[Filtered: Aragorn and Legolas, viewable to Denethor but Sam doesn't know he's there yet!]
How is it, where you are? The Shire is as it ever is, though I think maybe I could try to escape for a wee holiday. Mr. Frodo probably wouldn't know that I'm gone too long, he's been so busy as of late. Always off wandering, he is. He's always been one for adventures and stories, though.
It's maddening, knowing that Mr. Bilbo has the Ring here, and that there's not a darn thing I can do about it. He has to know it's not good for him, doesn't he? I would think, certainly! I can see it changing him now. He doesn't age, Mr. Bilbo. He's 109 but he looks like he could be 50, still a young hobbit! It never struck me as odd before, just that he was lucky, Mr. Bilbo was.
Miss Elinor, the woman in the other world, saw the movie of Mr. Bilbo's life before everything happened. He was pretty brave, Mr. Bilbo was, but when he took the Ring from that horrid creature...I don't honestly know what he was thinking! I understand now though. The...whatever you call it. The want of it, I guess. I don't really care much for it and just want it GONE, but Mr. Frodo even felt its pull there at the end. Were it not for that wretched Gollum, Mr. Frodo would have been taken by the Ring, too. It's why I can't just go find him and kill the creature, because without him, Mr. Frodo would have been lost forever.
