The King smiled often, quite unlike Denethor. Some said it was because of the fair lady at his side. Others said it was because the land was at peace.
Faramir, though, remembered the first time that he had seen Aragorn smile. Then the King had been weary beyond all measure, while victory and his lady’s hand had seemed but a dream and Gondor’s rule still lay with the House of Hurin.
He had smiled when Faramir, son of his arch rival had first opened his eyes and looked into his.
Faramir‘s heart was won. This was the rightful King!
