Note: AU. Boromir is still in Lothlorien.
At Caras Caladhon
Boromir entered the open gates and walked into the not unwelcoming emptiness...teeming with life that had been.
He stopped at the foot of the great mallorn and looked up at the outline of her dwelling, where she had stripped him bare with her gaze, making his defences slip...leaving him feeling belittled and humiliated.
Now, as it unravelled, he saw the true beauty of her forest, in a way he was unable to then. And that mournful insight was perhaps, paradoxically, a gift.
Boromir pulled his cloak around him and turned to leave.
He hoped she’d found peace, wherever she was.
