1. Ties That Bind

Boromir twisted the red cords together gently where they lay looped around his belt. Faramir, far away. Pippin’s eyes were bright with questions.

Boromir reached for a small pouch, tipped out three more cords, discolored, worn almost to threads.

“These my brother gave me when first I rode to war. An old custom. One to tie me to life, one to Gondor, one to those I love.”

“And on your belt?”

“The day I left for Rivendell. We need no cords to bind us. But I wear them.”

Faramir shivered. His brother’s face was peaceful, but the cords…. Only two remained.
