Drabble: Childhood Dreams (Boromir, Faramir)

My parents are in town so I'm having a nice, fun weekend:o)

If this one works as it's intended, then it fits the tolkien_weekly "the Life Aquatic" challenge...

Childhood Dreams

Sometimes they had times like this; seated together in a quiet tavern, watching the skies dimming over the mountains across the river.

Boromir’s voice is wistful, slowed by sweet wines from far-off vales, "When you were young you wanted to be a river... I was surprised..."

Faramir’s smile is as wistful, "That I wanted to be a river? Strong, tireless, full of life, unstopping till the sea? You wanted to be a horse..."

"A noble beast... I was surprised...," he pauses, "... I thought you’d want to be..."

"I wanted to be you," Faramir replies, "... strong, tireless, full of life, unstopping..."

***

Like I said, I don’t know if this works, and if it doesn’t I’m not sure it’ll fit the challenge, in which case I’ll pull it out.
The brothers wanting to be rivers and horses is from a scene from Strength of a River
