Faramir woke up one night in a cold sweat and when he looked up there he saw his brother Boromir standing at the foot of the bed. He closed his eyes and then reopened them again to clear his imaged. But it did not work for Boromir was still standing there, "This is just a dream for you are not standing there. My fever must have gone up," said Faramir yelling for the healer.

"No one can hear you little brother," said Boromir with a smile.

"Am I dead?" asked Faramir.

"No little brother, you're not dead, for you have so much to finish before you come back to me," said Boromir.

"Then how are you standing here? I saw you lying dead in that boat as you floated passed me," said Faramir.

"Faramir you are very sick and weary. You need to fine the well to live as much as I love you and want you to come with me you have much living to do. You had shown that you are a very good leader, for you're man followed you on that death suicide mission that father had sent you on," said Boromir.

"How did you know that?" asked Faramir.

"I have seen many things my brethren. I know that Father's is dead, and that he remembered that he loved you in the end, just like Gandalf had told you that he would," said Boromir.

"Then you know brethren that I don't have anything to live for? Aragorn has taken his rightful place as the King of Gondor," said Faramir.

"Yes I know this also. He had made a promise to me before I died, that he would not let his city or our people fail. And he stayed true to his word, I would have followed him for he is my brethren, my captain, and my King," said Boromir.

"Yes and there is not reason for me to go on living. For the city is saved and in good hands for their King as returned. And I can come with you my brethren," said Faramir.

"No Faramir you can't, for your time is not now. Aragorn does have a need of your talent my brethren. And then there is also a beautiful young lady who is also needs you," said Boromir.

"Who?" asked Faramir.

"She is right here my brethren, in the "House of Healing" for she was hurt on the battle field and thought to be dead. But Aragorn has saved her also. You both are of broken hearts, she has lost her beloved Uncle on the battle field. And she feels that she is in love with Aragorn, but he is in love with Arwen and she just wants to dead a honorable death. Both you both can help each other heal." said Boromir.

"Well the only person that I remember meeting beside's Aragorn is this little hobbit name Pippin. His cousin was also hurt on the battle field and Aragorn is healing him also. This little hobbit Pippin says that he knows you and he talks about you all the time," said Faramir

Boromir rolled out laughing, "Yes the little one's Pippin and Merry they are very special to me. They maybe little but they have big hearts and brave as any man," said Boromir remembering the two little hobbits that he loved very much..

"Well Pippin has been talking about you and Merry non stop. He tells me how you showed them how to hold a sword and that you carried them through the snow, how you come to help them when they were surrowed by Ocrs and Uruk-hai," said Faramir.

"Yes I had tried to take the ring from Frodo. I was very sorry that I had done that, the ring had taken over my sense and Father had wanted this mighty gift. But it was wrong and when I saw that Pippin and Merry were in trouble I had to save them," said Boromir in a very sad voice remembering his down fall for the ring of power.

"We heard the horn blowing," said Faramir.

"Yes but you would have never gotten there on time, Aragorn did stop the Uruk-hai from putting another arrow in me. But there were many Orcs and Uruk-hai and they had taken the little one's. Aragorn had told me that I had not failed and fought well. I told him that I had tried to take that ring and that I did not see, he forgive me and given me my honor back," said Boromir.

"Boromir I do not have anything to live for and just want to come with you," said Faramir.

Boromir had reached for Faramir hand, "Come with me little brother for I have something to show you," said Boromir.

Faramir took Boromir's hand and followed him as he had always done as a child. He loved his brother and trusted him. Without Boromir, Faramir just did not see much of a life, for Boromir was his life, his strength, and he believed in him when their Father did not. He did not see his life going on without his beloved brother. Faramir was still in deep thought when Boromir had stopped walking. "Look in there," said Boromir with a smile on his face.

Faramir looked into the room that Boromir's finger was pointing in. He saw the most beautiful lady lying there, who is she?" asked Faramir not taking his eyes off her.

"She is Eowyn, shieldmaiden of Rohan. And also Eomer sister who is now the King of Rohan since their Uncle had died on the battle field," said Boromir.

"Well Boromir what makes you think that she wants anything to do with me? You said that she is in love with Aragorn and he is the King of Gondor, and I am nothing but a men of Gondor without any power and then my man had all died. And what makes you think that Aragorn would want the steward's son around for anything," said Faramir.

"Yes you are a men of Gondor and even though you are not the King or the steward you have a very important role to play in the life's of our people. Aragorn will see to that, he is a fair and honorable men Faramir. And the King of Gondor does need you and so does Eowyn and our people. You are loved little brother and have many great talents and you are a wonderful leader. Aragorn is going to need you very much to rebuild our city and if war breaks out again he will need a strong leader," said Boromir.

"Even so Boromir what would the beautiful shieldmaiden of Rohan want with me? And her brother is going to be the next King so she would be the queen. So why would she give that up for a soldier of Gondor?" said Faramir.

"You both have lost people that you love, she wants to just give up and die with her cousin and uncle. She is also sadness by Aragorn because she does or thinks that she loves him. Aragorn is in love with the beautiful Elf Arwen daughter of Elrond of Rivendell. Aragorn pitys her Faramir and she don't need any more pity but you can show her love, she needs you just as much as you need her," said Boromir.

Faramir just stood there looking at this beautiful women. He had truned around to say something to Boromor but he was not there. Instead he was back in his bed and Pippin was there telling him about the beautiful shieldmaiden of Rohan by the name of Eowyn. Pippin was telling Faramir how he thinks that he and Eowyn should get together. Faramir sat up in his bed and looked at Pippin, "Boromir was here, where did he go?" asked Faramir.

"Oh good you are awake. Why are you asking about Boromir? He is not here, it is only me. Let me get Aragorn or the healer for you must be running a fever," said Pippin.

"Wait you were here the whole time and you did not see Boromir? He was standing with me by Eowyn room," said Faramir.

"Faramir you have not been out of the bed. You were just having a dream and talking to Boromir in the dream. The healer said that it would be just the fever," said Pippin.

Faramir smiled and was looking up and then he saw Boromir, "How much Boromir did you have to with Pippin talking about Eowyn?' Faramir said in a whisper.

Boromir just looked at his brother and smile and then he was gone.
