The Hobbit, Bilbo, took the dwarfs to explore the Smaug’s lair and found the treasure. Bilbo found the Arkenstone, the heart of the mounties, before the rest of the dwarfs saw the treasure. He took it to himself without telling anyone, and he keeps it as a secret. The dwarves and Bilbo were stuck in the dark tunnel, where “little they ate and little they spoke” and “they scarcely dared to move” as Bilbo described. They were too afraid of the smage, thus, after 5 days have passed they were running out of air. Thorin tells everyone that risking their life for the Smaug is better than dyingin a dingy tunnel, while running out if air. Bilbo knew that the only way out of the unilluminated tunnel is going down the end of it.
