6. Warrior and Friend

I am a warrior. I fight because it is my duty, because of my love for Middle-earth, and for the people I have grown to love.


Now you say I must choose among those loves. If the honorable choice is to save Gondor, then I lose you. Without your friendship, the time I have sworn to remain east of the sea would become but an obligation. And if I say that you are more important to me than Gondor? Is it a dishonor to choose you at the cost of all else?



The warrior closed his eyes and turned away from his dearest friend to do the honorable thing.
