“But you’re a part of this world! Aren’t you?”
Seriously burst out laughing.
It was often said (in other families) that long ago one of the Took ancestors must have taken a fairy wife. That was, of course, absurd, but certainly there was still something not entirely hobbitlike about them, and once in a while members of the Took-clan would go and have adventures.
“I know it is too late to turn aside. I know there is not much point now in hoping. If I were a knight of Rohan capable of great deeds… but I’m not. I’m a Hobbit. And I know I can’t save Middle-earth. I just want to help my friends. Frodo. Sam. Pippin. More than anything I wish I could see them again.”
