Micah smiles as at her reply. He was glad that she was finally able to get a good noght's sleep. In a small way it made him feel good that his efforts had aided her.

He jumped, ever so slightly, as the flames burst forth. "It's fine," he assured her eoth a raised hand. "In fact, once you learn to master that skill it could be extremily helpful."

He rummaged theough his pack and got out some food for breakfast. Typically, if it were just him and he were in no hurry, he would take the time to hunt... But with the shire so close and the importance of their current destination he settled for dried meat and hard bread.

Elitariel sat by Micah and went through her own sack. She pulled out a small loaf of bread and a canteen of water. The cub hesitantly moved towards them and ended up between the two, his head laying on the elf's lap. Elitariel pet his head and gave him a few bites of her dried meat. He then scooted over to Micah, and layed his head on his lap.

The elf chuckled and swallowed a piece of bread. Her excitement about reaching the Shire built up inside. After she was finished eating, she stood up and brushed the crumbs from her gown. "Ready to go?"

Micah grabbed his things. "I am indeed," he said with a nod, tossing a small piece of his droed meat down to the little lion.

He put out the fore and covered it woth dirt, then they headed out on the road.

It wasn't long before a small elven city came into view, far beneath the city which sat high up on a rocky cliff, was a road. Some ways down that road was a great bridge that spanned a huge casem with a roaring river running beneath.

That was their path. After the bridge it was only a short hours walk to the boarders of the shire.

Elitariel admired the small elven city. It brought a feeling of nostalgia but also sadness. It reminded her of her own home, which she was no longer welcome. She watched as elven children played in creeks, being watched by their parents from afar.

There was no missing the huge bridge that crossed the great chasm with the roaring river underneath. Being this far away she could still hear the wild river from the deep chasm.

They reached the giant bridge and she stopped before crossing. She looked around and took in her surroundings. "It's wonderful how beautiful these lands are." Taking in a deep breath of the chill air, she walked onto the bridge. The elf leaned over the edge on her elbows and looked far down. The river, now even louder, rushed far, far below.

"I wonder how far down that river is..." She almost felt dizzy looking down that large chasm.

Micah paused with Elitariel. "These lands certainly are beautiful," he agreed. He glanced down woth a shrug at her wondering. He had no idea how far down it was, only that it was a long ways. He had no desire to try and find out really.

Mid day was almost upon them and before long they would be heading into the marshy lands past needlehole. Then, hopefully they could get a wagon to cary them further down towards bucklin.

Elitariel turned around and followed Micah. They walked for a while before the land started to turn into marsh. The trees were lower and there was more water standing around. She also noticed it had a certain stink to it. Meldiron followed close behind on their heels, then accidentally fell into a water hole.

The cub cried and cried as it struggled to swim to the surface. "Meldiron!", she shouted as she turned and rushed towards the lion. Kneeling on the muddy ground, she reached into the hole and pulled out the sopping wet, stinking cub. Elitariel stood back up, mud covering her gown and running down her arms as she held Meldiron. As scared as he was, he held tight to his owner and nuzzled against her. Mud now streaked down her cheek and neck.

Elitariel let out an exasperated sigh, seeing how dirty she was. But she couldn't help but to chuckle at the situation. "You, sir, need to be more careful", she spoke to the cub. Looking to Micah she then said, "I sure hope there's a place that will take a messy girl like me." She playfully smiled.

Micah returned the smile and nodded to their right up top a large hill. It was hard to see at first, but on closer inspection one could see that there was indeed a town. Unlike Elven, dwarven, or even Human cities, the hobbit towns were mostly under ground. Their fences, animals, and well... Everything right down to their joyful old selves barely stuck above the horizon of the hill.

"That's needlehole," Micah told Elitariel. "And I'm sure they are used to travlers with a little mud," he said with a wink. "Fortunately they should also have wagons heading out that we could barter a ride on."

Elitariel gaped at the hill with the hobbit village on it. It was so...different and unique compared to anything other towns she had seen. "Hobbits seem like very welcoming folk!" Through all the mud on her face she cracked a smile. Her pace began to quicken in excitement, anxious to be in this hobbit town.

The hill came closer and closer in their view and she could clearly make out rooftops and chimneys of the hobbit houses. A rattle and clip clops of hoofs came quietly from the trail in front of the two. Elitariel looked at Micah. "You think that is wagon we could take?" She picked some of the dry mud off of Meldiron's head, wanting to make him presentable.

"Many hobbits are welcoming," Micah agreed. "But there are also many who are not fond of strangers."

He looked up to see the wagon rolling slowly down the road behind two stout ponies who seemed to be walking as slow as they possibly could. The hobbit driving them didn't seem to mind, though.

