Summer's Lease by Raksha The Demon

Rated PG13
[Reviews - 1]
Table of Contents

Tired of posting cranky Eowyn pieces, I decided to post this 600-word vignette, wherein Eowyn samples summer pleasures in early Fourth Age Ithilien.  (possibly inspired by certain 'Betty & Veronica Summer Fun' comics from the 'Archie' group that I read in the 60's, only in reverse, with Middle-earth hunks rather than silly teenaged boys.  And by a Shakespeare quote.)  Rated PG-13 for light sensuality/sexuality...
