12. Echo

“They have a cave troll!” Boromir looked up from his history book at Faramir’s panicked hiss. His little brother was desperately trying to block the door to the study with a heavy wooden end table. “Who has a cave troll?” he asked, amused. “The Haradrim!” Faramir replied, as if this should be perfectly obvious. “The Haradrim,” Boromir repeated, skeptical but grinning. “Yes.” “Have a cave troll.” “Yes!” Faramir was having no luck getting the end table to move. “They’re almost here -- they were right behind me!” Boromir set down his book and stood. “Then we’d better hurry,” he said, and went to help his brother barricade the door. *** “They have a cave troll.” The moment he spoke the words, Boromir remembered. He smothered the grin that came to his face -- the others would not understand why he was smiling at a time like this. He would tell Faramir of this moment when he saw his brother again, and they would laugh at the memory.
