Nectar

She only had to think about beginning and there they were.

Silent shadows haunting her footsteps, glimpsed only for a fleeting moment from the corner of an eye.

How did they know?

What secret sense did they possess that always told them?

Perhaps it was the elf-blood in their veins…

So many times they had attempted this, every attempt a failure.

Faramir hung back.

‘She always knows, always catches us! She might be a witch, Boromir!’

But the temptation was too great ever to resist.

Maybe today they’d manage to filch one – even two! – of Mag’s wonderful hot spiced honey-cakes.

Note: Mag the Cook belongs to just_ann_now, whom I hope will forgive me for using her character like this. And I'm quite sure that Mag always did give the boys a cake, just didn't encourage them to steal a hot one which would surely cause indigestion and Nanny would not be at all happy about that.
