March 2006 Birthday Challenge

Elena Tiriel's 2006 Birthday Gifts!

4. Temptation - by Vistula

Hunger gnaws my middle, whispers in my head, just like the circle of gold that sparkles against cousin Frodo’s chest. Apples, it promises. Roast mutton… cheese… bitter ale, as fine as you please… pipeweed by the barrel… How long has it been since we supped, hours? Seems like days… Bread and butter… strawberries and cream… pie Strider doesn’t care, doesn’t know an empty belly’s aching. Men don’t feel hunger like hobbits do… Fowl and stuffing… wine…hot tea… Cold, weary, starved in body and mind, I slide one leaden foot before the other. Claim me Peregrin! You’ll never know hunger again…
