Opening his eyes he searched the world around him, a tiny voice whispered into his left ear startling him
“My name is Moukahka, spirit of the forest. I know what you’re looking for.”
“Oh praise be to God, someone who finally knows what it is I am supposed to find.”
“Don’t you know what it is you seek?”
“No. I woke up to find myself in this mythical land.”
“Hmmm, you sound like a silly warrior. I must help you then else you’ll be totally lost.”
“Thank you lovely fairy.”
And so they set off on their journey a tiny figure leading a man bent over from trying to hold on to his guide. One walked with dainty steps, the other walked ungainly trying not to trip the both of them over.
Soon they were at the treasure spot, lovely green and white rays twinkled intermittently, boulders of different sizes and colours lay all over the place.
“This is the treasure, now you’ve to open one of them.” giggled the fairy
Grandpa laughed “No way Daisy you’ll wait like everyone else.”
