So here it is, only a year late. Love ya' Erin ;)
The setting sun was bathing Iruian's rooms, and the women in them, in a warm rosy glow.
At one sofa Leia was giving a very pregnant Arwen some tips for getting a fussy baby to sleep through the night while on the other side of the room DG was having her hair done by Inara and Padme.
“This is a lovely room.”
Iruian stood up to greet the new guest. “Welcome, Eowyn.”
“I'm sorry I'm late.” The pale woman said “Farmir was having a bad day and...”
Iruian smiled warmly at her, “It's more then all right. This gathering is suppose to be for our comfort; there are no expectations.”
Eowyn sighed, “It's been a long time since no one's expected anything of me.”
“I understand that.” Iruian put a hand on the other womans arm. “I grew up with both the expectations of my father's court and the Bene Gesserit's planning. It wasn't until I threw off both of them that my life finally gained some peace.”
Eowyn a small smile, “Peace, that would be nice.”
“Well, let's start with some of this tea Inara brought, she said that it's 'Kaylee's special blend'.” Iruian poured two small cup fulls, “But I should warn you, it is strong.”
“I once drank with a dwarf. I'm sure I can handle this.” Eowyn said with her first true smile in a long time.
