It's a Dangerous Business, Walking Into the Old Forest Alone
He had been determined to be the single little hobbit in the village doing something unexpected.
But that tale won't go away... The one about the three troll brothers who roam the forest and share an eye between them. Worn by whoever walks in front when they are out looking for little hobbit-children to eat.
The track stretches strangely straight and bone-white into the evening. Are the trees lining up in front and moving in behind him?
Ahead is that odd stone with a hole in its forehead. He can see the yellow disc of the moon shining through.
