Until the very End


4. Chapter 4


The party was in full swing, everyone was having a great time. Merry music was playing and Gandalf was setting off his fireworks. I was dancing with Frodo when I saw Samwise Gamgee looking at Rosie Cotton, "Go on Sam. Ask Rosie for a dance" I tell him as I walk over and sit next to him on the bench. Sam starts to look nervous "Ah, I think I'll just have another ale" he tells me and starts to get up "Oh no you don't" Frodo says as he comes over and grabs hold of Sam's shoulder's, "Go on" I encourage him as Frodo pushes him into Rosie's path. We both sit and watch as Sam awkwardly dances with her. Suddenly a firework takes off into the night sky, everyone stops what they are doing and gasp at the sight. It lights up the sky and a dragon's face develops, it flies back down towards us. "Bilbo! Bilbo!" I shout out his name as everyone hides for cover and his back is towards the dragon, "Watch out for the dragon!" I say as I get closer to him "Dragon! Nonsense, there hasn't been a dragon in these parts for a thousand years" Bilbo says as I manage to pull him to the ground with me, just as the firework goes over us. I stand up and watch it fly over the lake only for it to explode, the Hobbits gasp and cheer at the show. I walk over to the cart to see Merry Brandybuck and Pippin Took standing there with soot covering them and their hair standing on end "Let's get another one" Pippin suggests and Merry nods his head in approval. I walk up behind them and grab an ear of each Hobbit, they groan and look up at me "Meriadoc Brandybuck and Peregin Took! I might have known" came Gandalf's voice from behind us. Gandalf sets them to work by cleaning all of the dishes.

"Speech Bilbo!" the crowd cries out and Bilbo hops up on top of a barrel in front of the crowd, "My dear Bagginses and Boffins, Tooks and Brandybucks, Grubbs, Chubbs, Hornblowers, Bulgers, Bracegirdles, and Proudfeets" Bilbo calls out all the Hobbits last names to which they would cheer to. "Today is my 111th birthday!"  Bilbo says and we all cheer and raise our glasses and shout 'Happy birthday', "Alas, eleventy-one years is far too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable hobbits. I don't know half of you half as well as I should like and I like less than half of you, half as well as you deserve" Bilbo tells us and a silence falls upon the crowd. "I, er" he mumbles and reaches into his pocket "I have things to do" he says and pulls out his hand, putting it behind his back. "I've put this off for far too long. I regret to announce This is the End. I'm going now. I bid you all a very fond farewell. Goodbye" Bilbo says and disappears before our eyes. The Hobbits gasp and look around for him, I turn my head to where Gandalf is sitting and he nods his head at me, I nod back and get up, running all the way to Bilbo's hobbit hole.
