A VERY Interesting Question...

Challenge Details

'And this I remember of Boromir as a boy, when we together learned the tale of our sires and the history of our city, that always it displeased him that his father was not king. "How many hundreds of years needs it to make a steward a king, if the king returns not?" he asked. "Few years, maybe, in other places of less royalty," my father answered. "In Gondor ten thousand years would not suffice." Alas! poor Boromir. Does that not tell you something of him?'

Hmmm...a very interesting question. So how many years does it take? What was Frodo's reaction to that? Or Faramir's? How did that question impact the people who knew about it? What did Faramir think of that question when Aragorn was made King? What did Denethor REALLY think about the question, or about his son that asked it? Did child!Faramir have a reaction to it?

I'm sure there are other questions that can be asked, but the challenge is this. Write a story about a character's reaction to that question...or a drabble/poem, or whatever strikes your fancy.
