No one saw a son of Denethor cry. Not even Boromir.
Yet somehow he knew why he ran tonight.
Sure enough, wide, red-streaked eyes snapped upwards when he entered. His brother’s wordless glance shuddered with star-lit tears.
Even from him, Faramir recoiled, ashamed, flashing stars branded in stinging trails across his cheeks.
Uncaring, Boromir caught him, pulled him close, burying Faramir’s head against his shoulder.
A soft sob gasped in Faramir‘s throat, then he was silent.
Night drifted, stars turning slowly overhead, and still Boromir held him, shielding his brother’s secret tears from sight, till exhaustion finally stilled his shaking.
