FFfAW — The Epilogue

After several hours, the giant awoke. And he was angry. Some little pissant had stolen his golden goose and his mission was to get it back. He went to where the base of the beanstalk was and, after sneaking around, to the extent that a giant can sneak around, he managed to locate the goose and grab it.

Then the giant plucked a long, golden feather from the goose’s tail and fashioned it into a quill. He crushed some blueberries he found to make ink. He located a piece of paper, dipped the quill into the blueberry ink, and wrote a note.

After he finished the note, he pinned it to Jack’s front door and left with the goose.

The next morning, Jack opened his door and saw the note, which said,893E70DE-058A-43FE-ADC3-F9F7834C61B0

          Yes, and being so scared, the merchant would abandon his bin of magical beans, leaving them for the giant to take. Makes sense, right?

            Yes, I thought of that, too. But then how common are magic beans anyway?

      Listen, the original story was based upon magic beans, a giant who lives in the clouds, and a goose who lays golden eggs. Stop searching for reality!

      I took a little literary license with the Fe Fi Fi thing for the sake of the rhyme. That’s how good of a poet I am!

    Maybe he set off and found a new home, next door to Jack, just to remind him not to mess with the Giant. Good fun 🙂

    I think the giant got back home and Jack decided to sneak up again ‘cos they really needed that goose. Unfortunately, he got caught in the land of the giants and they decided to make a pot of stew with Jack. Just as the cauldron was bubbling and ready to accept poor Jack….
