12. Green It Shall Stay
"I've been thinking."
He looks up at the sound of her voice.
"The front door."
He raises an eyebrow.
"What about it?"
She shrugs, nonchalance hiding hope.
"It looks a bit shabby. I was thinking I might repaint it."
Bilbo nods, and she continues.
"I thought perhaps blue?"
Bilbo shakes his head vigorously.
"Never! Don't remember what Dad used to say? Green and blue will never do? A blue door would clash terribly with the grass above! No, green it shall stay, even if I have to paint it myself!"
If there are tears, they are of joy.
