For the "Bitter" challenge

The Cup

“Six weeks ago? Six weeks?

“Not even our swiftest messengers could have reached you in time. He stayed here just the one night; we lent him your mare, Windan. He left you a note…”
Would that I could wait, but I dare not tarry. If all goes well, I will return with hope renewed; if not, then know that the hours we spent together were among my happiest memories. Westu hal, dear friend, until we meet again.
For hours Théodred sat alone, head bowed, food and drink untouched.

“Shouldn’t we….?”

“No,” Eomer murmured. “This cup of bitterness is his alone.”
