Summary: A drabble about habits and young hobbits


In his bed, Sam tossed uncomfortably, drawing pillows and coverlets into his embrace. Though it had been a few years since his older brothers had gone away to their apprenticeships, Sam still sometimes felt the lonesomeness of being alone in bed. He glanced out his small window, that gazed up the Hill; Mr. Frodo and his cousins, being gentlehobbits, they probably was used to a bed all to themselves.

Frodo shifted a bit; it didn't happen as often as it once did, but he had both Merry and Pippin snuggled up to him tonight. It was good to have cousins.
