Faramir wept bitterly, tears pouring from his blue eyes.
“Stop crying, boy, or I’ll beat you again!” Denethor said harshly.
“I’m crying because you don’t love me, daddy!”
“It is unlikely I even am your father - you have red hair!” Denethor roared.
“Could the renowned Captain Thorongil be my daddy then?” Faramir asked hopefully, dodging a blow from the enraged Steward’s hand.
“Impossible!” Denethor snapped. “The scoundrel left before you were begotten. He was dark too.”
Faramir looked disappointed, then cheered up as a new thought struck him.
”Boromir does not have dark hair either,” he remarked.
This is of course,Movieverse and has no connection to my other stories about Faramir.
