This drabble is part of a series for the 'Film' challenges, featuring Éowyn.

"First Night"

As a girl Éowyn had day-dreamed about her wedding. She would be nineteen, the sun would glint on the golden roof of Meduseld, and on her golden maned young husband.

Now she stood beside this dark-haired man, in Minas Tirith, on a moonless night; at twenty-five an old maid approaching the wedding bed.

Something fiery streaked across the blackness of the sky. She gasped. A belated fire ball from Mount Doom, perhaps? A dire omen.

“No,” said Faramir. “It is a phoenix, newly hatched, taking wing. A wondrous portent of new beginnings, my love.”

Beside him, Éowyn at last relaxed.
