Disclaimer: All of Middle Earth is from the hand of Tolkien.  I own nothing.  I make no profit from the drabble.

Hills cloaked in verdant, living splendor spread around them.  Ithilien‘s days were short, her nights dark, though daylight bought a momentary respite.
Faramir gazed away, and Boromir could feel him breathe deep, shuddering at her dark, burned scars.
“We are losing, Boromir.  A year, maybe months.  Nothing more.”
Boromir gazed east.  The shadow was always deepest here.  It chilled his heart.  Ithilien would fall first.
Anor’s rays seemed to crown Faramir in fire, a falcon poised above his realm, defiant of all her shadows.
Boromir smiled.  “Aye, brother.  But if any can protect her, it is you.”
Faramir smiled grimly.
