“Family life has worked marvels for my son,” Ecthelion remarked to his favourite Captain. The two sat together on a bench in the Citadel gardens enjoying the spring sunshine.

On the greensward opposite, Denethor was playing with his toddler son, smiling broadly at Boromir’s babyish prattle, tenderly picking him up when he stumbled, and carrying the child when his little legs tired of walking.

Thorongil regarded his the other man somewhat wistfully, wondering if such joy would ever be his. It seemed the Steward’s haughty heir had a heart after all. For all his faults, Denethor was a wonderful father.
