I must confess that I didn't realize that the young man of the story was Eldarion until the very end. I found your story very expressive and enjoyable.
Well, the deception was deliberate! :)
Thanks a lot for reading and for your kind words. :)
Nope didn't guess right but that is ok!!! Ellynn you wrote this ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFULLY!! You talked about poetry well my dear--THIS WAS POETRY in its PUREST FORM--EXCELLENT AND MEMORABLE!!!
Oh, you exaggerate! *blush* Really. I am not that good.
But I did my best to deceive my readers this time, and I'm glad it worked. *grins* Thank you so much for reading and for your kind review. :)
This was very nice. I love that moment when two people realize they exist, and for no one but each other. But what makes this special is watching it happen through a mother's eyes, seeing that circle revolve and come back around, and her pride in knowing that she raised him right, and he is indeed a strong and loving man.
Aww, thank you so much for your kind words. I am glad you like this. :)
