How Many Years? ~ by Marta

The road to the hallows above Minas Tirith is travelled only once a generation, on the twentieth birthday of the current steward's oldest son. Denethor leads Boromir down that scarce-walked path, and Denethor finally gives Boromir an honest answer to a question he asked as a child.

Stories focusing on Boromir and Faramir as youths, and their relationship with their father Denethor.)

Why This Story?

Boromir once asked Denethor how many years made a steward and a king, and Denethor's answer was recorded in the Red Book. But did Denethor really believe his answer or was he giving what was politically expected? This is my attempt to write Denethor giving a real answer, and so further explore the relationship between Boromir and Denethor.
