Rohan had a rich oral tradition of songs and legends, writing was rarely required in the Golden Hall; but now she lived with a scholar.
Gripping her quill tightly she laboriously formed the letters that the schoolmaster had taught her. She wished she were riding her horse instead, the wind blowing through her hair as she galloped through the fields. Pushing those dreams aside, she sighed deeply and returned to her task.
That night Faramir found a parchment note with shaky letters on his pillow. "Ich lieber dich - Éowyn." Never before had a note been so dear to him.
