rohan. A land of horses, I'm told."
"No, lady. A land where the wind sings through oceans of waving grasses instead of drops of water. A land of beauty with people brave of heart."
"How know you this?" she asked.
"I am a friend of Rohan," he responded.
