True She-wolf Werewolf: Howdy y'all. We're back in business. So after how long this has taken some things have changed. Nothing major, just that I swapped schools so it is harder for Miss_Movie_Girl and I to collaborate. Anyways. This chapter will be fun.

Thorin: You would think that, insane thing that you are.

True She-wolf Werewolf: *growls* I am not a thing.

Bilbo: *appears* Hey. Let him be. He is rather dense at times. And on with the chapter! *runs from the growling werewolf, dragging Thorin with him*

Disclaimer: Yeah, yeah. We don't own this. Though the OCs are ours. Touch them and ya may die…

Chapter 11: Even More Trouble with Trolls

The trolls had managed to tie up some of the dwarves on a spit and were being roasted over a fire. The others, including Bilbo, were tied up in sacks nearby. How were they going to get out of there alive? Then suddenly Bilbo overheard Tom saying, "We ain't got all night! Dawn ain't far away, so let's get a move on. I don't fancy being turned to stone."

Bilbo suddenly had an idea, a wonderful idea. An idea that could save him and his fellow dwarves. "Wait! You are making…a terrible mistake." He blurted out. The trolls turned to face him as he hopped over. "Um, I meant with uh, the uh, the seasoning."

"What about the seasoning?" Bert asked.

"Well have you smelt them? You're going to need something stronger than sage before you plate this lot up." He says and the dwarves begin to yell at him. The trolls decided to ask him what he knew about cooking dwarf. "The secret is…tooo skin them first!"

"What a load of rubbish!" exclaimed Tom.

"'e's right! Nothing wrong with with a bit of raw dwarf! Nice and crunchy." William says before he grabs Bombur, having him upside and slowly brings him to his mouth.

"Not that one! He—He's infected!" Bilbo shouts quickly. "He's got worms in his…tubes."

William drops him in disgust and Bilbo continues. "In fact they all have, they're infested with parasites. It's a terrible business; I wouldn't risk it, I really wouldn't."

The dwarves yell at him again. The loudest being Kili. "We don't have parasites! You have parasites!" Then suddenly, Thorin understands what Bilbo had been trying to do this whole time. He kicks a few of them and then /they/ get the plan.

"I've got parasites as big as my arm." Oin says.

"Mine are the biggest parasites, I've got HUGE parasites!" Kili shouts. Then all the other dwarves start yelling about their "parasites".

What would you have us do then? Let 'em all go?" Tom asked, not happy with this at all. "You think I don't know what you're up to?"

Then, from out of nowhere, Gandalf steps out into view, his staff in his hand as he stands on a large rock. "The dawn will take you all!" he says. And with that he strikes the rock with his staff, splitting the rock in half. As soon as the sunlight is exposed, the trolls slowly start turning into stone. The dwarves cheer and soon everyone gets each other untied or removed from the sacks.

It was now morning and time to move on. What was funny is how all four of the girls had slept through all the commotion that went during the night.

"Oh, hey, where did you run off to last night?" Megan asked as Bilbo gently woke her up.

"Um…nothing really. No need to worry." He answered her a bit too quickly.

"Aw come on, just tell me. Please?" she smiled sweetly, curious to know what her Hobbit friend was doing last night.

"Alright, well, long story short, we ran into some trolls."

"Trolls!? Really?"

"Yes. If it wasn't for Gandalf, we all would have been dinner."

"Well I'm glad that he came back. Be a shame if I lost my buddy out there." She smiled, patting his shoulder. He smiled a bit too.

Thorin walked up to Gandalf. "Where did you go to, if I may ask?"

"To look ahead." Gandalf answered.

"What brought you back?"

"Looking behind. Nasty business. Still, they are all in one piece."

"No thanks to your burglar."

"He had the nous to play for time. None of the rest of you thought of that." Thorin wanted to roll his eyes, but he kept silent.

Sara and Emma were happy to see Kili and Fili back safely. The two girls rushed up to them with big grins on their faces and the guys explained what had happened during the night. As for Audrey, well, she didn't really have much to say. She simply stayed quiet.

Bofur grinned at her from her. "Did ya miss me lassie?" he winked at her. All she did was roll her eyes.

True She-wolf Werewolf: Well that was the that chapter. We are finally nearing one of my characters! FINALLY! Any ways. We love reviews so please give them. And any flames will be used to roast the dwarves.
