Anborn learns something of his Captain
Pattering raindrops woke him. Anborn found the others asleep, save one. The Captain sat watching the pouring rain.
Before he thought of aught to say, Faramir glanced at him. Shamed by his own silence, Anborn looked outside. Wind whipped the branches, raindrops drenched the earth, water streamed down the trees. “A storm, sir?”
Faramir shook his head, his eyes calm. The rain-song drummed on, strangely peaceful. “No. The return of spring.”
Faramir offered a small smile to Anborn’s surprised glance, gazing again at the rain. Sitting by his Captain, watching spring pour down to Ithilien, Anborn found himself smiling, too.
A/N: Because I think it is not really important, but nice to know: Faramir became a Captain about six months ago. Anborn joined the rangers about two months ago.
