My dear Frodo. You asked me once if I had told you everything there was to know about my adventures. And while I can honestly say I've told you the truth, I may not have told you all of it. You see, it did not start that day when Gandalf first introduced himself to me. It did not start even that year, many many years before actually. It started quite suddenly one day, when I was younger even than you and had but spare thoughts of finding a wife. Until suddenly I was in love with a girl I had known almost all my life, and never had I dreamt of the hold she had always had over my heart. As you know I was married, I still feel that I am though she is with me no longer. I regret greatly you were never graced with meeting her, she was by far the loveliest hobbit in all of Hobbiton. Perhaps even all the Shire, though I must confess I am more than a little biased.
Primrose Smallburrow, a name as lovely as she. So kind was she not even Thorin Oakenshield could offer ill word, and that my dear boy is a feat I have seen no other do. And he was in her presence no more than a few hours! A splendid feat, a superb victory mind you for Thorin was a very sullen dwarf though I suppose he had enough cause. Had it not been for her I rightly believe I never would have partaken in Thorin's quest. I had not the bravery nor the belief that I could follow after them, but she believed in me and that was all I needed. I must admit, it was all I would come to face in helping Thorin reclaim his home that gave me the courage to profess my love. And it was her sweet face that would call me home the long days I was away.
It has taken me many years to realize she was my first adventure. And I can tell you honestly, with a heart unriddled by doubt, that she was and always will be the greatest adventure to which I ever embarked.
So this is an idea I had, and it will be a Bilbo OC story. I suppose mostly this story will be pure fluff, and adorableness cause it's Bilbo and he's adorable. And I won't actually go into the details of his time with Thorin's Company, I might do a chapter where it's split between her and him and show that they miss each other. But next chapter will be the actual start of the story, and I'm very excited to introduce my OC. If a lot of people review I have been known to undate everyday. So please tell me if you are interested. Thank you very much for reading.
