Gain your bearings (…owyn)

B2MeM Challenge: b1 Forth …orlingas: Shieldmaiden; n38 Steward and his sons: Captain of the Ithilien Rangers
Format: Drabble
Rating: General
Warnings: None
Characters: …owyn
Pairings: …owyn/Faramir
Summary: Fighting is not the hardest thing she's ever done.

She had grown calling great deeds courage, but had lately learned that one can do the impossible and remain a coward.

Fight. Dissemble. Lose. Kill. Breathe. These things she could do.

What …owyn daughter of …omund could not do was remain tranquil before the Steward's insistent shower of respect. Of interest. Of affection. That a captain of men understood what bravery she needed, that he demanded nothing, upset her.

Giving one's heart to another-- this she could do.

But receive someone's heart?



In her years she had learned to survive, but had never learned to live.
