Chapter Six – The Truth Will Out

“Walda knows nothing, but has sent for one of his soldiers.” Beregond quaffed a tankard of ale.

Walda slurred, “Boromir’s well able to care for himself. Why do you launch such a search, Faramir?”

“He left in secret.” Faramir rubbed his face. “It has been three months.”

“Three months. Perhaps he’s finally found a wench that satisfies him. No one in Edoras ever did.”

“Walda!”

“I’m sorry, Faramir. I’ve been drinking all night,” the soldier whispered. “Listen. One of my men has got him a new woman, from here. He found her two nights ago. She talks too much. She mentioned your brother. Of what they’d do together. Trying to make herself seem important. I’ve sent for him. The fool fell for it, wants to marry her, bring her back to the Mark.” The Marshal stopped. “I’m thirsty. Is this the way you treat your guests?”

“I… Beregond, get another tankard.” Faramir turned back to Walda. “You have not seen Boromir?”

The Captain shook his head, moaning. “What kind of ale is this? It kicks like a mule!”

The door was flung open as Walda slumped in his chair. The innkeeper gestured and a soldier stepped forward.

“I was sent for, Marshal?”

Faramir looked in astonishment. A whore from one of the lower circles stood behind the Rohir.

She gasped, clearly recognizing the Steward’s son, and tried to run from the room, but Beregond was swift and stopped her. The soldier shouted out, but Damrod stayed him.

“I didn’t say nothing.” The woman started to cry. “I didn’t tell no one. Honest. Let me go. I…”

“Be quiet, woman!” Beregond pulled her towards Faramir’s table. “Close your mouth until you’re told to speak.”

“I didn’t do nothing but what I was supposed to do. It was him!”

“It was Boromir?” Faramir’s voice could hardly be heard over Walda’s snoring.

But she heard and fell to the floor. “It was him. I did right by him and he… he goes to hit me.”

“Boromir would never hit a woman!” Faramir kept his trembling voice low. “Leave us.” The woman began to stand up, but Faramir held her shoulder. “Not you. Beregond, take them out. And Walda with you.”

The guard nodded. Faramir saw the questions in his eyes, but could not explain. Would not. For he knew that what he would hear from this woman was more than any man should ever know about his brother.

“Come.” Beregond slung Walda over his shoulder. Mablung held the door open. Damrod pulled the innkeeper out, though the man squawked loudly.

Faramir knelt on the floor next to the woman. “Tell me everything.”

“He comes in all red and shaking. He grabs me and throws me on the bed. He’s not a gentle man, but he’s not been like that before. I was scared but did what I’m supposed to do. I lay on the bed and opened my legs. He took me hard.” She sniffled. “But with him, it was good anyhow. He came, real fast. Faster then he’s ever come afore. I was close, but he screamed.” She wailed. “I didn’t do nothing. Just what’s I was supposed to do.”

“What are you…” Faramir lowered his head, trying to understand what had happened, trying to remember what she had said. His heart clenched. “What did he scream?”

“No. I ain’t saying. He’d kill me if I said. I know he would, he looked that awful.”

“I will protect you. But you must never tell anyone else. Do you understand me?” When she nodded, he once again asked, “What did Boromir scream?”

“Faramir.”

Chapters 2, 3 & 4 are already in the can…. Glad you found this interesting.

It is so fascinating to see angst explored from inside Boromir’s head. Few authors tap into the elder brother’s thoughts and feelings.

Many thanks! I do so love getting into my character’s heads! giggles Rather naughty, don’t you think!

Greedily waiting for chapter 3 and on! Great beginning, love the angsty Boromir. So far you do not betray what Faramir might be thinking on a certain matter, so it’s all doubly intriguing.

Bless you! You know I am such a fan of yours. I cannot believe your tale, ‘Oxygen’ – just blew me away – incredible writing. I am soooo pleased to think something of mine makes you greedy! Again, bless you!

Yey, first to comment on chapter 3! I felt so sorry for Boromir reading this chapter, what with his misery and all, and I so wished something nice would happen to him – and then there’s this ending… Well, what can I say: again, I’m waiting for more, naively hoping something nice would happen to him in the next chapter…

We can only hope that something nice will happen to Boromir and Faramir… both suffering in their own ways. Boromir has been fighting something he cannot see; perhaps this new enemy will clear his head! Thanks ever so much for commenting. Most appreciated.

