“The documents, you wanted, my lord.” The Steward entered the King’s study and stared in surprise at the tray on the desk. It was too early for the midday meal and breakfast had been served three hours ago.

“Thank you, sire.” Faramir smiled and took a cake. It seemed that the new King was full of surprises.
