A Man of Worth - Éowyn Drabble

Why does no one understand? I cannot lie here. I want to fight and die beside my brother and beside him, though he loves me not.

What hope remains for me?

The Steward turns to look at me, his gaze both stern and sad. My heart leaps. It were almost as if l looked upon the Lord Aragorn. I sense great strength within this man too, and rare nobility.

He gently smiles upon me; his grey eyes kind and insightful. I see an inner pain there too, reflecting mine own.

Maybe Lord Aragorn is not the only man of worth?

Another drabble, for the "There and Back" challenge.
