Survival was never part of the plan, but here he is; given another chance at a life he does not want.
You will find nothing, Aragorn, other than an abandoned, ashen wasteland; broken walls where torn and bloody memories hang on rusty spikes. Leave it alone.
Aragorn’s hands on him tighten; a grip of frustration and despair, no longer a gentle healer’s touch.
And that breaks Faramir’s walls...
His mind is caressed by another’s moving in silently; leaving pools of moonlight in dark corners.
And gently other memories are reawakened: of distant rainbows, shimmering dew and meadow grass...
