The Friar

The friars were behind on their monastery payments, so they opened a small florist shop to raise funds.

Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of God, the rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair. He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not. He went back and begged the friars to close. They ignored him.

He asked his mother to go and ask the friars to get out of business. They ignored her too.

So, the rival florist hired Hugh, the town bully, to "persuade" them to close. Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he'd be back if they didn't close shop.

Terrified, they did so - proving that Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars.
