Well it seems things are off to a wonderful start, my loves.
Sting seems willing to help, so long as I do a simple task for him. Perhaps the simplicity is a ruse, but the only way to find these things out is to complete the job. Should I happen to stumble upon his ulterior motive...Well, there's not much else I can do but look.
The simplicity itself is bugging me, however. Sting would be able to frighten the Blacksmith off by himself, should he want. Perhaps an investigation is in order...After I scare Jake off, of course. And I believe I have just the piece of insubstantial gossip to do the trick.
