Answered Prayers

Seldom did I meddle in matters of politics or diplomacy, unless my counsel was asked; but I had promised my son to plead on his behalf.

"Faramir has studied the elves, their language and history, their subtle ways. Would not that knowledge, that understanding, prove more vital in this instance than Boromir's forthrightness?"

My lord husband pondered, drumming his fingers on the table; finally sighed. "You are wise in this, dear heart, as in so many things. Faramir, this quest is yours: do not disappoint us.”

Thank you, Faramir whispered as he kissed me goodnight, his eyes dancing with excitement.
