Summary: Faramir’s leaving is hard on Boromir.

For laurelote whose plot bunny bit me hard!

Faramir checked and rechecked his packs as he prepared to leave for Ithilien to serve with the Rangers.

“Did you pack a warm cloak?” Boromir asked him for the 10th time.

“Yes, Boro,” Not that he would need it, spring and summer, would he be gone.

“What about your thick boots and extra night shirts?” Faramir smiled indulgently, showing him the three Boromir gave him five minutes prior.

“You’ll need your medicine pack; I saw it just over there! Well, it was…” He stopped as Faramir waved it in front of him—5 minutes before the shirts. “Oh,” he said sheepishly.

“Well, I guess that’s it then.” Faramir didn’t miss the catch in Boromir’s voice, as he placed the bags near the bedchamber door.

“That’s it. Why don’t you go on down and join Beregond at the festivities—I’ll be there soon.” Boromir nodded and left, a suspicious gleam in his green eyes.

When he was sure Boromir had gone, he grabbed one of the bags. Reaching inside, he pulled out the stuffed coney and laid it on top of his bed—his favorite toy Boromir had given him when he’d turned five.

Smiling, he left to join the fun.

I wonder how Boromir could live in Minas-Tirith without his beloved little brother, when Faramir was in Itilien? He would have to think of him constantly!
Please write more about brothers’ love. Your stories are amazing!
