Elobrylla Newbuck, Lily’s best friend since Lily joined the Gamgee family, was running as fast as she could up the hill towards her, up to Bag End.
“Lily!” Elobrylla gasped. She bent over with her hands on her knees dragging in ragged breaths as if she had run for miles.
Lily looked at her concerned and put her arms round her shoulders. “Bry! What is it?”
Bry put up her hands indicating her to stop until she had her breath back. So Lily gently moved her into the house and sat her down.
Bry looked up into her friend’s eyes with a look of sympathy in her eyes; she reached up and clasped Lily’s hands together in her own.
“Lily, I have just heard that you have been seeing Robéthe Noakes”
“Rob? Yes. 2 weeks now” a dreamy look passed over her face. Bry felt she had never looked so happy over the whole time she had known her. “He is so charming Bry. He is the sweetest guy I’ve ever known, he’s funny and he may not be the best looking guy in the shire but he is still cute.”
“And such a gentleman!”
“When I stand, he stands and when I sit on a chair he is there to pull it out for me. Things that I had thought had grown old and disappeared long ago.”
“Lily, you know I’m friends with his best friend Minto Bramble?”
“Yes? What of it.”
“Well I was with them today in The Green Dragon and they did get rather drunk. You know what they are like when they are drunk,” Lily did, “they say things that they wouldn’t normally say and…”
Lily got concerned, they didn’t normally say anything this bad, she really looked uncomfortable and like she didn’t want to tell her. “Bry? What is it?”
“They accidentally told me that Rob was only going out with you for a dare. They said that they dared him to kiss you at the party ages ago and when you ran off they all laughed at him. He apparently got all uptight and said that he could get a date with you if he wanted to…so they dared him.” Bry shrugged, “I’m sure…”
“Thanks Bry,” all the colour from Lily’s face had gone.
“Are you okay? Lily I…”
“It’s okay, thank you. I’ll see you later.” Lily got up and slowly started to walk towards the door as if in a trance.
Lily just went on walking not even reacting to the sound of Bry’s voice, when suddenly another voice came floating through the open door.
“Lily? Hey beautiful! How are you? I…”
“A bet? I’m a bet?” Lily’s voice grew hysterical; “I’m just a stupid bet?”
Rob looked confused before he suddenly realised what she was talking about, his face dropped, “Oh, Lily! Lily I…”
“Don’t bother! I should’ve known that all men are the same. Never trust them, they always hurt you in the end. Why didn’t I listen to my first instincts?”
She burst into tears and ran away.
