Rabbit, part 3

[06.019] They were particularly interested xx in the riddle-competition, xx and shuddered most appreciatively at his description of Gollum. xx

[06.023] xx The dwarves looked at him xx with quite a new respect, xx when he talked about dodging guards, xx jumping over Gollum,

[08.125] xx But very soon they began to ask questions. xx They had to have the whole vanishing business carefully explained, xx and the finding of the ring interested them so much xx that for a while they forgot their own troubles. xx Balin in particular xx insisted on having the Gollum story, xx riddles and all, xx told all over again, xx with the ring xx in its proper place.

[08.126] xx All except Balin. xx Long after the others had stopped talking xx and shut their eyes, xx he kept on muttering xx and chuckling to himself. xx

[08.127] xx ‘Gollum! Well I’m blest! xx So that’s how he sneaked past me, xx is it? xx Now I know! xx Just crept quietly along did you, xx Mr. Baggins? xx
