5. Never Lonely
"Do you ever wish you'd had a little brother to play with, Bilbo?"
He looks up quizzically from his drawing, but she continues- has to know.
"Or a little sister?"
He considers this and for a moment looks so serious- so like her Bungo in miniature…
She raises an eyebrow.
"You're never lonely?"
"But then I remember I have you and Daddy and it goes away."
He turns back to his drawing.
"Anyway, they'd only want to have adventures- nasty horrid things!"
She chuckles and returns to her own drawing.
Nasty horrid things indeed…
