Frodo tried to duck past, but his father had eyes in the back of his head, seemingly.

"Come here, Frodo-lad."

Feet dragging, he did.

"You've been fighting."

"Yes, sir. Some lads called Frodo of the Ring a yellow-bellied coward," he said hotly.

"Did they now? And whyfore?"

"'Cause he didn't fight in the Battle of Bywater."

"No more Mr. Frodo did.”

“But Sam-dad…”

“Hush.” A warm hand settled on his shoulder. “I’ll not scold you, for you’ve a quick temper like me. But never forget, Frodo-lad, that sometimes it takes the greatest courage of all not to strike a blow."
