7. A Question of Greed

“How many, Frodo?” asked Bilbo. His nephew coloured guiltily and looked down at the almost empty plate. Only three jamdrops remained in rather crumbly glory on it: clearly this afternoon’s tea party would be celebrated without any of Daisy Proudfoot’s renowned biscuits. “Nine, I think.” Bilbo snorted. As heedless a ‘tween as his nephew was, he didn’t expect downright lying from him. “I ordered two dozen – and don’t tell me a dragon ate them!” A small fat Hobbit edged out from behind the cider barrel and raised a jam-smeared face to look at Bilbo. “Please, Mr Bilbo – I et twelve.”
