Author’s Note: I most highly recommend George RR Martin's amazing series, "A Song of Ice and Fire".

“Why do you not practice with us?”

“They say I am too young, and that I must practice my needlework instead. As if I could protect Rohan with a needle! Shieldmaidens do not sew.”

“Nor do they weep. Do you have a blade?”

Eowyn pulled it out from where she held it hidden under her apron: her greatest treasure, Morwen’s blade.

He whistled softly in admiration. “A sword is a kind of a needle, no? You could do fine needlework with this.” Eowyn grinned.

“Remember,” Syrio whispered, “ keep your needle sharp; then your needlework will always be clean and lovely.”
