The Challenge:

To fill out the below whimsical Mad Libs to create our very own fairy-tale! All we have to do is choose a word that fits the provided prompts given. Once that was done and the blanks filled we have our very own story!

The Fairy-tale:

Once upon a time, in a far away kingdom, there lived a smart thief. She lived alone in a bakery, where she had grown up with the deceased owner. She had beautiful hands, and she was known for her shiny red necklace, the only thing she had left of her parents.

Alas, the king of the country became jealous and wanted to own this necklaceSo, she became a wanted person and had to flee into the forest to find a place to hide. After running around for hours, hungry and tired, she stumbled upon a hut. An old lady appeared, offering her shelter from the bitter cold.  She looked at her with sadness 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 violin back. Here is a magical bean, throw it into the earth, sprinkle with water and it will sprout a beanstalk. You have 13 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 tower. She walked to the door and knocked. A booming 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 creaking sound when it opened and revealed a large hall filled with golden eggs She stepped inside and walked towards the spiralling 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, it moved and stood in front of her. There were three horns on his head, and hair all over his face and his mouth was filled with large teeth. He wore a long cloak over a tunic with slits and knee-high boots.

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

“If you give me the violinI will help you.”

In keeping her promise, the beast and she 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 carpenter 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.
