Resolute challenge: 'Diplomatic Mission' : Kortirion

Title: Diplomatic Mission
Author: Kortirion
Character: Faramir
Rating: G
Source: Middle-earth
Disclaimer: Tolkien’s creation... Kortirion’s musing.

I must be resolute... must be bold...
The diplomacy lessons rang through Faramir’s memory
“...present yourself confidently...”
His footfalls thudded firmly into exotically patterned rugs.
“...but do not appear overweening.”
Faramir tried to relax his shoulders; he attempted a pleasant smile.
I must be resolute... bold...

Haradric-style studded leathers glinted on the seated figure at the window.

“Amah – now I’m nine, I think I should stay up later.”

She turned, considered, nodded...

“I would concede that.”

Elated, Faramir’s words tumbled forth.

“And can I have a dagger like Boromir’s?”

“No!”

“...oh.”

Maybe a bit too bold... thought Faramir ruefully.
