Belated happy birthday to @radiorcrist - one of the most talented artists in the Hobbit fandom (and that’s saying a lot!) and one of the first people who welcomed me to tumblr. A very warm, funny and supportive person. <3
Thorin pulled the bottom of his foot closer to his behind, feeling the worn muscle stretch. The bricks of the wall he was leaning against had grown warm under his prolonged touch.
He checked his watch again and looked back towards the door to the building. Suddenly, the light turned on in the hallway, the yellow glow coming through the small window at the top of the door and onto the murky pavement.
Thorin pushed away from the wall quickly as he saw the door open up and the front wheel of bicycle pushing through the doorway.
He jogged closer.
‘Good morning,’ he said to the smaller man who was struggling to hold the door away from his bike.
‘Oh.’ The man smiled as Thorin grabbed hold of the door and held it open for him. ‘Morning. Out for your usual run?’
