# 61 - A Gift
It was a great gift; one he had never even dreamt might be possible. Yet, Lord Elrond had gifted it to him when Elessar had given him the Princedom of Ithilien. He still shivered when he thought upon ‘that’ gift. None needed to tell him the significance of Elessar’s gift: he was now the greatest noble after Dol Amroth in the revived Númenórean state of Gondor. He did not want it; but that also was a gift. Not to be declined.
Faramir held the bow in his hand, softly, gently, as if he held a babe. Beleg’s bow. He wept.
