Oshun's 2007 Birthday Challenge
1. Battle Plans - Vilwarin
When Faramir left his tent, the sun blinded him momentarily. It was hot in Harondor and the air was dry. He whipped the sweat from his brow and walked towards the King Elessar's tent. Éomer was already there, lounging in a chair and holding a map in his hands. They nodded to each other.
"This day we fight. Are you ready, brother?" The Rohír asked, standing up and clasping Faramir's forearm.
"I have been ready for a long time." Where now is Aragorn?"
"Here he is," a voice called and soon the king entered his tent. "I saw your lamp burning long into the night, Faramir. Did you finish the plans?"
Faramir grinned and handed him a scroll. "Of course, my lord, it is all standing."
Aragorn thanked him and Éomer commented: "With Elessar's skills at leadership and his Steward's clever strategies no one will be able to withstand us."
"Not to forget," Faramir added, "Éomer's heart and courage."
