“All right, my turn. Riddle me this, then...”

Lily Cotton wandered around the barn, hearing giggles, and found her Rosie lounging in the alfalfa with the youngest Gamgee boy. Both of them were twisting daisies into wreaths, while exchanging riddles. Rosie had just told a particularly difficult one, it seemed. Sam lay with his nose scrunched, staring up at the clouds as he thought.

Chuckling, Lily returned to feeding the chickens. Bell Gamgee was coming to fetch young Sam in a few hours; she would be as pleased (and amused) as Lily was at the prospect of this budding romance.
