Fic: ‘The last word.’  
Title: The last word.
Fandom: Lord of the Rings (movies).
Rating: (G)
Time Period: the Two Towers: While Merry & Pippin are with the Ents.
Summary: Merry tried to sleep!

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

This is another of those moments caught in the back of my mind; I’ve had random parts of dialogue chasing each other around in the back of my mind for the past day or so. So, I decided to write it down!

As a warning, it’s all dialogue; a midnight chat as they were falling asleep and Pippin realised he was worried about something. It was all dialogue in my mind so it fit to write it this way. It’s also a simple bit of fun.

And Pippin had to have the last word!

“Yes Pip?”
“Do y’think we’ll live longer, like Bilbo, now we’re longer?”
A pause. “I don’t think so, Pip. We’re just taller.”
“Are y’sure, Merry? I don’t think I could live a long time like Bilbo.”
“I think we’re just taller, Pip.”
“I think I’m taller.”
“G’night, Pip.”
Yes, Pip?”
“If we do live longer and aren’t just lon---”
“Wouldn’t that be a good thing?”
A thoughtful pause. “Well, that’d be a lot of second breakfasts, Pip.”
“Don’t forget first breakfast, Merry. Or luncheon.”
“G’night, Pip.” And then, mumbled: “I’m taller.”
Moments later, slurrrrrrrrrrrp.
