“It hasn’t snowed like this for a hundred years,” said Merry, looking out a heavily frosted window.
“More that that,” Pippin replied from his overstuffed chair by the fire. “Remember Bilbo’s stories about the Fell Winter? Snowed for weeks. Brandywine frozen, white wolves prowling…. Let’s mull some wine.”
Merry didn’t respond or turn from the window. He’d been strangely quiet since the blizzard had started yesterday.
“There’s plenty of food and wine in your cellars,” Pippin said cheerfully. No response.
“I doubt any wolves could get in…,” Pippin’s voice faltered. “Merry, what’s wrong?”
“Caradhras. Boromir.” said Merry. “Don’t you remember?”
