“Faramir is crying again,” Finduilas fretted.
“Let me try to comfort him; you are weary, dearest.” Denethor rocked the babe in his arms. Boromir had never been so fretful as this little one, but then Boromir was the perfect son and heir.
Suddenly a flash of foresight came upon him. Faramir, now a man, kneeling and surrendering the Steward’s Rod to that rascally scoundrel, Thorongil, now being hailed by the crowd as king!
The baby screamed more loudly.
“Take him, Finduilas.”
Denethor shuddered at what the vision might portend. Where was Boromir? Boromir would never yield to some northern upstart.
