Ailment challenges: Nausea/Vomitting - "but it's hot"

I hope I'm doing this right, as this is the first time I'm posting a drabble to a community like this, and my first drabble in the Tolkien fandom as well. I also realise that the week of the weekly challenge is over, but  hope it's all right to post it since no new challenge has been issued yet. If I'm wrong, please accept my sincere apologies and just delete this.


Title: “… but it's hot”
Author: Winterwitch
Challenge: Nausea/Vomitting
Characters/Pairing: Aragorn, Éowyn
Rating: PG
Warnings: none
Source: LotR, movie-verse (TTT)
Disclaimer: Middle-Earth belongs to Tolkien, I'm just playing a bit with it for fun.
Note: Many thanks to shadowycat for looking this over! All remaining faults are my own.

As they walked on, Aragorn started to feel queasy. Burping softly, he tamed his stomach down by sheer willpower, but only a frantic sip from his spirits bottle saved him from the disgrace of losing his meal in front of everybody.

What's wrong with me? I've eaten worse before with less trouble.

He caught her smile, grimacing in reply which cost him his concentration, following it up with the loudest belch he had ever heard, much to the amusement of his audience.

By the Valar, I'll never eat anything like that again. That woman can fight, but surely not cook.
