Catching up!

As twilight faded, Damrod glanced at his companion.  The young captain lay curled beneath a ranger’s cloak, shivering.  It was bitingly cold, but Ithilien still required watching.
Still, it bewildered Damrod that Faramir volunteered for last watch, coldest of all, on such a frigid night.
Stars brightened to the cadence of his captain‘s breathing.  Damrod idly wondered if he dreamed.
The night’s chill deepened, and Faramir grimaced, shivering slightly.
Strange, sudden protectiveness stirred Damrod‘s heart.  He settled beside his captain, nestling the sleeping man beneath the flap of his cloak.
Damrod found himself smiling as Faramir curled closer to him.
