Summery: A single phrase can have a thousand meanings.
A/N: I sat there at my computer, knowing I had to fill something in for the "Brotherly Advice" challenge. Three stories came and went, and none felt right for the challenge. Then, I drabbled. 100 words exactly. For Sar.
"Remember," the elder had laughed, "always kick your feet, and don't panic when you go under. Just keep your head up. I’ll be there to help you."
"I will not forget," The younger had promised, “As long as you are there.”
The advice had served well, as had the swimming lessons, when the last bridge of Osgiliath fell, and safety was left only in flight across the river, grasping to dear brother for security.
And now, the advice proved once more true, as did the promise, as tears drowned gray eyes, and longing memory was the security left to hold.
