What Not To Wear
As they dived for cover Boromir’s eye was caught by a flash of scarlet fabric dangling from the youngling’s back pocket. Afterwards he berated him: “Didn’t anyone tell you about subtle colors, not wearing frippery in the wild? “
Peregrin bristled. “It’s my handkerchief! My sister made it. Nobody ever said anything about handkerchiefs! We’re not warriors; we’re just here for Frodo.”
Boromir felt a quick stab of remorse. Did he not carry small mementos of loved ones?
“Keep it tucked away, then,” he grumbled. “No need for a red flag on your bum; trouble will find us easily enough.”
