The Fairy Tale (with my silly & random answers)
Once upon a time, in a far away (1) woods, there lived a smart (2) necromancer. She lived alone in a (3) convenient store, where she had grown up with the deceased owner. She had beautiful (4) fingers, and she was known for her shiny red (5) chocolate, the only thing she had left of her parents.
Alas, the (6) chef of the country became jealous and wanted to own this (7) strawberries. So, she became a wanted person and had to flee into the forest to find a place to hide. After (8) speaking around for hours, hungry and tired, she stumbled upon (9) beach. An old lady appeared, offering her shelter from the bitter cold. She looked at her with (10) nervousness and said “I will protect you, but I need your help first. Years ago I lost something precious and I want it back. You need to climb into the sky and get my (11) flute back. Here is a magical (12) stem, throw it into the earth, sprinkle it with water and it will sprout a beanstalk. You have (13) seventeen days to return before the stalk withers.”
She followed the instructions given to her, and lo and behold, a beanstalk grew and grew and grew all the way up to the clouds. After an exhausting climb, she saw a huge (14) bunaglow. She walked to the door and knocked. A (15) croaky voice said “Fee-fi- fo-fum, who dares to come and enter my house?” She was not afraid and said “My name is Jamie and I’ve come to collect an item.”
The door made a (16) farting sound when it opened and revealed a large (17) kitchen filled with golden (18) cutting board. She stepped inside and walked towards the spiraling staircase, where a figure moved, cloaked in darkness.
“Who are you? Step in to the light, so I can see your face.”
The beast growled angry. “Why did you come here? I just want to be left alone.” Still, she moved and stood in front of it. There were three horns on his head, and hair all over his face and his mouth was filled with large teeth. He wore (19) black jeans, long gray t shirt and white socks. “What happened to you?” She reached out to touch one of the horns, but the beast flinched. “Many years ago I was cursed by a witch. I have one year left (20) laughing so I can break the spell, but I’m not brave enough.”
“If you give me the (21) harp, I will help you.”
In keeping her promise, the beast and her worked for a few hours and that afternoon, the beast transformed into an ordinary older guy. “I can’t wait to return to my job as a (22) graphic designer in the normal world. Can I come with you?” Together they climbed down the beanstalk, carrying the instrument for the old lady. The moment she saw the guy and her beloved instrument, she started to weep.
“My husband, you have returned!” They hugged and looked at her.
“We have to tell you something” the old lady said. “You are our child. We were separated after the curse, but now we are reunited!” From that day, the three of them lived together in the forest, happily ever after.
Hopefully you guys thought my answers were fun or amusing. I don’t play this type of game often, but this did make me want to try it again in different ways. Comment below if you’re participating in the Love-a-Thon and we can check out everybody’s stuff 🙂
