Jenny knew there wasn't much time. She had to get to the bank before the others. Few her age had ever been successful in this business, and Big Joe was determined she wouldn't now.

Jenny looked at the sun. It was setting faster than she could move. She stretched out long legs and raced. She could feel pursuit right behind. Was it Joe, or another competitor? She pushed harder.

Just as the sun dropped into its nightly bed, she landed on the bank. Slurp, slurp, two bugs down her gullet before Joe ever landed. Take that, frog boys!
