4. A Short Cut to Mushrooms

Shades of Darkness haunt their path.

"Don't you leave him!” Sam resolves. Leading through tangled thickets, the shortcut sadly passes the tempting Golden Perch. Rain swept woods give way to open ground; clouds, to sunshine. Lunch, washed down with Elven mead, inspires light-hearted song—‘till harmony shattering, a blood-chilling cry comes wailing down the wind.

Resilient hobbit nature perseveres. Bamfurlong evokes youthful follies; the stouthearted farmer’s tale, disquiet. Recompense is found in beer-filled mugs, winning even Sam’s esteem. Hearty fare and a welcome ride lighten heavy-laden spirits. River mists rise, all-enshrouding, and from a parting gift, the scent of mushrooms.
