Boromir scowled as he picked up the sickle. “This isn’t fair!” he complained. “Why should we work during our holiday?”
Faramir shrugged. “I enjoy helping Uncle Imrahil with the harvest,” he said.
“I am a soldier and heir to the White Rod,” said Boromir. “It is demeaning to be expected to do farm labour. Why aren’t you angry too, Faramir?”
Faramir laughed. “When the war is over, Gondor will need farmers. As I am not born to rule, maybe I shall buy some land and farm it.”
Boromir shook his head. Much as he loved his brother, Faramir baffled him.
