She's Leaving Home

My bags are packed, I’m ready to go – and I am scared. After today nothing will ever be the same. I will never return here as the baby of the family, the cosseted only daughter or, even, ‘our princess’.

No doubt I will visit, but it will never again be where I live. For I will not return as simply ‘daughter’ or ‘sister’; in future I will be a wife, a mother.

I will ride out of the gates as the Princess of Dol Amroth, but will only ever ride back as the Queen of Rohan; and I am scared.
