"When it was almost dark Tirian heard a light pitter-patter of feet and saw some small creatures coming twoard him....Then, in a moment, they were all standing up on their hind legs, laying their cool paws on his knees and giving his knees snuffly animal kisses....They fed him with oat-cakes and fresh butter, and then with some more wine.
"'Now hand up the water,' said the first Mouse, 'and I'll wash the King's face. There is blood on it.'"
