Men of the Twilight

Faramir had called them Men of Twilight, but reconsidered after witnessing the tender regard this golden-maned warrior showed for his equally golden, though shadowed, lady.

He helped her to a sun-warmed bench amongst fragrant herbs in the Gardens of Healing, protective of her bandaged arm. Kissing her brow and calling her Sister, he promised to return after seeing to his wounded men.

Faramir watched as she sat unmoved, seeming far away from that sunlit nook — most peaceful of his battered City. He resolved then to learn more of this fair but sombre visitor.

Would that he could brighten her twilight....

Men of the twilight, or of the newly dawning day?  A lovely image of Eowyn and the new Steward regarding her.

Hi Larner!

Men of the twilight, or of the newly dawning day? A lovely image of Eowyn and the new Steward regarding her.

Thank you for your kind words, Larner!

I think Faramir's natural curiosity would be piqued by this golden couple.... but he would become intrigued in a different way once he realized Éowyn was accompanied by her brother, not by a husband. 

He doesn't know it yet, but a new day is indeed dawning for him!
