“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!
