    Summary

    "You're a good lass, Flora. I'm very selfish, you know. Yes, I am. Very selfish. I don't know why I took you in after your mother and father died but it wasn't out of charity. I think it was because... of all my numerous relations, you were the one Baggins that showed real spirit."

    On the eve of Miss Bilbo Baggins' eleventy-first birthday, a certain dark-haired, blue-eyed hobbit is hinted at a hitherto unknown tragedy that occurred during Bilbo's return to the Shire that involved a certain King Under the Mountain and may have played a part in Bilbo's adoption of an orphaned Flora Baggins over thirty years later. Unfortunately, Bilbo makes her speech and disappears before Flora can inquire any further, and a few months later Flora leaves the Shire for Bree, along with her two vegetable-stealing cousins, tomboy Merriadac "Merry" Brandybuck and Peregrin "Pippin" Took, and her loyal friend Rose Gamgee.

    Lately, however; she's begun wondering if "Friend" is too weak a word to describe the affection she feels towards her quiet, unassuming gardener.
