Sports Challenges; Swimming. Not Drowning.

This challenge made me think of a drabble I wrote almost exactly two years ago - Deep as the Sea... for the Rainbow challenge 'Blue'.

And so this is a sequel - it takes place about one minute or less after that one - but is pretty self-explanatory, you don't have to read that one.

Not Drowning

The first time he looked into her eyes he felt as though he was drowning; sinking deeper and deeper into their blue depths.

She was a princess from the sea – how clichéd could you get?

And oh! How he would have snorted in derision if any of his bards used such a description. As well then never to admit how he felt…

But every young man of the Mark spent warm days diving into river pools – Éomer simply had to work out how to swim in this new situation.

He bowed and spoke politely, “Princess Lothiriel, it is my pleasure…”
