The Tempest

Twig turned the stranger over and brushed the brown curls from his face, and gasped. “Oh, no!”

“It’s a Hobbit!” whispered one of the children. “One of the Gatherers and Sharers, do you think?”

Twig shook a close-cropped head. “Oh, no! No, this isn’t one of those!”

The little lass drew closer, the broomstick in her hand lifted to threaten should the rousing Hobbit in Twig’s arms offer any threat. “Him’s awful big!”

But Twig broke into a tempest of tears. “It’s Merry!” Twig wailed. “I almost killed Merry Brandybuck! He’s back, and I hit him with a frying pan!”
