Until the very End


23. Chapter 23


"They took the little ones" Boromir informs us, "Lie still" I tell him, "Frodo! Where is Frodo?" he asks us "We let Frodo go" Aragorn tells him. "Then you did what I could not. I tried to take the Ring from him" Boromir admits to us, "The Ring is beyond our reach now" I say, "Forgive me. I did not see it. I have failed you all" Boromir says, "No, Boromir, you fought bravely! You have kept your honor" I tell him and go to pull out the arrows but he stops me. "Leave it! It is over. The world of men will fall, and all will come to darkness...and my city to ruin" Boromir says, "I do not know what strength is in my blood, but I swear to you I will not let the White City fall...nor our people fail!" Aragorn promises him. "Our people? Our people" Boromir whispers, he reaches for his sword and I give it to him, helping him clasp it to his chest. "I would have followed you my Brother...my Captain...my King!" Boromir tells Aragorn, "Be at peace, son of Gondor" Aragorn whispers as he kisses Boromir on the brow. I touch my hand to my forehead, than to my lips in respect, I stand up and bow my head at our fallen brother, "They will look for his coming from the White Tower. But he will not return" I whisper.

I take the arrows out of Boromir's body as Aragorn and Legolas pick him up and place him in one of the two boats that are remaining, I place his sword on his body, his shield above his head, and his split horn by his side. We watch from the shore as the boat floats over the falls over Rauros. "Hurry! Frodo and Sam have reached the Eastern shore" Legolas says as he pushes the last boat into the water, Aragorn and I both stay still and say nothing, causing Legolas and Gimli to look at us. "You mean not to follow them" Legolas points out, "Frodo's fate is no longer in our hands" I tell them, "Than is has all been in vain! The Fellowship has failed" Gimli says. I place my hand upon his shoulder as Aragorn does the same to Legolas and takes hold of my hand, "Not if we hold true to each other. We will not abandon Merry and Pippin to torment and death. Not while we have strength left" Aragorn tells them. "Leave all that can be spared behind. We travel light. Let us hunt some Orc!" I say as I run off into the woods with Aragorn behind me, "Yes! Haha!" I hear Gimli shout from behind me as him and Legolas run after us.

Frodo's P.O.V

Sam and I stand upon the top of a hill that over looks Mordor. "Mordor. I hope the others find a safer route" I say to Sam, "Naevys and Strider will look after them" Sam tells me. "I don't suppose we will ever see them again" I say, "We may yet, Mister Frodo. We may" Sam encourages me. I turn and smile at him "Sam, I'm glad you're with me" I tell him, and we both begin our trek towards Mordor.
