Summary: To the land of Mordor, where the shadows lie...
Crossroads Above the Tower
Down through the pass above Cirith Ungol staggers Frodo, alone and groping. He cannot see. There is an unlight in his eyes.
Into his mind the thought comes: Only put on the Ring, and all that is invisible shall be laid bare to thee...
A heavy tread raises sudden fear.
Dimly, he sees the man’s shape as Boromir falls to his knees, vomits abjectly. His outstretched hand grabs Frodo’s wrist – in which fist he clutches the Ring.
Boromir stays on all fours, panting – so miserable a figure, it cuts through Ring-lust like shears through paper.
