Times challenge - a Moment - 'A Momentary Slip' : Kortirion

Title: A Momentary Slip
Author: Kortirion
Character: Boromir
Rating: G
Source: FotR movie!verse
Disclaimer: Tolkien inspired it, but PJ put it on screen
Notes: Since I missed ‘at the same time’ – this one covers both!

It took but a moment; Boromir stared from where he stood, rooted, blade in hand - straight into the eyes of his demise. Dark eyes, dreadful eyes, full of wicked promise... Boromir’s throat dried, he swallowed convulsively... and a barb pierced his heart as quick and clean as any arrow shot.

At the same time, his adversary looked into the man’s eyes, saw pride, fear, grim determination... this would be a duel of wills...

Gaze locked to intense gaze as surely as sea beats to shore; in a single moment Boromir floundered. He gasped aloud, drowning in Aragorn’s deep, un-chartered waters.
