Title: The Groomsman's Warning Author: celandineb Fandom: LotR Characters: Imrahil, Denethor Rating: general Length: 100 words Summary: Imrahil waits with Denethor on the morning of the latter's wedding day. Note: For telperion1, at the request of just_ann_now, who suggested Prince Imrahil, "a treasure from a faraway land".
Imrahil watched as the Steward's son adjusted his garments. Denethor's nervousness reassured Imrahil, if only slightly, that emotion did affect him after all.
"Are you ready?"
"I believe so, yes." Denethor took a deep breath. "I look forward to having you as a brother."
"And I you," Imrahil replied equably, although he remained doubtful about the wisdom of Finduilas's choice. His sister was convinced that Denethor loved her, but Imrahil wondered how that love would be shown over time.
"Remember, however, that you are taking the dearest treasure of Dol Amroth for your own; do not fail to cherish her."
