The Hobbit, Drabbled

Hobbit, Drabbled, The

12. Inside Information

Third time pays for all! Thus the burglar slips on his ring and enters the dark passage. The red-golden dragon lies dreaming – he won't miss a small cup.

But dragons always know. Belching forth fire, he rises from the mountain, hunting for a thief. All he finds, though, are ponies.

Now seeking information, the burglar sneaks back into the golden hall. Rings, however, don't hide all and the mighty dragon seeks to trap himself a fly.

Instead, Thief Barrel-rider goes and steals the greatest treasure of all.

Swift wings carry the secret to Lake-town, where it will be useful indeed.
