XVIII. Resignation

Standing before the burrow with him in the afternoon, she appeared not as an elemental creature, but merely a lovely little woman, dressed as a Hobbitess, her hair trimmed to hip-length and braided.

In one hand she held a bunch of flowers.

What will I tell my friends? Why must you make me look a fool?

“Hullo, Mother,” she said with a quaint curtsey, offering the bouquet.

What of your children? What will they be like? Will they have wings?

Why can't you be like your brother?

“Hullo, Daughter,” she said, resigned.
