“What would I know about Fatty Bolger?! What do you think I’d know about Fatty, Meriadoc Brandybuck!” Twig slugged him hard in the shoulder.
“But----” Merry stopped, his eyes growing large. “Estella? Estella, is that you? But I just didn’t recognize you!”
“Why’s him calling you by a lass’s name, Twig?” asked the little lad, tugging at Twig’s sleeve.
Merry laughed. “Because your Twig has successfully confused everyone for some time! Oh, Stell—wait until Frodo hears how you hit me with that skillet! And you’ve been hiding successfully by pretending to be a lad?”
He kissed her!
