Disclaimer: Written with all respect for J.R.R. Tolkien, his works, and his characters whom I adore. No profit taken. Only love given.
Author's notes: This is a reposting of a drabble I wrote a couple years ago. When I saw the ' Yellow' challenge I couldn't get it out of my mind. Hope this is permissible.
Frodo fought his way to wakefulness. Something was tickling his nose! Something soft. Blinking, he saw a small tuft of yellow feathers. A newborn chick! He heard a quiet chuckle and looked up.
"Wake up, Mr. Frodo," Sam said. "Wake up and see the chicks. Just hatched, they are!"
Frodo sat up and took the chick from Sam's hand. "Fine way to begin my day, sir gardener," he laughed.
Sam kissed him with lips as soft as the chick's down. "Do you know a better way?" He murmured seductively.
Frodo's smile took his breath away. "That I do, dearest Samwise."
