2. Apology

A few days afterwards, my father sent me to fetch Èomer and bring him to Elessar's tent on the Pelennor field. I found him near the Houses of Healing. As I approached him, he looked up at me, with an expression of guilt.

"I know I shouldn't have left you there," I apologized to him. "I was overwhelmed!"

"I'm a King with no Queen," he explained. "When your father introduced us, and our first conversation was started, I could see a leader of her people. You are great ambassador of your country, I am not a man of foresight, but I can see you ruling Rohan with me."

"You are the King of a country far away from my seaside home," I said with sadness. "I am not accepting defeat. I will decide if this alliance is to happen. Come, you are to go to Lord Elfstone's tents. Your sister is recovering well I hear?"

"Yes," he agreed. "She is my family, I have always looked out for her; isn't that the instinct that all older family member have?"

"Indeed," I said. "My brothers can act like such mother-hens to me sometimes."

My mother had died five years prior to the Downfall of Sauron.

"My apologies," he said sympathetically. "Go back to the citadel; we will talk soon, yes?"

"Of course," I smiled. "Next time we will have to talk for longer, and get to know each other more if I agree to your proposal!"

He was so well spoken, that I was sure he didn't speak like that to my brothers and father.
