The boy nods in agreement. "Zast's Ice Cream is the best, Sir!" The boy
grabs Kyle by the hand and leads him down to a small, stone building that
contains a confectionary shop.

appear at dusk, come into the pubs and sit around. My dad and my brother
say that they are asking for somebody called Frost. They never buy
anything, but always leave a shiny gold coin. No one would attack our town,
but now the Harbor Master is on edge, which is why you treated that way. Do
you know anything about this Frost person?"
