16. A Thief in the Night

The raven brought news of the coming of Dain. Now Thorin would never be swayed to relent, fearing neither foes nor coming of winter.

Deluding a sleep-craving Bombur, Bilbo ventured down from the mountain under cover of darkness, bearing the Arkenstone to the camp. There he, being after all an honest burglar, gave the Heart of the Mountain - the heart of Thorin - to Bard. To be aid in the bargaining, hope for peaceful agreement. Simple Hobbit, thus gaining the respect of great Elven-king, heir of Lords, and mighty wizard.

And returned to his friends, risking their wrath and fortold unpleasantness.
