Bruises
Twack!
“Oww!”
“Sorry!”

That blow will set another bruise blossoming on the Pippin’s forearm: his shoulder and shins are already bedecked with black, blue, green, and yellow. But for every blow that connects, there’s “It’s nothing, let’s go on!”, “No, I didn’t even feel that one!”, “Are you getting tired, Boromir? Perhaps you should rest now, old man?”

His fortitude amazes me. He is little more that a youth, after all; but hidden below the boyish exuberance and curiosity and, yes, carelessness, I sense a deep well of loyalty and courage this little one does not yet know he possesses.
