Fic: ‘Eaten his fill.’  
Title: Eaten his fill.
Fandom: Lord of the Rings (movies).
Rating: (G)
Time Period: Before events in Lord of the Rings.
Summary: Théoden has sent for Éomer.

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

This comes immediately after A feast not for one; you just knew, after A feast not for one, Théoden would get his revenge on Éomer for telling Éowyn to get him to try some!

I’ve just now got to get the possible epilogue to this out of my head!

“You sent for me, my lord?” Hand resting on the hilt of his sword, he stands straight before his uncle, ready for anything his uncle, and King, might command.

“We have not spent much time together of late, Éomer,” Théoden smiles, sitting forward and resting his hands on the table.

Éomer relaxes, bowing his head. “Not of late, my lord, no,” he replies and sits when Théoden gestures to a seat near him.

“Are you hungry, Éomer?”

He nods and Théoden’s hand rises, waving for food to be brought. Soon, a bowl of heartily refreshing stew sits before Éomer. “It looks, and smells, good, Uncle.” Éomer lifts the spoon. “Are you not eating?”

Théoden’s lips briefly quirk. “I have eaten my fill, nephew. How are the patrols?”

“There are Orcs lurking across the Isen, Uncle,” Éomer begins and brings the spoon upward ...

... and immediately pales. Théoden discreetly nods to the nearby door. Éomer half-smiles and nods, swallowing his mouthful of stew.

“Another bowl, Éomer?”

Éomer coughs, reaching for a nearby goblet of water. “Certainly, Uncle. Shall we bring you a bowl as well? It is rude of me to eat when you have nothing before you.”

Théoden laughs and shakes his head. “As I earlier said, nephew, I have already eaten my fill.”

I hope Éomer's learned a lesson from this!
