Bird Song

            “Try again,” Faramir urged.

            Boromir scowled. “This is ridiculous,” he groused. “If someone sees me, they’ll know I want to talk to you.”

            “Not necessarily. Besides that, you could give away our position with your shouting. You don’t want that, do you?” Faramir raised an eyebrow.

            “Most definitely not,” Boromir conceded.

            “Well, then, you’ll have to learn the code. Now try again.”

            “As you wish, little brother.” Boromir dutifully took a deep breath and puckered his lips. The ear-splitting shriek that followed had Faramir quickly covering his ears.

            “What was that supposed to be?”

            “Screech owl,” Boromir smirked.
