Upon the Edge of Doom
But ere he can speak, even as his hand starts to lower, Boromir grabs his arm, rips the Ring from his grasp.
Outrage cries out from that captive part of Frodo’s soul, twisting his face in a snarl: “It’s mine!”
A moment, their eyes meet. Boromir snarls likewise, holds the Ring out of Frodo’s reach. His other hand holds Frodo at arm’s length.
Desperation and other memory move Frodo, then, and Boromir gasps, as blood spatters Frodo’s face. The man drops to his knees…
… and the Ring slips from his grip, rings once upon the stone, and is gone.
