Transactions challenge, Buy - The Westfarthing

As usual, I'm late and catching up - but I have written all four prompts in one go this afternoon, so here I go to post them! These drabbles are going to follow Bilbo on his journey, after the events of A Long-Expected Party, from Bag End to Rivendell...

The Westfarthing

Beneath the stars, Hobbit and three Dwarves cross a meadow; dew-damp grass cool on Bilbo's bare feet. Before long the Party Field's lights and noise die away. Bilbo hops lightly across a stile, leans on the fence while his companions clamber over it, and heaves a contented sigh.

“No regrets, old friend?” Dori enquires, puffing slightly. The Hobbit's eyes twinkle.

“I thought, for a moment there, that I could never leave – well, everything. Dear old Bag End, and Frodo, and... Yet I feel lighter, and happier, than I've done for years. It's been dearly bought, but – I have my freedom.”
