Courage challenge - 'With Courage' : Kortirion

Title: With Courage
Author: Kortirion
Character: Aragorn
Rating: G… but angsty!
Source: FotR
Disclaimer: Tolkien’s life-long creation… Kortirion’s Saturday morning project.

All his life he’d been called upon to ‘have courage!’ It became second-nature to obey the un-heard whispers in his mind. His mother’s voice, foster-father, brothers... all had murmured words of encouragement, gripped his shoulders... turned him to face his opposition... and sent him forward with a gentle push.

Later, Gandalf gave him considered advice, talked through his options. In the north, Halbarad had been his confidante in sharing fears, inescapable longings...

Then in this Fellowship he had, unlooked for, discovered another.

Not looking beyond the moment, he’d gone forward with courage... now Courage lay broken beneath his bloody hands.
