|Ouch. That hurt.|

|At least they are no longer trying to hide things from the boys, and Boromir is realizing it is acceptable to weep. She's done the right thing here, and I love Eomund deeply already.|

|Heart-rending chapter; as Denethor's orphaned children learn the difference between uplifting stories and terrible truths. |
Small quibble - I can't see the boys referring to their father's sister as "Indis"; they are much too young for such familiarity in a culture that prizes good manners and a certain gravity, even among kin.
Author Reply: Wasn't that hideous - the poor things - and yet, how else could Indis tell them? They were so aware of the land's history of violence... it broke my heart!
As for what the children call her - I was stumped by this - Aunt sounded so 'modern' that I didn't know what to do. So I took the easy way out and just left them calling her by name.
ANY suggestions would be most welcome!
PS - thanks for reading and responding!
Author Reply: Hi,Raksha,
A friend finally came up with a good term of endearment for Indis - so I have changed the chapters affected. Hope this works for you. It does for me.