"I don't know," he answered Elitariel's inquiry. "It's best that we stop in at the local Inn and refill our supplies. We can ask there about wagons heading towards Bucklin."

Elitariel nodded and kept at her quickened pace. Eventually they walked past the hobbit and the wagon, the man tipping his hat to the two strangers. "G'evening!", the hobbit greeted, a pipe hanging out the side of his mouth. The two stout ponies whinnied as they continued to carry the wagon in the opposite direction. Elitariel curtsied, almost dropping Meldiron in her excitement that a hobbit spoke to her. Realizing the cub was slipping out of her arm, she hastily adjusted him. Of course he had to thank her with a scowl.

The road continued straight for a bit before veering right. Almost immediately a rather large Inn, considering hobbits size, came into view. There were a number of smaller horses reined onto a fence by the side of the Inn, eating hay spread all over the grass. It seemed a busy place. Many hobbits were going in, and many were stumbling out. Elitariel did a fast brushing of Meldiron to get the last of the mud off of him, forgetting all about the dried mud on her gown and face. She stood very close to Micah, nervous, and whispered, "You go first."

Micah smiled at Elitariel's urging, but obliged. He walked up to the door but stopped just before heading in. He grabbed a cloth from his bag that he had used previously to wrap his bread in. He then pulled out his canteen and dabbed water on the cloth and offered it to Elitariel.

She seemed quite excited and slightly concerned about the mid. He figured she would want her first social meeting with hobbits to be in good presentation.

"Oh!", she exclaimed as Micah handed her the damp cloth, realizing she had forgotten all about her appearance. A slight blush came to her porcelain cheeks as she sheepishly smiled, taking the damp cloth. She had been too worried about Meldiron covered in mud, that she forgot about the mud all over her clothes and skin. Elitariel did a fast touch up. All of the dried mud came off of her skin, but stayed in a few spots on her gown. "Eh, it will have to do.", she shrugged. "I've looked worse."

As she started to hand the cloth back to Micah, a group of drunken hobbits came wobbling out of the Inn, holding mugs and onto each other. The smell of freshly baked food and ale came sweeping over the two along with welcoming music.

Micah took the cloth back and replaced it in his pack. He paused as the drunk hobbits stumbled out and chuckled under his breath at their appearance. He stepped around them and opened the door, motioning for Elitariel to enter. "You look lovely," he assured her. "A little dirt on a gown never hurt anyone."

The blush stayed on Elitariel's face as she hesitantly took her first step into the Inn. She was overwhelmed at her new surroundings, as everything was so different. There was lively music being played on wooden instruments by a small group of hobbits in one corner. Laughter and cheer filled the air. A small fireplace was lit in the center of the Inn, creating a warm, cozy welcoming aura to the two strangers. A couple of obviously drunken hobbits were standing arm in arm on the top of a table, swinging their mugs and singing. A small crowd was gathered around the singing hobbits, clapping and cheering them on.

Elitariel felt welcomed as they walked into the Inn. Some hobbits walked by and lifted their mugs in hello, others nodded their heads. Even though most were hospitable, there was just a small handful than kept their distance from the new strangers, keeping to the dark corners of the Inn. If she didn't feel tall before, she definitely felt taller now. Micah and Elitariel were the only people in their who were not hobbits.

Micah, somewhat caloused to the novelties of seeing a hobit and their culture for the first time, tried to let Elitariel take it all in. It had been so long since he had not known what a hobbit was he could hardly remember the excitement of his first trip to the shire.

He was glad for the hobbits welcoming Inn amd a warm chearful atmosphere. The last Inn was a little drab and everyone needed some chear in their life, even a nomad such as himself.

He thought they may buy a meal before inquiring about a ride towards bucklin, but he figured he would wait on Elitariel.

Elitariel looked back over her shoulder at Micah, grinning. Even Meldiron seemed excited, squirming in the elf's arm and looking all around. She walked up to the bar counter, as nervous as she was, and ordered a simple meal for the two. The hobbit at the bar was more than happy to serve the two strangers. He came back in a few minutes holding a tray with two plates adorned with bread, turkey legs, soup and drinks. Elitariel took the tray and balanced it with her free arm as Meldiron tried to get a bite at a turkey leg.

She found a table for two near a window facing the woods, away from the singing drunk hobbits. They got a lot of stares as they walked to their table, especially the little creature in Elitariel's arm. A few hobbit men actually stopped, dropped their mugs at the sight of a cub, then continued stumbling along. "I feel like we stick out like a sore thumb...", she whispered to Micah.
