Life Sentence

Beregond had not imagined that the task would be so difficult.

“We…must…leave...the …City? But why?”

“I broke the law by shedding blood within the Citadel. The sentence was exile, but in his mercy, the King bid me serve for life in Ithilien.”

“It’s not fair! You did it to save Captain Faramir! Couldn’t he explain what happened, and then we wouldn’t have to …” The sound of his son’s strangled sob nearly broke Beregond’s heart.

“It may not be fair, but it is just. We are King’s men now, and what our true liege commands, we are sworn to obey.”
