“What was that…?”

“What was which?”

“There – we heards it again…”

“Oh noes, we didn’… yes we dids – the raspish-rubby sound – that’s trousers that is!

“Sshhhh – we catches it.”

“…And then we eats it?”

“Yesssss – we doessss!”

Bilbo stopped his headlong rush. Slipping into a narrow crevice, he tried to calm his breath from harsh gasps to silence. Thudding feet chased him… and something else… sibilant, muttering – or was it echoes off the dank lake?

Footsteps – nearer! He squeezed… squeezed desperately… his waistcoat buttons rasping against rock – suddenly, he was free!

“Precious – we heard ‘pingpingping’… what goes ping?”

“Something tasty!”
