Froggy no Tail: vendors & lenders

Froggy optimistically wandered across the market square and pondered a while at each vendor as he past. Oranges, apples, twine and trinkets were all on display. A vendor spied Froggy and called across invitingly.

‘Hello young man, can I ask you for a little of your help?’ the vendor enquired. Froggy responded happily, ‘ what can I do for you?’. The vendor’s eyes twinkled almost as if the glinting of a sun rising once more.

The vendor explained he wanted Froggy to visit the Old Smithy Inn and speak to a certain Mr Snout in regard to the borrowing of a small amount of coin, and in return he would pay Froggy a worthy coin for his trouble. The vendor asked no more and no less, with Froggy considering it to be a simple task. Froggy agreed and without further hesitation made his way off to the inn.
