Five Elements: 2. Boromir: Water

The river moved, but the paddles held them still, and they were quiet; watching the rope as it pulled taut, keeping the other boat close.

They imagined him sleeping, but never had he rested so carelessly, whom peace had deserted months ago.

The dwarf and the elf waited, not knowing what alien custom would signal the release of the rope.

A breath of sound, sigh?, regret?, then the river moved the other boat away. Lightly it lay on the water as if nothing remained except memory.

The boat became a spot in the distance, then vanished. They broke their silence then, to not hear the roar of the waters.

Elena Tiriel's favorite drabbles (vignettes of precisely 100 words), drabble multiples, or drabble series from Tolkien fanfic; a very personal and eclectic list of drabbles at HASA that have touched me in some way. See Inspiring Stories for a list of favorite stories of other types.

Why This Story?

A moving series of drabbles, each unique, about the five elements and how each uniquely epitomizes one of Tolkien's characters.
