Author's Notes:  For the 'Greed' challenge.  I've never tried writing Gollum before, so feedback much appreciated.


It was my birthday that day, so we took a boat down the river.  Fish darted, silver and gold, in the sparkling water.  Then, I saw it.  A different gold; glinting, shining on the river-bed. He saw it as well.  He wanted my pretty.  A ring it was, golden; shining and glittering in the sun.  A present, for me.  Beautiful – so very beautiful.


“Give us that, my love.  It’s my birthday.” 


Instead, he snatched the ring back – tried to keep it!  So, I took it.  Killed him – I had to.  The ring was mine – my birthday present.  Mine.


My preciousss.
