Éowyn enjoyed visiting Ithilien’s Elves. The children did too – but, sometimes, the extra freedom seemed to intoxicate them until they were embarrassingly wild.
Legolas, being helpful, offered to take the older two on ‘an adventure’.
“Not Théodwyn,” Boromir said, “she’s girly – she’s even afraid of spiders!”
“So am I, sometimes,” said Legolas, and Éowyn could see her son thinking ‘Girly Elf!’
“I have seen spiders bigger than your pony,” the Elf went on, “and tiny ones whose bite can also kill.”
“Dead?” Boromir questioned.
No more was said but, as the three walked away, Boromir held Legolas’ hand… tightly.
In my long series of stories Faramir and Éowyn call their first son Boromir - followed by Théodwyn, Finduilas, Echthelion, and Elboron, their youngest.
