Ch. 37: Separation Anxiety

I am glad that Faramir made his big brother pay for his insensitivity.  And I do admire the way Boromir stoically endured the snub as well-deserved. 

It is hard for older children to have younger siblings in constant attendance - and looking grown-up often seems synonymous with cruelty when you are only nine.  But still!  He could have said something to Nanny - she would have been understanding.   The way he faced her after having lost Faramir was very brave, though.  He will make a good Captain-General, if he has the nerve to face a carer whose child he has lost!  Orcs could be no more scary!!

This is one of my very, very favourite stories - and these chapters are well up to standard.  Delightful.

Bodkin - thank you!  Yes, Faramir ignoring Boromir was probably more effective than anything Nanny could do.

Yep, having younger sibs around all the time is a pain -- Nanny just wasn't thinking about either boy wanting time away from the other.

Boromir knows when he's done something wrong. And by now he's learned that lying or trying to hide a wrong-doing will only get him in more trouble - so he might as well face up to it.  :)

I'm glad you liked it!
