Title: I Love You THIS Much!
Characters: Faramir & Boromir (a little of two guards and Captain Thorongil)
Summary: Five-year-old Faramir is on a hunt. And his target is none the wiser.
A pair of blue eyes peeked around the corner, followed by a head of light brown hair.
Five-year-old Faramir was on a hunt.
And his target was none the wiser.
Faramir ran soundlessly down the white steps from the door, past the guards and sneaked towards his target.
The two guards looked at each other, smiled and leaned back. They both wondered if young Faramir would get his target this time.
They waved when Captain Thorongil came striding towards them, unnoticed by both Faramir and the young Gondorian's target.
Thorongil paused as he saw the little one, and with a smile sat down on one of the steps.
Faramir sneaked closer, mindful to stop every few steps and make sure that he did stay quiet.
His target turned a side in the book.
When Faramir was three feet away, he gave a great war-cry as he jumped on his target.
Ten-years-old Boromir was very surprised when he suddenly was attacked… by his little brother!
Boromir heard someone laughing at them as they tumbled around on the grass, his book forgotten.
Faramir smiled brightly at him as they landed side-by-side on the grass, Boromir on his back and Faramir on his stomach.
"And what was that in aid of?" Boromir asked wryly.
Faramir pouted, "You were reading Bo'mir!" he whined, "You promised to play with me today!"
Boromir's face lit up. "I did, didn't I?" he smiled at his brother.
"Is it something you want to tell me Fara'?" he asked as his brother was looking rather nervous.
Both brothers sat up, facing the other.
Both the guards, Thorongil and Boromir almost laughed when Faramir stretched his small arms so wide he could and almost fell on his back.
"I love you THIS much!" he said and hugged Boromir as hard he could.
Boromir smiled brightly at his baby brother as he hugged him back.
One of the guards, Mathias, looked down at his captain where he sat on the steps, watching the two brothers with a longing glance.
"Captain Thorongil? Are you alright?" he asked slowly.
Said captain looked up at him,"Yes Mathias, I'm fine. I was just reminded of…" Thorongil cut himself off and shaked his head.
"Of whom, sir?" Mathias asked, interested.
"My twin brothers who I left at home. They used to sneak up on me too, once upon a moon. They would have liked these two" The Captain said sadly.
Yes he thought to himself, Elladan and Elrohir would have loved these two
Captain Thorongil lifted himself from the steps.
When he looked back, he found the two brothers sound asleep at the grass.
