Rumpelstiltskin - Chapter Three (part three)“The king decrees that the princess be placed in her bedroom,” said a guard as Rumpelstiltskin eavesdropped in the square that night. “She has fallen under the curse.”Rumpelstiltskin - Chapter Three (part three) by Narryaque
The two other guards with him both bowed their heads. One replied, “It wasn’t supposed to be this way…”
Rumpelstiltskin left them and found his way through the crowd again. He took advantage of the night, and took to the secret passages of the palace once more. This time, his destination was the room of the princess.
He peeked into every room when he found a great hallway lined with fine doors; but all was dark, lighted only by rays of moonlight that shone in from the windows. He stayed in the shadows and at last came to a room with a four-post canopy bed; there on the bed in the moonlight, lay Rose.
Rumpelstiltskin approached her bedside and knelt. He looked upon her and sighed softly. These whispers he only whispered when he knew no one could hear: “All I wanted was
Mages of Myth - Book 2 Chapter 5Chapter 5Mages of Myth - Book 2 Chapter 5 by Narryaque
King Ruben Esquire, his daughter Princess Tabula Esquire, his mage Ebon, and the five mages stood in the throne room.
“Do you think it was an assassination of some kind, Majesty?” Griffin asked this question to the king, who sat in his throne next to his daughter.
Ruben shook his head. “Speak not that word; I distrust it. No, there’s no way my daughter’s bed could have been taken up into that tree except by magic. But Ebon’s is underclass, and I know it’s not you five; you just saved our lives.”
Pegasus crossed his arms over his chest. He stroked his white bearded chin. “Could there be any other mages in the pass?”
Ruben shook his head. “Not for ages, and I’m sure you all know that very well by now.”
Ebon glared darkly at the mages as he stood near the thrones. “How do we know for sure it was not you five, or any one of you for that matter? How do we know this is not a ruse?”
Rumpelstiltskin - Chapter Three (part two)Over the next few weeks, Rose and Rumpelstiltskin ate meals near the stream together, explored the woods together, and walked back to Rose’s house together. Every day, Rose followed the trail of bread crumbs back to the stream, and both talked about anything except each other’s’ pasts.Rumpelstiltskin - Chapter Three (part two) by Narryaque
One day, as the sun set, Rose rested her head against her new friend’s shoulder and said suddenly, “I won’t be living in the woods anymore.”
Rumpelstiltskin frowned. “Where will you go?”
She raised her head and looked at him. “Somewhere that bread crumbs cannot follow.” She frowned at him and waited for his reply.
He studied her eyes. “Well…I wish you the very best.”
She hesitated, but then smiled; or seemed to. “And I wish you the very best.”
“You’re lying,” he said. “You can’t fake a smile; not with your pretty face.”
She looked down and laughed. “You always know whe

The Last Spinning Wheel
Rumpelstiltskin made his way to a neighboring kingdom, but kept a low profile as he wandered in the woods, just on the edge of the city. He sat down on a wooden log, near a small stream, and opened the bag of food and items he had brought with him. He dug for an apple and glanced around at the trees and bushes that surrounded him. He listened to the running water and chirping birds. The sun was beginning to set at last. As he found an apple and bit into it, he glanced back in the direction from whence he came.
His thoughts went back to the queen. He pitied her more than anything. She could have done better than a greedy king. The kingdom deserved a better heir than—
Well, too late for that now. It’s in the past. Let it go.
Rumpelstiltskin turned back toward the stream and bit into his apple again.
He then heard a twig snap, and he whirled around just in time to see an arm reaching into the bag at his side. His hand flew and caught the arm j
