They were, of course, the best the fair country had to offer. Strong and tall, taught to ride before they could even walk, these soldiers of Rohan, these horsemen of lore were a mighty force not to be casually dismissed. However, if he could scatter them, render them leaderless, their strength could be diminished and their threat to his plans would be eliminated.

One man lay between him and the realization of his designs. Deep in the innermost reaches of his heart, Gríma hated as well as feared Éomer. But someday he would achieve the removal of the king’s sister-son.

Title: Untitled
Age: Third Age - Ring War
PoV: First Person - Gríma Wormtongue
Other Characters: Éowyn
InstaDrabble Words: fettering, uphold, caustic, smite

She gives me a caustic smile. One day I will smite that smug look from her face.

“My lord desist, I have a certain station to uphold.”

She feels as if they are fettering her here; a caged wild bird, perhaps, who longs for her freedom. I will offer her what she desires and she will in turn provide me with what I need. It matters not what she says or does, or even if she is agreeable. When all has come to pass, I will have my way with her and her indomitable spirit will at last be broken.
