Feast-Day with Father

Faramir struggled with his tunic, wishing the feast-day ceremony over so their picnic could begin.

Boromir was not encouraging.  "Father cannot hurry the ceremony, Faramir."

"I wish Mother was here," Faramir sighed.  Boromir nodded, hugging him tightly; it was their first feast-day without her.

"No need for your finery, my sons," announced Denethor, entering unexpectedly.  "We can begin our outing at once."

Faramir cheered as he tore off his tunic.

"Will you not open the festival, Father?" Boromir asked, confused.

"Nay, Boromir.  I gave the responsibility to another; I wished to be free for a more important duty -- picnicking with my sons.  Now, help your brother change..."

"Yes, Father!"
