Faramir carefully opened the chest, hesitating before he unwrapped its contents. He lifted the cloak and held it in his arms with something like reverence.

 

Sometimes he fancied he could still smell his mother’s perfume on the soft blue folds, which remained unfaded, and untouched by moth, even after three long decades.

 

If only she could have remained by his side! Alas, his mother was as far away as the stars adorning the robe’s throat and hem.

 

He had met another lady, fair as the stars but closer, worthy of this mantle.

 

Faramir smiled. Surely Finduilas would have blessed him.
