6. The Lake
For Ansostuff for her birthday.
Bilbo and Frodo lazed beneath the trees that grew out over the lake before them. "A beautiful spot!" Bilbo declared.
Frodo smiled. "I think the most beautiful lake I've seen was the one lying between the Argonath and Tol Brandir, although I admit I was far too distracted to fully appreciate it then."
"Did you swim in it?"
Laughing, Frodo answered, "Swim in it? No! But dear Sam almost drowned himself in it, trying to catch up when I started across it in one of the boats from Lórien! I never expected to have to save him as I did!"
