|“When will you leave?” Pippin’s question came out as a half-sob, but he caught himself and struggled to regain his composure. |
“Because I must.”
They didn’t speak of the departure again, but each day thereafter, Pippin kept watch with his heart.
And after a short time had passed, just as before Frodo was unable to creep away without the companionship of his closest kin.
I love this. The pain and the love and all...
Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

|Cathleen, this was so beautifully done, I hardly know where to start. Seamless writing that flows, conversation and actions so natural that you readily believe the reality of the relationship between the two cousins.|
As you promised, bittersweet. A likely gapfiller.
I wish I had time to quote, but really, there'd be so many quotes this review might end up longer than the story.
Author Reply: Lindelea, thank you so much for your kind words! I'm very pleased you found it well-written, and that you enjoyed it. I appreciate your taking the time to encourage me!! *Hugs*

|This was really well done. Pippin's twinges of upcoming grief are beautifully subtle and well-handled. I liked Frodo's relative serenity and the way that the autumn weather mirrored this period in both their lives.|

|Beautiful! So like Pippin, to be able to just know what Frodo was going to do. Great foreshadowing as well, with the conversation about change.|
Author Reply: Thanks so much, Traveller. I think Pip has a very good sense about his cousins and others he is close to. Reminds me of my grandmother! *Grin*

|Yes, so poignant, and so Frodo and Pippin!|
Thanks for this.
