A Shieldmaiden, Tempted

Title: A Shieldmaiden, Tempted
Author: annmarwalk
Characters: Eowyn, Frodo
Source: The Two Towers, but definitely AU
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Disclaimer: Not mine, merely borrowed for 100 words.
Summary: Eowyn, too, is tempted by the Ring. Originally posted at HASA, but fits the bill here nicely.



When the Company arrives, she quickly arranges meals and beds.

Later, she joins them, listens, and considers:

This device - could it not be used to restore her uncle’s health and strength? Then, they could ride to Gondor’s aid. She too would ride – is she not a shieldmaiden? Could she not be a marshal? Could she not –

How to get it? She eyes the hobbit speculatively.

He flushes, looks away; then looks back, speculatively.

Catching his glance, she gasps; then quickly begins to think: how to rearrange the beds...

Something rouses Sam from his dozing; he wakes abruptly, sensing danger.
