Sam had known his master would be awaiting him, for who would ask a hobbit to leave his family unless to give succour to another?
But he had thought no further about what he would find on his arrival; where he might live, nor even how and what he might eat.
His first meal on land was taken in Master Elrond’s home, served by elves, and seemed almost dreamlike.
This new life only began to feel real when Master Frodo led him to the proper hobbit hole (had he expected one or not? He wasn’t sure), and into the kitchen.
