The Visit

From his high point Osred could see for miles. They said the plains were like the sea but Osred thought, more, that the sea might be like the Riddermark. Today all was glinting white and he could see, far away, riders.

Fascinated, he watched them close, as his feet froze in their too big boots.

By the time they wheeled into the farmyard, all the family were there.

“Gifts!” said the lead rider, “From Éomer King, to celebrate midwinter.”

Bacon, cheese, dried fish!

Best of all, though, was the knowledge that they were not forgotten, these children of the war.

So that's farewell to Osred and his family for now.
