A/N: Based on the Celtic belief that loved ones we lost tend to return to us in the shape of animals and trees. And sometimes when we look with our hearts, we recognize them.
Disclaimer: I do not own the characters, I merely play with them. I will put them back before Tolkien comes to haunt me.

Green eyes looked joyfully up at him and he was pounced on, feeling the sting of small, but sharp claws on his leg as the small animal climbed him like a tree. Once it reached his chest, the purring began and the furball glued itself to him.

The strong vibrations of the kitten’s body filtered through his flesh, touching the heart the animal was resting against and Faramir could not help shivering as he gazed lovingly down into the too-knowing emerald eyes.

People in the court deemed him childish for playing so much with a kitten which was not even a pure breed. The small animal had come to them from the forest, having braved all the dangers of predators, seven city levels of feet which could squash him, hunger, thirst and exhaustion. The kitten’s quest had ended on top of Faramir’s pillow, where he had curled up as if that had always been his home.

Faramir had wanted to take the animal out, but Aragorn had frozen when the kitten had looked at him with laughing green eyes.

“Do not shoo him, Faramir. Rejoice instead, Boromir has returned to us.” The King had said back then.

Faramir had wept.

Awww…. So lovely!
Reminds me the LOTRs fan art from “Sakura”, especially this one:

(remove space in URL to get it work)
(sorry admin, hope I did not break any rules by using a hard link?)

Links are fine with us (as long as they're not to the site with the cut-price pharmaceuticals you're selling), but be aware that the people on the other side do not always appreciate being linked to, especially via deep links. Many people note on this on their sites, so remember to read the small print on the site you're linking to.
We aim to always respect authors'/artists' wishes, so if someone objects to (deep) links, we object to them as well. Breaking the link as you did by adding spaces only hides the referring website; if Jommy wouldn't want to be linked to, it'd still be as wrong, only she wouldn't know about it.
