Spring week 2
A Rude AwakeningMy second patient turned up at my door at the break of dawn, its a good job I'm an early riser. As it was, I was still a little groggy as I answered the door, allowing myself to be nearly bowled over by a hooded figure barging past me into the cottage. I quickly gathered myself and turned to give my intruder a severe tongue lashing, but was pulled up short as the figure drew back their hood and begged me to help her.
I knew precisely which ingredients would cure her ailment, as it was something I had been taught by the Pincone Coven. Turns out young ladies kissing frogs, in the hopes of one turning into a handsome prince, is more common than one would think. So I packed up my stuff, warned the young lady not to go in the potion room, that I would know if she did, and set off once more.
Please you have to help me. I can't go home looking like this. Can I stay here? I won't be any bother, I promise.
From her warty lips and the slight greenish tinge to her skin, I could tell straight away she had foolishly kissed a frog, but the full story took some getting out of her as she was extremely frantic and embarrased.
A Loch Less Peaceful
Boat RentalHalf day - 5c Full day - 1s Damage to boats while under renter's care, must be repaired at renter's expense
Fishing SuppliesSmall fish bait - 1c Large fish bait - 2c Spare line - 5c per reel
As soon as he realised I was a Witch, the kind old man at the docks refused to take any money from me for renting one of his boats. The rule on damage still stood though, after all he still had a living to make. It was a bright clear day, with a cool gentle breeze, perfect for a trip out onto the Loch. I leisurely headed for one of the small islands near the middle of the loch, it looked like the perfect home for a colony of the frogs I was searching for.
