For the “Behind” challenge.

The child scurried away, chortling – his favorite game. Startled by the strangers in his garden, he crouched behind a tree to study them: a grey-beard in flowing robes; a scruffy-looking man in well-worn leathers. They spoke quietly, then suddenly burst together into companionable laughter.

“I've found you!” Nurse scooped him into her arms. He struggled, surprising her – he did not want to leave. He liked the sound of that laughter. He wanted to be laughing with them, too.

Years later, when Boromir heard it again, he felt warmed inside, though he did not remember why.
