Hey guys! I’m excited to be participating in my second Love-a-Thon. The first mini-challenge that we have is to make mad libs but it’s fairy tale edition. I felt like this was a lot of fun to do.

Once upon a time, in a far away (1) forest, there lived a smart (2) dragon. She lived alone in a (3) tree stump, where she had grown up with the deceased owner. She had beautiful (4) arms, and she was known for her shiny red (5) earrings, the only thing she had left of its parents.

Alas, the (6) Duchess of the country became jealous and wanted to own these (7) earrings. So, she became a wanted person and had to flee into an unknown forest to find a place to hide. After (8) hopping around for hours, hungry and tired, it stumbled upon a (9) pond. An old lady appeared, offering it shelter from the bitter cold.  She looked at it with (10) pity 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) tuba back. Here is magical (12) bread, throw it into the earth, sprinkle with water and it will sprout a beanstalk. You have (13) three 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) cabin. She walked to the door and knocked. A (15) obnoxious 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 (15) squeaking sound when it opened and revealed a large (17) bathroom filled with golden (18) eggs.  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, the dragon 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) a sweater.

“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) to love so I can break the spell, but I’m not brave enough.”

“If you give me the (21) tuba, I will help you.”

In keeping its promise, the beast and the dragon 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 (22) a lawyer 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 it.

“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.
