    Summary

    “It is one thing to know that your child will grow up and fall in love with the one that shares their mark and an entirely different thing to see the proof before your eyes; proof that your child will not only lead a different life from you, but be taken from you by someone who you may never get the chance to know…”

    -From the personal journal of Belladonna Baggins

    Billa Baggins had grown up knowing that she was different, and it was not simply because of the fact that she was a Took-Baggins. While that was a partial factor to her strangeness, what was more definite was her flowering on the back of her left ear. Unlike other Hobbit flowerings that marked out the name of their soul mates, Billa’s flower was in a different language that was clearly not Hobbitish, with rough runes that were slightly warm to the touch.
    Everyone in the Shire knew that Billa was not ever going to marry another respectable hobbit.

    Summary

    She picks up one of the chess pieces and fingers it fondly. “I must admit, I had a bit of a hot head in those days. I believe I told everyone that they probably couldn’t win if they played against me anyway - that the logic was much too complex for them. But if they did dare, I’d go easy on them.”
    “And what happened,” Mildred rests an elbow on the table and leans closer, intrigued.
    “Well, this girl I hardly knew, who never spoke except for in class, but who always got top marks, sat down across the table and informed me that so long as I explained the rules to her, there was no need to go easy.”
    “Miss Hardbroom?!”
    “That’s the one,” says Pippa grinning at the memory.

    ****

    Mildred suffers a heartbreaking loss, but as she grows up she discovers that family comes in all forms.
