Darkening Days



The characters are the property of the Tolkien estate.



With thanks to Raksha



One by one, death claimed our friends. First, Éomer and the Hobbits, now Faramir.



Each death seemed to diminish Estel a little, especially Faramir’s.



They were so alike, kindred souls, the last of Númenor.



I saw our Steward, once so vigorous and hearty, slowly fading, until the Doom of Men overcame him.



“I hope I shall depart with the same accepting grace,” my husband tells me, weeping anguished tears. “I too, am growing old.”



Foreboding fills my heart, knowing that Estel must one day follow him. I shall taste the bitterness of mortality with him. Slowly, the days grow darker.



A/N


Faramir died in year 82 of the Fourth Age. Aragorn lived for another 38 years.
