The final story brought to us by the winning combination of Ursula and Mitch, Becky steals into our hearts one last time.

 Becky has reached the point in her swimming lessons when she has stopped being a Frog and has moved up to be a Platypus. She has to go into the deep end, and she's not at all sure that she's ready for it. She wishes she could be a Frog for just a little while longer.
