“Call this adventuring?”

Pippin kicked a soggy crate caught up by the ents’ flooding; it sagged woefully at one corner. The hobbit squelched towards the outbuildings of Isenguard before turning for confirmation.

“We’ve been starved since we left Bree... There was Rivendell, I s’pose – that was alright.”

“And Lorien,” interjected Merry.

Well yes... and Lorien... but on the road there haven’t been second breakfasts or teas... and supper is only waybread. Then we’ve been beaten, trussed up, carried by stinking orcs...”

“Pip,” said Merry, gleefully retrieving a package from the woeful crate.

“...Would you like some cheese with that whine?”
