There and Back Again - Month 10

Smaug certainly looked fast asleep, almost dead and dark, with scarecely a snore more than a whiff of unseen steam, when Bilbo peeped once more from the entrance. He was just about to step out on to the floor when he caught a sudden thin and piercing ray of red from under the drooping lid of Smaug's left eye. He was only pretending to sleep!
The Hobbit,Chapter 12
