29. The Choices of Master Samwise
"Master Elrond, I wanted to thank you. Mr Frodo would have died without your help."
"That is what I am here for, Master Samwise."
"I also wanted to apologise for my actions. You offered us a place to stay and we are grateful for it. And for everything else you have done for us."
"Think nothing of it. Frodo was ill and you were worried. Now Frodo is awake he will be needing your help."
"Thank you, sir." Sam took his leave and Elrond fondly watched him go, knowing there would be harder things in store for the two hobbits.
