(sorry for skipping a week. I missed it and it got late and I figured at that point … just skip it and push it ahead. So here we go… from the last one).
Ronnie looked around and rubbed his head. When he landed, it was with one heck of a thump. People should not be sent flying via a catapult, that’s for sure.
And where the heck was he?
It seemed, as he looked around with thick walls of trees and other obstacles, he was in the middle of a labyrinth. The paths were narrow, but there was a definite direction to follow. Ronnie went down one, only to find a roadblock. Down another – and the same. And then finally, he found a way out.
But this labyrinth wasn’t easy. Blocks and openings. It seemed like he was here for days. Along the way, though, some odd things happened. A black cat crossed his path and he got spooked. The cat has piercing blue eyes and stared at Ronnie before hissing and running off. But moments later, he found a mace laying in the middle of the path. Though it would be a pain to carry it around, he figured it might come in handy.
Boy was he right.
It seemed like Ronnie was heading out until he came to a river. Slowly paddling nearby was somebody who looked like the grim reaper. Though we can’t be sure that’s who it was, Ronnie reluctantly accepted a ride to get across this river.
The person stared with a sick smile on his face, until Ronnie pointed the mace at him. Then the ride went quickly and Ronnie got out of the boat without trouble.
After landing, Ronnie found a path leading to a nice building. It almost looked like a lighthouse, and he walked until he reached the door and he knocked. He was greeted by a wizard, who told him to come into the house and join them!
For today … was a feast! There was a full pig being prepared for this feast and soon Ronnie would put himself almost into a food coma!
When done, he needed to get home, however. And this time, the wizard made a much better boat appear … and soon Ronnie was off to his home.
