Nine had set out, now only three remained. Boromir lay dead beside him, and who knew what fate had befallen the Hobbits?
Aragorn wept. For Boromir, for Gandalf, for the Hobbits, for his hopes and dreams, now as broken as the fellowship. The tears overwhelmed him, falling in a great flood across Boromir’s lifeless features.
Legolas’ and Gimli’s words roused him to his senses. Aragorn released Boromir’s hand and rose to his feet. The time for tears was past. They would consign Boromir to the river; allow the flood to bear him away. Aragorn would fight to save the Hobbits.
