Characters: Faramir, Boromir. Faramir's POV
Disclaimer: These characters belong to Tolkien.
When we were young we roamed the bowels of the library, where the coil of rooms filled with rows of books and manuscripts ended.
The last room in the spiral was empty. It was smooth, cone-shaped, and bounced our laughing voices back in playful reverberation
There was another echo-room...
In that room I shared the echoes of your strongest joys and fears and sharpest pain, as you did mine. As long as the echoes remained, life did.
The last time I opened it I found only preserved echoes. Of your voice, your laugh...and of the silence after our final parting.
