Dionysus’s Deal and The Golden Hair
Rumpelstiltskin wandered the woods until he came upon a small town. He stepped into a tavern, and sat at the counter. “Ale, please,” he said to the man behind the counter, and rubbed his eyes.
The man answered back, “Anything for my own grandson.”
Rumpelstiltskin opened his eyes to the tavern keeper who smiled back at him. “Silenus?”
The keeper chuckled as he poured a drink. “I’d say your name, son, but I know what it does to you.” He poured a drink for him.
Rumpelstiltskin had a better look at the man, and saw that he was a satyr. “For a moment, I thought you had turned fully human,” he said with a smirk, as he accepted the drink. “I didn’t recognize you, gramps.”
Silenus leaned on the counter and crossed his goat-leg ankles as he leaned. “What are you doing in these woods? Midas’s rose garden isn’t far from here, and I know you don&

Camur flipped through the pages of Runes and Ruses as Ebon snored in his sleep. Camur read the spells by blue-fire candlelight on the floor. He laid his scrawny body on the floor under a wool blanket Ebon had given him. Camur had decided that even though Ebon was underclass mage, he was surely a loyal servant. Camur made a mental note to reward him abundantly.
As the snow fell on the stone roof of the library, Camur read this spell by blue hue firelight:
To Kindap the Haert: You wait aruond for her haert, you get nohting for your faets. Take her in your amrs; wish her good forutne. Reicte the runes of lvoe and your faets will swtich face.
Camur flipped through the pages and found the Rune of Love:
Rune of Lvoe (anicent lanugage): Note: letters wrtiten corerctly: Ego iuro amor, perfidia. Tuus pectus sum effodio.
Camur hummed. He knew the translation well: I swear love, falseness. Your heart be mine.
Ebon can do it, Camur thought. He will. For me, he will. And if not, then he
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

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?”
