His breathing was shallow; at least to begin with ...it was eerie how it matched his mother’s wavering breaths - the Lady Finduilas was exhausted from so long a labour – a difficult first birth. Then, as she drowsed into strange premonitions… he let out a great cry to announce his coming.

He struggled under the midwife’s hands, slippery with bodily fluids, eager to kick free so it seemed, but when laid against his mother’s breast, he calmed, wrapping his fingers about a stray lock of golden hair, content to love and be loved after his long fight into this world.

-----------------------------------------------------

His breathing was shallow; at least to begin with ...he struggled to control his wavering breaths – though his little brother’s quiet sobs were easily heard. Lady Finduilas, carried solemnly on a bier, preceded them… He could bear it no longer; as he ran he let out a great cry to announce his coming.

He struggled under the amah’s hands, slippery with bodily fluids, eager to kick free as she held his tear-stained face. Eventually he calmed, wrapping his fingers about a stray lock of golden hair, briefly content to love and be loved after the long fight with his world.

-------------------------------------------------------

His breathing was shallow; at least to begin with ...under the caresses of his new-found lover, those skin-tingling attentions that they both yearned for, his breathing soon took on a more urgent pace. Skilled hands chaffed him; urgent lips played his soul, until he let out a great cry to announce his coming.

He struggled under Théodred’s possessing hands, slippery with bodily fluids, eager to enjoy every moment of contact; gradually their breathing calmed again. Boromir sighed, wrapping his fingers about a stray lock of golden hair, content to love and be loved after his long fight with this world.

----------------------------------------------------------

His breathing was shallow; at least to begin with ...it was eerie how it seemed to match this strange ranger’s unwavering breaths – face to face, his eyes held... before he fled out into the riven vale, running almost blindly... he let out a great cry to announce his coming.

He struggled under his lover’s familiar hands, slippery with bodily fluids, waking from premonitory dreams, to start wild-eyed and fearful – it had been so real! Théodred calmed him, wrapping his fingers about a stray lock of golden hair, content to love and be loved after their long fight with this world.

---------------------------------------------------------

His breathing was shallow; at least to begin with ...gradually it faded to ragged, drawn-out gasps. He summoned his strength to murmur what might have been said earlier, and heard enough to make his passing easier, but he’d no breath to blow Gondor’s horn, to let out a great cry to announce his coming.

He struggled under his Captain’s sorrowful hands, slippery with bodily fluids, and received his grace. Boromir calmed... in his last, fleeting thoughts... wrapping his fingers about a stray lock of golden hair, content to love and be loved after his long fight in this world.
