Kissing Frogs

“Oh woe is me” Princess Sally cried as the giggling little girls drop their second frog back into the water after they had both kissed it looking for an enchanted prince. Of course nothing had happened. Laughing at their attempts to finding a prince they went looking for more frogs. When Sally didn’t jump out of the way fast enough they caught her. In surprisingly gentle hands they both kissed her. And when nothing happened and they dropped her back in the water.

“It’s not fair!” Sally cried, “I’ll be a frog forever. Boys don’t kiss frogs looking for Princesses.

It’s a Trap

“I feel magic being used.” The Magi said holding up a hand halting the adventurers in the middle of the cave. The thief and the fighter looked around, but could see little in light of the orb hovering over their heads that bathed the seen in green light.

“I feel it too. I’ll cast a dispel glamour spell.” Said the cleric waving his arms.

They felt something melt away around them.

Instead of standing in the middle of a dark empty cave, they were suddenly standing in the middle of a brightly lit cave inhabitant by very hungry looking dragons.

The book

The magician waved his hands in the air leaving bright yellow glow behind them that hummed and formed arcane symbols. At last the pattern was complete. The hovering lights all swished and swirled together into a bright column that disappeared through the roof with a loud popping sound.

On the floor where the lights had disappeared lay a book. The magician was elated!
It worked! He eagerly scooped it up and turned to the first page to start reading….

Only to find a note from the cosmos, “You will just have to wait for the seventh book like everyone else.”
