Tea with Frodo Baggins
Most of us with even a passing interest in Tolkien’s writings know that the Fellowship of the Ring was formed to aid Frodo Baggins on his quest to bear the One Ring to Mount Doom. You might even be able to recite the members of the Fellowship by name. But if you haven't taken the time to dig deep into Tolkien lore to discover the histories of Frodo and his companions, consider Shayalyn your official Fellowship biographer. In this, the second of her introductions to the members of the Fellowship, she brings us an "interview" with the ring bearer, Frodo Baggins himself.
As the door opens, a pleasant face greets me. “A good day to you,” says Frodo. Although his voice is cheerful as he welcomes me into his home, I can’t fail to notice something solemn about his demeanor as I duck to enter the little hobbit hole. We take a seat before the fireplace. Frodo crosses his legs and leans back comfortably.
“I’m honored to meet you,” I say--and I truly am. After all, not only has Frodo been the deputy mayor of Michel Delving, and not only is he a highly respected citizen of Middle-earth, but he was the hobbit responsible for transporting the One Ring on its long journey from the Shire to the fires of Mount Doom.
