(untitled) Lord of the Ring , Frodo/Sam/Rosie
Word count: 164
Prompt: July 5 - Lord of the Rings - Frodo/Sam/Rosie - Home - The smell of home is sweet
The first winter, especially during the anniversary of his wounding, was the worst of Frodo's life. Quite often he simply laid in bed, in pain and feverish, while the rest of the world got on with rebuilding itself for the new Age. Sam fretted over him, unsure of how to best help. Rosie, with her simple woman's knowledge, asked Frodo's friends what his favorite things were, and applied herself to making sure they were around in as much abundance as was possible.
Frodo awoke in the mornings to smells of fresh bread and honey, coffee, and sizzling bacon. The woolen wrap in his writing chair smelled faintly of the White Tree. There were mushrooms in abundance, cooked in many different ways. All the things Frodo found comforting were never far away.
Spring came, and then summer, and then fall. And if Sam was worried about the winter, Frodo smiled and said, “I can always take comfort in the smell of home being so sweet.”
