Realities of Parenthood

As a teenager, Éowyn had imagined herself Théodred’s bride. They would have children; providing an heir to the Mark would be her task. She had never thought past the ‘it’s a boy’ announcement…

So much had changed since her innocent days. Providing heirs to the Mark was not her responsibility – her children were of the House of Húrin, genteel Gondorian nobility.

‘What a shame,’ she thought now, ‘that I did not think of real motherhood, then.’

She paused, mid-thought, “Boromir!” she yelled, “Desist! Stop that now!”

Then continued, ‘For I could have practised my skills on a pack of wargs…’

In my long series, Éowyn and Faramir name their first-born for his uncle.
