Aragorn had seen many dark acts in his life and heard of many more. But Gandalf’s tidings held a horror quite unique. Denethor had perished on a pyre and sought to immolate his son.
Faramir’s body was unscathed by flame, but his spirit was enmeshed in darkness, a gloom, which Aragorn feared might now be too thick to penetrate.
Determinedly he sought the young man, reaching out to him in the smouldering ruins of his world, seeking to overcome the fever that threatened to consume him.Then Faramir awoke and smiled at him. The Phoenix had risen from the ashes.
