A Dawning Hope  by Baggins Babe 5 Review(s)
AntaneReviewed Chapter: 1 on 11/25/2007
"Sam?" Frodo said tentatively. "Sam? My Sam?"

"Always your Sam, sir......Frodo. Always." They fell into each other's arms, both weeping.

Neither knew how long they stood, arms tight around each other, tears running down their faces, exactly as they had stood on another quay 60 years before. This time though, the tears were joyful ones, and there would be no parting, not ever. When their spirits tired of Arda they would go together.

At last Sam pulled back a little, his hands still round Frodo's waist. "Let me look at you. Still so......... perfect," he breathed, scanning his master's features. "Are you healed, m'dear?"

"I am now," Frodo replied shakily. "I thought you wouldn't come. I shouldn't have asked it of you......."

"Yes, you should, and if my arrival means you're finally healed, then I wish I'd come sooner, but I couldn't leave my Rose. I came as soon as I could."

"What about you, dear Sam? Were you one and whole?"

"In some ways, yes, but I could never be truly whole without you, master of my heart. 'My treasure' as Ellie always called you, and you were - and you are still!" He pulled the slender hobbit into his arms and held him as tightly as he could.

Ah, Love! And that Rose had his pack always ready. This lass is a prize who well knows and understands and doesn't mind that she's always shared her Sam with another he's loved just as long and as fiercely. There's a e-card that has Frodo and Sam and saying something like Sunshine through my window...that's what you are - and that's indeed what they were to each other.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: I love Rose. I know some writers hate her but I think she's wonderful. She gave Sam love and stability and kept him happy and grounded.

I've always seen Frodo and Sam as brothers in spirit - they went through so much together that it bonded them for eternity I should think.

Very sweet. I'll have to go back and read the other, next time I get online.

Really sweet!!! Makes me think of me and my best friend far away in Germany...wonder if I will ever see her again..............

Author Reply: I think I have to believe that Frodo and Sam do meet again, otherwise it would be unbearable.

Author Reply: I'm not normally such a softie but this story does something to me.
