Close Friend for Nettle Tea

When Éowyn was very young he was her closest friend. At their secret spot she would arrange cups of honey-sweetened nettle-tea and small cakes topped with rose-petals neatly on a bed of leaves, and turn once around her axis...widdershins, to make him appear.

She heard his laughter falling trough the leaves...and diaphanous hands gave her plait a friendly tug.

Later...when her world contracted and hardened, she sometimes imagined him returning...
At dusk...on a river of air...lifting her hair and caressing her spine; winding around her in a dance towards the doorway of fading sunlight at the bottom of the garden...widdershins.
