'Now you know my secret shame, and I trust you will keep it to yourself! It all began some time ago, when I offered to walk Celandine Brandybuck back to her home after a dinner party my mother hosted. Celandine was very happy to have the company, but as we began the walk I saw that the hour was much later than I had thought! The night was dark and the shadows were deep, and my blood ran cold at every creepy sound! I knew if I did not do something, Celandine would know me for a coward. Cry disaster! In order to mask my fear, I adopted a brazen attitude and mocked every fear I felt. It was all an act, an act at which I have become all too practiced!'
'Still, Bingo is my cousin, and that was a mean trick for any family member to perform, at any remove and no matter the distance! Speaking of distance, I was on my way back to the Greenfields when you caught up to me. I turned around because I heard something scary and dropped my pack, and ran back this way. Do you think you can retrace my steps to the north-west and find my pack? I don't think I have the courage to go back and look for it!'
Dinodas Boffin has revealed his secret shame: that his insistent disbelief of anything scary was an attempt to hide his deep fear of it.
