Note: If Faramir walked in darkness... where did Eowyn go?

“...Then what happened?”

Gentle fingers brushed her hair, teasing out the tangles with careful patience.

“After He fell... I fell too... there was a high thin shriek vanishing into darkness. I thought it was mine, and for a moment I was ashamed...”

“Never be ashamed of screaming...” Her grandam patted her shoulder “...only be sure ‘tis worth screaming over.”

Eowyn nodded. “What was that?” she said.

“Ah... they call for you,” Morwen stroked her hair.

“Do I have to go?”

“Yes, little one... this is nothing but a moment during darkness.”

“Will I come back...?”

“Not yet, sweeting... not yet...”
