"What will we do now, brother?"
"We will go live with our uncle."
"But I want to stay here."
"I know, but our uncle is the king. His place is in Edoras, so we must go there."
"But I don't know anyone in Edoras."
"You know me. Soon you will know our cousin Theodred."
"Is Theodred the king's son?"
"Aye."
"Does he have a sister?"
"Nay."
"Maybe he will have one someday."
"Nay. Theodred's mother is dead."
"Like ours."
"Aye." Eomer knelt before her. "Worry not, sister. I will take care of you."
"Promise?"
"Aye. That is what brothers do."

This is so sweet--the way that Eomer's trying to make sure that Eowyn feels as comfortable as possible. Those last lines are such a perfect setup for the relationship we see between them in LotR.

That's lovely and rings very true about the two of them.

Such a sad, sweet moment! I love Eomer's big brother protectiveness and Eowyn's trust.

This must have been such a confusing and bewildering situation. I love how Eomer stays calm and persuasive. It's a good counterpoint to his younger sister, who doesn't know how to take any of this.

very nice! It's great you fit this dialogue into 100 words. I liked who you picked out of all the LotR characters. Also great scene selection. :)
