On the Stair

Lightning flashes hits the coiling stair of the library through the skylight, illuminating a small figure.

It isn’t the first time Gandalf has encountered Faramir in the middle of the night.
They both find solace here.

Gandalf joins him. He feels a deep affinity with the boy, despite the time-span that separates their beginnings; with the ancient dreams that haunt him...and his artless eccentricity.
Faramir has wrapped himself in a cloak and wears boots; both too big.
Boromir’s probably.

Gandalf looks up. Another burst of lightning falls...past centuries of paper and vellum, and down the long stairwell of his memories.
