Notes: Playing catch up to my own challenges… *shakes head*

He’d balled his fists, ready to strike... but the attack from the advancing hobbits never came, only a proffered snowball.

“Want to join us – we’re fighting them Downhills. Look, here’s our treasure – winners take all!

Young Frodo sighed with relief. Aware he was a visiting incomer and curiosity, orphaned by parents who’d drowned… ‘drowned, mark you!’… a hand of friendship was much appreciated, even snow-covered! He nodded.

“Good on! Got something to add?” The bundled-up hobbit-lad indicated the gang’s ‘treasure’.

Frodo searched his coat-pockets, finding a ball of string. “Will this do?”

The gang cheered... then all hallooed to battle!
