Lure

For weeks the voice in his head had whispered, whispered, until it was all he could hear, all he knew.

Take the ring… It is a gift to the race of men… Make Gondor mighty once more… Take the ring… It is a gift…

But during the past day a different voice had triumphed, one that he adored above all others.

Beloved, I have gone ahead but am waiting for you. Do not be far behind me. Soon we shall be together again.

The lure of Théodred’s promise was stronger than the call of the Ring could ever be.
