“Well done, my son, I am so proud of you!” Denethor warmly congratulated Boromir as he and his brother returned from sword practice. “I was told that you won the practise bout today.”
“Thank you, father. Boromir beamed happily. ”Faramir is making good progress too. His sword master praises his skills highly.”
“You are loyal to your brother, Boromir, but he will never measure up to you. Go now, my sons.”
Faramir looked away; choking back the tears as yet again his hunger for his father’s love was left unsatisfied. Much as he loved his brother, he also envied him.
