At the End of All Things

“I never meant to,” Frodo begins, but Boromir cuts him off.  

“I told you to keep Sting. You did what was needed.”

Exhausted absolution. Frodo tries staunching the wound, but Boromir refuses: “‘Tis useless.” He gestures shakily towards the doorway: “Go!”

But some ties will not be cut. Frodo refuses: “We came together – and so we’ll end.”

They prop themselves against a rock, heat swelling behind them.  

“Few, I guess, have won such a victory,” Frodo says after awhile. “Let’s go in peace!”

Boromir smiles slightly, shuts his eyes...

And so ended the reign of Sauron, Lord of the Rings
