“Yes, Elanorellë?” Sam cast a concerned glance at his eldest as they worked in the kitchen of Bag End together. “You thinking as you’d like to stay to home after all?”

“No, Sam-dad!” Elanor cried, nearly spilling the batter she’d been stirring. “We’re goin’ tomorrow! I couldn’t stay after Uncle Strid— the King, and the Queen invited us special-like.”

“Of course not, sweetling,” Sam replied. “No more’d I ask you to. What is it?”

“You think Uncle Frodo would approve o’ me serving?” she asked, carefully pouring the batter into the waiting cake tin.

Sam nodded firmly. “I do.”
