6. Down-turvy Days

Rebellion never was grand to hobbits, so Fatty's no disappointments to measure, save one – that it's just as uncomfortable as rumored. Scary's no kind garden: the winds're harsh; summer rains slick the rocks. He's all over bruises and barked shins. And he's hungry – dinner isn't what it should be.

But he's learning. By Lithe, he's his very own storehouse raid to boast of, and Scary's folk eat a little easier.

"You're feather to someone's cap now," Wickle says, handing Fatty a warrant:

BURGLAR FREDEGAR BOLGER
           Fifty pennies.


"Top o' down-turvy," Wickle congratulates him.

"Heaven help us all," Fatty sighs.
