5. Third Age - Pre Ring War - Good

Title: Boyhood
Age: Third Age - Pre Ring War
PoV: Third Person Objective
Other Characters: Théodred, Éomer

“Race you to that hill!”

“What hill?” Éomer asked as he turned his mount to face his cousin; but Théodred’s horse was already off and running across the plain. Still a little small for his new horse, it took Éomer a moment to coax him to a run. Yet he reached the small rise just moments after the other boy.

“Is that how you will demonstrate fairness when you are king?” he taunted.

Théodred sidled his horse up next to Éomer’s and clasped his shoulder, giving his cousin a toothy grin. “No! By then I shall have a faster horse.”

Title: Untitled
Age: Third Age - Pre Ring War
PoV: First Person - Éomer
Other Characters: Éowyn
InstaDrabble Words: sister, emotional, deviant, hunter, mythmakers

My sister. My dear, sweet, emotional, deviant sister. Now she fancies herself a hunter. I suppose I should not scorn her. It has not been long since she came to me, begging to be taught the skills of a rider. To no one’s surprise, she learned faster than most of the young boys apprenticed to the horse masters. But a hunter? If it is to be, I must take it upon myself to teach her, as I have before. I wonder often if she realizes that she is the stuff of stories, a character mythmakers would die to write of.

Title: In Dreams
Age: Third Age - Pre Ring War
PoV: First Person - Aragorn
InstaDrabble Words: tower, tree, suspicious, worldly

I see it in my dreams: a white tower, gleaming in the bright sun as if diamonds lined its walls. In front stands a white tree in a marble courtyard suspiciously empty of people. I am there. I feel the warm breeze blowing through my hair.

An otherworldly voice calls my name, calls me Elessar, the elfstone. I turn away from this voice for it mocks me. No gem of the elves am I, no diamond in the rough. When I awaken I am naught more than a ranger. That fate is not mine so long as the Shadow endures.
