Fic: ‘What he sees.’  
Title: What he sees.
Fandom: Lord of the Rings (movies).

Summary: What Éomer sees when he is at court.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

This can be grouped with Choking on darkness and In a darkened room.

When within the confines of the Golden Hall, he watches. Always a man of action and word, he is still; a stillness that is seen and wondered at by many. He excuses it to others by saying his mind is elsewhere, an excuse that is accepted.

And he sees.

He sees the eyes of the King’s counsellor wander, time and time again, to his sister. He sees the lust concealed within the pale eyes; he sees it flare into open desire when the worm thinks everyone’s eyes are elsewhere. He sees the King pale and wither.

When he sees the worm’s eyes flicker to his sister time and time again, his stomach turns and it is all he can do not to run the pathetic excuse of a man through with his sword.

I must applaud his restraint.

Though part of me thinks he may have been doing the king a favor if he /had/ run him through with a sword... err run the counsellor through, not the king.

I think his restraint is born from a small thing called 'survival instinct'.

Oh Eomer. How he held himself back, I do not know!!!

He must have had faith in his uncle being able to see sense despite what Saruman was doing.
