Oldest And Fatherless



“Well now, come now, Tom’s a-seeing double! Come inside, my starlight friends, and tell me what’s your trouble!”


Elladan gave his brother a long look and tried not to roll his eyes.


“Master Iarwain, we seek news,” Elrohir explained patiently. “Strangers have been seen in the Shire – do you know of them? Have they passed through the Forest?”


“Hoom now, come now, why are you a-fretting? Tom knows all the answers, and outside the sun is setting.” He disappeared indoors.


As they followed him into the low-roofed house Elladan whispered, “You reap what you sow, brother. This was your idea!”
