Summary: To the land of Mordor, where the shadows lie...

Choices

He’d rammed his sword down the beast’s throat. Her bite had caught him, her venom entered his blood.  

Sickened, he manages a few steps ere he stops, doubled-over.  

“I can’t,” he gasps.  

“You must!”  

Boromir pleads: “If you’d lend me strength…” In the unlit shadow-shapes world, Frodo cannot see his face, but hears his fear, that temptation twists. “Only for awhile – just a little while...”

The Ring’s grown craftier; so Frodo cuts himself off from pity – to save them both.

“Then shall you end ‘Boromir the betrayer’?”

Silence.

“Then you crawl, and I’ll grope, but we trust our own strength!”
