Homophones Challenge - bear/bare: Beorn's Wife, by Himring

Title: Beorn's Wife
Author: Himring
Characters/Pairing: Beorn / Grimbeorn's mother
Rating: PG13
Warnings: sexual reference
Book/Source: The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings
Disclaimer: Beorn and his son Grimbeorn are Tolkien's, so Beorn's wife must be, too.

‘Who ever heard of marrying a bear? It's unheard of!’ they said.
‘Hardly unheard of!’ she answered. ‘After all, Beorn, too, had a mother.’
And so, once again, she went to meet him at the Carrock early of an evening and, after a while, she followed him all the way across his bee-pastures to his wide wooden halls.
‘What's he like then, bare under his bear-skin?’ they asked, when she came visiting, bearing a pot of the best honey they had ever eaten as a guest gift.
But she, unfazed, tossed her braids and laughed.
‘Wouldn't you like to know!’
