On Your Guard
“Pull on your gloves and cover any naked skin,” he instructed firmly.
Samwise shook his head, looking at the sea of grass surrounding them with a baleful stare. “Not only are the midges trying to make a meal of us, Mister Frodo, but even the very plants are trying to draw blood.”
A yelp of pain sounded from behind them followed by a muffled laugh.
“Don’t laugh, Merry. The grass cuts like a blade.”
“On your guard, Pip.”
Aragorn, watching the younger hobbits practice sword skills with the sawgrass shook his head and laughed, his cares temporarily melted away.
