A conflict that Bilbo experiences is when he encounters with the three trolls. This conflict is known as an external conflict. When Bilbo was sent to see what the red light was, he saw three trolls sitting around a fire. Then, he decided to steal William's (one of the trolls) purse. This purse was a mischief. When Bilbo was taking it out of William's pocket, it squeeled, "Ere, oo are you?" Then William quickly turned around and then grabbed Bilbo by the neck. After that, the other trolls came. One of the trolls, Bert, didn't want to let him go, while William felt pitty for him. The conflict was that he meets the trolls and they don't want to let him go.
