Today is tell a Fairy Tale Day, so naturally I asked Megan to help me out! If you aren't following her blog, make sure you go there right away & follow! She's amazing. Here is the story she wrote for me:
Isn't she the greatest? Haha. So, go check out her blog already!!Once upon a time I was a normal girl.
Well, about as normal as any girl could be after being abducted in the middle of the night by trolls.
Yes. Trolls. Big ugly ones with crooked and blackened teeth and a smell so repulsive it could peel wallpaper.
They took me to another world. Through a mirror. Yes, it seems like a Alice in Wonderland type tale, but I assure you it is not.
There was no white rabbit and no singing door mouse. There was not even any treats.
Just a filthy dungeon where I was placed for the better part of a week.
I don't remember much about my time there, but I do remember the window. It was tiny, but even so I could see part of this magical place and it was beautiful!!!
Lush green fields as far as the eye could see. Enchanting flowers scattered everywhere. Huge blue trees that had the oddest pink birds in it.
Okay, so, not a normal world, but it had it's own unique beauty.
And if I was not trapped in a dungeon I am sure I would really be able to appreciate it's beauty!!
Suddenly, a vile old woman was standing at the bars telling me to give her the amulet.
That I had no right to take it from her and that if I didn't hand it over to her something bad would happen.
Something to do with boiling oil, pain and death.
Sadly I have no clue what this amulet is.
After what seems like hours of her screaming at me, she gets frustrated at my lack of answers; turns and hobbles back up the stairs.
After trying to fit through the minuscule window, with no success I try rattling the bars.
Again, with no success of opening them.
By this point I was discouraged, tired and hungry.
So when a little fairy flew in and landed on one of the bars, my hopes began to rise.
I mean, fairies are supposed to help and do good right?
This little fairy was no more than 4 inches high and had the prettiest crown of golden hair I have ever seen.
She asked if I was in need of help, when I told her I am in here against my will, that the evil old woman was going to kill me over an amulet!!
The little fairy said that, that is awful!! She will help me escape.
With a twitch of her wings she was hovering near the bard then with a flick of her wrist fairy dust settled over the bars causing them to open.
Gotta love magic!!
She told me to take the hall all the way down till you reach a big brown door. That will lead me out to the garden outside the castle walls.
She told me to travel West and when I come to a brook that will lead me to a cottage that houses the mirror needed to take me home.
So down the hall I went and through the door I walked and I breathed in the fresh air and heard the odd pink birds singing.
I think they were singing Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here.
So West I traveled and I could just about hear a brook when suddenly I was snatched up heafted high up onto a white horse.
With a very handsome fellow riding on it.
He was just about to say something when the pink bird started beeping.
A loud obnoxious beeping. That just kept going and going and going.
I turned back to aks Mr. Handsome what was going on........
.......And then I was awake.
Sitting up in my lovely pink bed surrounded by my cream walls with Taylor, my cat staring up at me.
What a peculiar dream.
No more reading The Brothers Grimm before bed for me!!!
