(Written for the October 2013 LOTR GFIC "Lost and Found" Challenge)
Safe and warm in their green herb-scented nest in Wellinghall, Merry was about to drop off to sleep when he heard Pippin heave a sigh.
"What's wrong, Pip?"
"I was missing my brooch, the one the Lady gave me when we left Lothlorien." He clutched at the neck of his cloak.
"I'd been meaning to ask about it, Pip; did the Orcs steal it?"
"No. I was just a fool of a Took. I threw it away on the march, a clue for Strider if he was looking for us. Just a stupid thing to do, and I regret it."
"Good old Strider!" said Merry. "You were right about Aragorn following us!"
Pippin nodded. "I was, wasn't I?"
"Not so foolish now?"
"I don't regret it after all."
