Scatha's Teeth

Meduseld, August 3019, T.A.

Mithrandir, finishing his account, earned much praise, for this was not a story Edoras had heard before. Then the Lady Éowyn, lifting her golden cup, said, “I too have a dragon-tale, which our people brought from the North with this treasure.” But her brother stayed her, saying, “Not all in our company would welcome the reminder. Master Gimli needs no more reason to rebuke me!”

The Lady Éowyn was ashamed, but Gimli, rising from his seat, bowed deeply. “We have no jewel in our treasury to match your sister’s courtesy!” And when her guests departed, she gave him the cup.

Ah, Gimli's such a stand-up guy (dwarf), and very gracious of Éowyn to give him the cup. Let's hope that this is the start of improved relations between Rohirrim and Durin's folk. (I should also tell you I'm a sucker for stories where people tell stories.)

That's a lot of interaction to fit into a drabble and yet, it doesn't feel squeezed!
I think all three of them come off well--and a piece of Scatha's hoard is finally returned to its original owners!

I love it when Gimli shows his manners. He is such a surprise in so many way. I enjoyed this very much.
