Treasure hunt

Ten tango steps around a dance floor
When you get to the door
Not that one, the smaller one
Up high
Drink the wine
It will make you fly
Don’t forget the key I left on the floor
It is made of music notes and gentle whispers

Once in the forest
Find the unicorns
They will show you how to slay the faerie king
Don’t follow the faerie king into his hill or eat his sweets
Once he is slain
Take his gold tooth
You will need it to get past the sirens

Convince the hippocampus to fare you across the dark sea
They are nice creatures
If you are polite they will take you

Look to the horizon and follow the purple moon

When you see the axe
Pick it up
Get used to the idea of blood
You will know why you need the axe when you see it
You may rinse your body off in the pools of destiny but it is not necessary

When you see the trolls

When you see the witches, naked and dancing
Stay a while
They brew good tea

You will get to a wall
If you tickle the second brick on the right
The wall will giggle and let you through

Pick up the shovel

To make it through the labyrinth
Get yourself good and lost
Never follow the signs

In the center of the labyrinth there is a garden
Six paces away from the dragon’s tombstone
Start digging

You will find a box
Be careful with it
Made of clouds and starlight,
It will open if you tell it a secret

Inside that you will find a jar guarded by a onyx and ruby spider
She is beautiful and sweet but deadly AF so be gentle and kind
She will request one drop of blood and a single tear before she will let you take the jar

Do not open it here.

You must get back past the door and back on the dancefloor by midnight.
Only then can you open the jar

Now, Amberley… be careful with your heart this time… okay?

    1. Lol that’s all it takes…

      not really… that map is for myself. That is where I have hidden it to keep it safe. Lol I can give it out when I want… I just have to retrieve it first. It would be a little rough of me to make some poor dude do all this weirdo shit 🤣🤣🤣

      I’m glad you loved it, Muffins. 😚🖤


  2. I love fairy tales, and yours is no exception, I’d say it’s a classic. And we live happily every after on the moonlit purple and orange dance floor… And yes we need some great music…. Enjoy !!

  3. “I got a jar of dirt! I got a jar of dirt!”

    “If you see the Trolls, run” makes me think of Troll Hunter, a fantasy/horror blend of a movie from Sweden that might be up your alley. Unless you’ve seen it, of course.
