Early Morning Lesson

The windows are slits of coloured glass in the library wall; tinted light reflects off dust particles between the oak beams...as they move in and out of shadow.

Faramir feels his eyes drift upwards.

Each beam a tree...must have cut down a forest to make that ceiling...

“Faramir?” Gandalf says gently. Faramir blushes; annoyed with himself...his lessons with Gandalf are among the highlights of his year.

Gandalf looks at his student - hair in tangles, bits of vegetation here and there...has he spent the night outside?
He smells of sweat and grass and bewilderment...a young smell in an ancient room.
