Fairy-Tale Romance

The King of Rohan was thoughtful.

He had noticed the shy sideways glances between the Third Marshal and Dol Amroth’s pretty daughter. A smile, eyes demurely lowered; a dance, hands lingering about a neat waist.

What was it Boromir had said? You have a cousin. I have a cousin. One day we must each wed; think about it. Théodred had chuckled, then, but the world was different now.

A word, a laugh, a sprightly retort – wit, and not just beauty and lineage! In an instant his decision was made.

I am sorry, Éomer. Choose another; she is not for you.
