For the "Thief" challenge.

A Thief in the Night

After guarding her heart so fiercely for all those years, Éowyn felt quite the fool for losing it - twice! - within the space of twenty-three days.

The first man to whom she lost it spurned the gift, but oh-so-gently, with anguish in his eyes. His pity cut sharp and bitter as the winter wind, leaving her to ravaged pride and desperation.

The second came like a thief in the night. Soft as a shadow, tender as the first warm breath of spring, he sought her fragile heart, binding it to his even before she knew it was gone.
