Old Toad

When the princess told us who she was seeking, we toads rejoiced, for we had been waiting a long time for her to arrive. We gave her what she would need to make the long journey to save the prince.

One day, you will see, our two kingdoms will be reunited. Humans and toads will be one again. It will happen when the kings remember how great and how small they are.
