“Come on Freddy, don’t be a wimp, it’ll be fun.”

“I’m not sure Kermit. You know what mum said about us wandering off.”

“She’ll never know. We’ll be there and back in no time.”

“But what if the stories are true Kermit?”

“They’re not. You coming or not?”

Kermit took a great leap and, hesitantly, his brother followed him. Within minutes they’d left the safety of their home and were on the far edge of the watery field of lilies.

And, as all you frogs out there will have guessed by now, they didn’t come back.

The stories were true.
