Golden

by Sasjah Miller

Before they sent him away, Aragorn took his knife and cut a lock of Boromir's hair.

The broken horn of Gondor was placed in the Halls of the Kings, next to the Orc arrows, still dark with Boromir's blood, proclaiming the valour of he who had died.

The lock of hair lay hidden in their bedroom until Arwen chanced upon it on a cold winter day.

No one, save those two now dearest to him, ever saw the golden threads entwined within the silver gem until he passed from this life willingly, three days and 123 years after Boromir's death.