Great, great, another chapter!
I wonder if Boromir had given it any thought how insane with worry everybody would be made by his disappearance… And I really-really wonder what Faramir would think – and do – if he were to know the truth… And, naturally, I wonder what is going on with the unfortunate heir and his new er… acquaintances.
Glad to have had this update, and of course much looking forward to the next one!

Thanks, December, for continuing to comment… and read… Poor Boromir – honor is of the utmost importance. And Faramir’s honor is to be guarded with his life… which he has now, in his mind, failed miserably.

Oh, poor baby Boromir! I just discovered this story and it is FANTASTIC! :)

— cecilia    Sunday 3 October 2010, 8:57    #

Many thanks, cecilia, I’m enjoying writing this.

Alrighty, finally worked up the courage to read what happens to Boromir…
Er… I probably got one of those shock-resistant minds: it just refuses to fully take in everything that’s happened to him. The magnitude of it just won’t sink in… There’s still this thought that if now he’s treated with care, he’ll come to be just as before – which is obviously not how these things work… I mean, a single dose of what he’d been through can easily leave one messed up for life – and he’d been there, what, weeks? And so many people, too… He must be quite destroyed, although I can see how seeing it all as a deserved punishment would in part help him come to acceptance. And I’m wondering, too, what about… well, the physical side of the healing. The treatment he’d been subjected to is bound to have left his body in a rather irreparable state – what is he going to do about that…? One would think he’s already more than paid his due for putting Faramir’s honour in danger – I wonder if that’s occured to Boromir, too…

Gonna be a long haul on the healing end – but don’t you think Theodred might have what it takes to help our dear man? Wait till Faramir finally finds him, too.

alcardilme    Saturday 22 January 2011, 5:26    #

Yea, Theodred’s a good character: we know hardly anything about him, so really, one can make him into pretty much anybody. And anyway, that talk about healing is purely theoretical for now: I mean, I don’t even know whether you actually do plan for Boromir to get healed ;) What with Boromir being the tragic hero he is, it could go in any direction for all I know :) I just hope that, you know, he won’t have to go through the “axe” thing again…

December    Saturday 22 January 2011, 9:32    #

Hey, darling! How’s it going with this one?
After what poor B’s been through, I’d really love to see him on a happier path :)

December    Monday 11 July 2011, 7:53    #

Woohoohoo, call me cynical, but I’m getting the feeling Theodred’s going to make Boromir’s already somewhat miserable life only the more difficult XD How can Boromir handle so much love now, especially from someone who isn’t Faramir? Because, cleanse you inside out – that means what I think it does, does it…?

December    Saturday 19 November 2011, 9:14    #

More! More!
Also, me enjoy the dialogue :)

My dear, are you well? And… will there be more…?

I have commented on this story before, but now I am more on the edge than ever. I’ll be honest, I had expected a more straightforward development of events at the point where Faramir tracks Boromir down, something about healing, etc.
What I have found instead is more complicated, and more interesting to me, and also what I find to be much more real-life. Many shadowy issues they have, both the brothers. And Theodred… he knows Boromir well. Maybe too well for Boromir’s comfort. I don’t feel Boromir would be thankful to him for speaking to Faramir thus and treating Faramir thus. Especially since this chapter reveals to us that Faramir is still very young. He is spirited, and passionate, and very devoted, but… maybe he’s a bit too young to deal with all of this?
And what is his standing on Boromir’s feelings for him? So far we have heard nothing on this, except that what he has learned has not stayed him from searching for Boromir, and apparently has not cut off his love for his brother. But… I don’t know, I don’t like Theodred doing what he does, even if eventually it will lead to the brothers’ benefit. Boromir has suffered much, and Faramir has endured much worry, and no doubt he will be greatly pained when he learns what depths of suffering Boromir had been subjected to. I guess we could say Faramir too will sustain a mental trauma – and amid all of this, Theodred seducing/taunting him? Come on, Theodred, is this really what the young man needs at the moment?
