The Anxious Bridegroom

My horse is saddled, I’m ready to go – and I’m scared. Not, of course, that I would ever admit to such a thing!

I am riding out to meet the party from Dol Amroth; to meet my future wife. My future queen. What if she is disappointed in Édoras, in the Riddermark, in me?

Best think of the forthcoming days as a campaign, and hide my fear as I always have.

“You cannot wear that!” says Éothain. “If you want something on your head it should be a proper, courtly, hat…”

I scowl and put on my helm despite him.
