Footwear challenge: Boot: View From The Ground

Title: View From The Ground
Author Kortirion
Character: Pippin
Rating: PG
Source: RotK
Disclaimer: Tolkien saw this.

The boot was on the other foot…

It was a phrase Pippin understood, but didn’t use… it just seemed… odd.

He stared ahead, at the pale, naked foot lying in the Pellennor’s churned mud. A very well-cared for foot, nails neatly trimmed. Pip looked at his own feet, which had definitely been neglected of late; nails dirty and broken, curls unkempt, matted.

That’s what you get for not wearing boots to a battle
, he thought.

He glanced at the naked foot, then quickly looked away.

Ah… there’s the other foot, and its boot… attached to the rest of the Eastling…
