For the “Preparations” challenge.
Four coming back, of how many? I’ll not dwell on that; Boromir and Faramir are among them, that is what matters to me.
Hot sweet tea, for shock. Faramir doesn’t like his sweet, but he’ll drink this – Boromir will see to it. Comfort food – what can I fix that’s quick? Bread pudding: one of these wenches can tear the bread while another beats the eggs and milk; work will cut down the chatter. Dried currants, raisins, peaches: is it nutmeg that Faramir dislikes?
Those worthless girls! Best I tend to it myself. Oh, my poor dears, my poor dear boys.
