Frodo coughed weakly, gasping in the thickened air he tried to shield his face with one hand. His throat itched, assaulted by the fine, whirling grit. Normally sure-footed, he caught his toes on something barely seen and stumbled, cursing feebly through parched lips. He must... have... water...

Streaming eyes, half-blinded by the frenzied billowing clouds, glimpsed a way ahead... water!

He grasped the kitchen pump-handle, working it furiously till the water flowed and he could douse his face.

Sam emerged from the dust storm, carpet-beater in hand.

“Oh sorry, Mr Frodo, I should ‘a warned you it was rug-beating day!”
