7. Daybreak — Raksha the Demon

For Elena Tiriel - HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!! I managed to include Events in March, a mention of eagles, and oh yes - Faramir. I'm not entirely sure that the last line works, but can't think of a definitely better one at the moment. (the idea of the earth shaking was inspired by Stefania's story Avoidance: http://www.storiesofarda.com/chapterlistview.asp?SID=3626)

Enjoy!

(Raksha the Demon)


Daybreak
by Raksha the Demon


He awakened with a pounding head and a gladdened heart.

For a moment, he could not remember how either condition had come to pass. Then the memories of an enormous singing Eagle, its joyful tidings, and the revelry that had followed, opened in his mind like the pages of a great tale of old.

The sky had darkened; the Eagle had come; and the earth had shaken with the force of their Enemy's Fall!

Faramir of Gondor arose. Opening the windows, he looked for the first time upon a dawn free of Shadow.

And he had lived to see it!
