Hide the Scissors
“Explain yourselves, please,” Théodwyn requested, trying to ignore piles of hair that littered the floor like small golden haystacks.
“People kept calling me Éowyn!” Éomer burst out, glaring at his sister.
Théodwyn willed herself not to laugh, instead asking, “What people?”
“Éothain,” was the sullen reply, “and…Théodred said he never knew who it was until we turned around!”
No words would soothe his pride, so Theodwyn turned to her daughter. “Éowyn ,” she asked, “why did you cut off your hair?”
Éowyn turned tearful eyes to her mother. “Because…" she said softly, "... I wanted to be like Éomer.”
