They looked straight at each other. He had really missed looking people in the eye, Pippin thought, fleetingly.
Then both pairs of eyes turned towards their plates – bread, a rather uninspiring piece of cheese, some meat that was, even for a hobbit, difficult to identify.
Daymeal, Bergil had told him this meal was called, taken as the sun went down. Except it had hardly been up today.
Daymeal. If it was to be the last daymeal for either, or both, Pippin wished it more memorable…
He paused. What good is ‘memorable’ if you may have no more days for recollection?
