Character: Boromir, Aragorn …and a few words from Gandalf

Boromir couldn’t find the Horn of Gondor. He’d looked everywhere, they would be leaving Rivendell shortly and he was getting worried. Also, Gandalf’s persistent questions about his ‘late night map-reading’ with Aragorn - they both vigorously denied everything - made him nervous. Perhaps Gandalf had hidden it... but, Gandalf was so busy Boromir could never speak to him privately.
“Write a note”, suggested Aragorn.
Boromir dutifully composed a request for the horn’s return... that he was sure ’...had only accidentally been tidied away.’
The reply was terse:
“...If you were sleeping in your own bed - you’d know where your bloody horn was!”
