Seeing Red

By lindahoyland

Humor

Seeing Red

These characters all belong to the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien. This story was written for pleasure and not for financial gain.

With grateful thanks to Raksha for her help,

Seeing Red

Faramir wept bitterly, tears pouring from his blue eyes.

"Stop crying, boy, or I'll beat you again!" Denethor said harshly.

"I'm crying because you don't love me, daddy!"

"It is unlikely I even am your father - you have red hair!" Denethor roared.

"Could the renowned Captain Thorongil be my daddy then?" Faramir asked hopefully, dodging a blow from the enraged Steward's hand.

"Impossible!" Denethor snapped. "The scoundrel left before you were begotten. He was dark too."

Faramir looked disappointed, then cheered up as a new thought struck him.

"Boromir does not have dark hair either," he remarked.

Denethor exploded.

A/N This is of course, Movieverse and AU and has no connection to my other stories about Faramir.

I plead guilty to having written weepy Faramir.

I do know of people with red hair born to dark haired parents in real life, so Denethor is being unreasonable.

JulieJeanette: I'm only on chapter nine, but so far I am loving this story!. I am on pins and needles hoping that they find good men in their lives by the end.

M.Jones: Its rare i come across stories with women relationships and its rather realistic, but at the same time its as a fantasy in terms of a shinning knight and a princess type style.

Jennifer Kane Martin: I am a high school teacher, and the dialogue and inner thoughts are PERFECT. However, the lack of capitalization, punctuation, and the typos are distracting. Don't let these get in the way of a potentially good story.
