Safe harbour

In the dream, Boromir is alive and whole and golden almost beyond bearing. Up to his knees in water, he laughs at the surrounding jostle of merry paper boats.

‘I knew you would come! Your love was writ large upon every page!’

Elessar steps into the river, into arms that never before held him, tastes the mouth he’s ever hungered for.

‘In a moment I shall awake’ he sighs, ‘and lose you once again.’

Boromir grins and shakes his head,

‘No,’ he whispers. ‘Not this time.’

And Elessar realises with joy that from this dream there will be no awakening.
