Disclaimer: Tolkien too had a country childhood!
“It’s only right Merry, we should share.”
Young Merry eyed his cousin’s earnest face, not a flicker of guile hid behind that bright smile... and you’d have to have a very hard heart to refuse those fluttering eyelashes... That hobbit was going to be such a tart when he grew up!
Merry sighed – they were best friends, he was his cousin… Fortune had smiled generously on him in this matter, but it would be an act of kindness...
“You’re right Pip, charity should begin at home”
So sweet, generous Charity Bracegirdle did just that... first with one, then the other!
