In the Dark: A Mystery Story by December
One night, Steward Faramir wakes up with a jolt to find himself tied to his own bed: blindfolded, gagged, naked and – oh, Valar! – in the company of another man. Faramir’s initial indignation and anger are soon replaced by fear, once he understands this is no silly joke and the stranger has quite serious purposes – and Faramir can neither free himself nor call for help. However, once he stops struggling, he realises his guest has no intention of hurting him, and is in fact being rather gentle and patient. So, given his lack of options, Faramir cooperates, and actually quite enjoys himself…
But he has not an inkling who his lover is – even when the scarf from his mouth is removed to let them kiss and he begs for a name, the stranger gives no reply. Faramir cannot even tell whether it is Man or Elf. He has a smooth face, but so do many Men in Minas Tirith (now, let us assume that Aragorn, since Professor T had never said otherwise, does shave at least once in a while – so technically it could be him also).
Faramir never gets another visit – but has to admit that he would actually like to. So here is the mystery part: he wants to find out who it was he had shared his bed with, and ask him some questions and possibly, well, do some things.
I would like there to be some good suspense, preferably three likely candidates, each with some points in favour of him being Faramir’s nightly guest – please keep us guessing until the very end. And, well, how things develop after the discovery is up to you.
