1. To Soothe the Savage Beast
The lion's roaring sent the healer scurrying from the room and right into his brother. With an apologetic 'My lord', she smothered a grimace and hurried off.
Amused, he entered the room and found Boromir in bed, glowering; a broken leg and forced immobility clearly did not suit him.
'You really are an awful patient,' Faramir commented mildly, dropping into a chair beside the bed. 'You're scaring the healers away.'
Boromir growled something unintelligible, finishing with what sounded like 'Valar take the horse'.
Hiding a smile, Faramir stretched out his legs and began his tale, hoping it might help soothe the savage beast.
