1. Only A Hobbit


Only A Hobbit (A drabble for Aranel Took's third long story, "The Wanderers")

How should he ever live up to the pair of men he was named for? How should he ever follow in the footsteps of a hero and a king?

For Boromir I. had been a king of the edain, the first Lord of Ladros in the First Age – and Boromir II. had been a hero of the Fellowship, who died to save his grandfather from orcs at Amon Hen.

He watched the other recruits, glad for some respite.

Bori clenched his teeth. He might be only a hobbit.

But his grandfather had been a hero.

And he would be, too.
