Pippin halted so suddenly in the doorway between the parlor and the hallway that Pearl collided with him, and nearly sent both of them tumbling to the floor in a heap. “What's gotten into you?” she demanded, but stopped short herself, seeing him blinking back tears. “Goodness, Pippin, what's the matter?”
“Merry's nearly here,” he said. “Don't you hear the horn calling?”
She did hear it, clear and loud enough to reach them even indoors. Merry did love announcing himself so.
“It reminds me of Minas Tirith,” Pippin said, turning away. “And Rohan coming just in the nick of time.”
