|"You need to take rest yourself, my lord," Beregond insisted. |
"You would order me, Captain?" There was a dangerous glint in Aragorn's tired eyes.
"You too are a soldier, sire, and a healer as well. We take rest when we may, the better to defeat the enemy."
Beregond is truly a brave and good man, to be this stubborn on behalf of his king.
All we can do is to try to follow the path of goodness ourselves and fight against evil.
All of us need to remember that simple -- yet difficult -- wisdom.
Author Reply: Thank you, that is so true.

|"My feelings are as strong as yours, and stronger, but I cannot be ruled by how I feel. All we can do is to try to follow the path of goodness ourselves and fight against evil."|
How well said by Aragorn. But i can also feel the frustration that Eowyn has. I wonder if she would strike out herself if she found the lowly thugs who did this.
Nice contrast of thoughts of how to deal with the thugs from Aragorn and Eowyn.
Author Reply: Many thanks for your much appreciated review. I'm pleased you enjoyed this. I would not give the thugs much chance of survival if they were in the same room as Eowyn!

|As always, your quote at the top of your chapter perfectly summarizes the story. "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good". Faramir of all people most exemplifies that teaching. He would have been the first to tell his wife, his King and friend, and all of his loyal soldiers that if they were to sink to doing the same things to the Ruffians, they would themselves become like them. I am, as before, very impressed with how much Eowyn has grown since the willful, lost girl who left her responsibility to rule her people, seeking instead death with the Riders. She is setting a strong example for Elbeth on how to do one's duty even when your heart would do otherwise. I had to laugh a little, though. As Eowyn worked out some of her stress on the poor carrots, I took back my comment about what Legolas's Woodelves might have wanted to do. With out her husband's influence for good, I would have been more afraid of a distraught Shield Maiden! I also liked Aragorn's counsel to the frightened young soldier. He said exactly what Faramir himself would have. It was good to see Beregond looking out for the welfare of both the Prince he now serves, and the King who gave him back his life. But what now? "Come quickly" might not be good! |

|How difficult to feel such fury and to know that one must not fall as a result of such anger! But Aragorn, of course, is right. And Eowyn must remain apart from her beloved husband just as she wants to assure herself he is safe and on the road to recovery, and she, too, must fight the tendency toward vengeance when she knows that is not right.|
