Eat Drink and Be Merry challenge - Wedding: 'Always the Bridesmaid?': Kortirion

Title: Always the Bridesmaid?
Author: Kortirion
Character: Rosie Cotton
Rating: G
Source: The Shire
Disclaimer: Tolkien’s creation is Middle-earth and all who dwell there.

Eglantine married after harvest, circlets of golden wheatears on her dark curls. Holly and twin-sister Ivy wed before the winter feast. She’d been bridesmaid to each, but there was no wedding for Rosie. Oh several had tried... but she’d made it clear – that question was not to be asked!

Daphnia’s bouquet was snowdrops, while daffadillies decorated Marigold’s hair, but still no wedding blooms for Rosie. Some murmured ‘hoighty-toighty’; others muttered ‘Sam? He’ll not be back now... not after bein’ took by a Baggins’.

Rosie raised her chin.

“He’ll be back – and I’ll dance at his wedding – see if I don’t!”
