Nuisance and the Nine Golden Keys – p.18

May 8, 2013 at 5:20 pm 1 comment

Nuisance was awoken by a scream. The fabric he’d slept in was now the object of much interest to a group of women, and they were all very upset to see him.

Before he could flee, a pair of rough hands had scooped him up, along with the golden keys, and held him out for inspection. Nuisance blinked; the sun was bright and everyone was dressed in fine clothes, the tent was decorated with flowers and ribbons and things, and off in the direction of the farmer’s cottage someone was playing music.

He was then carried, with much ceremony, to one end of the tent, and the man holding him proclaimed, “Fine tidings to your lordship on this blessed day; I have caught the magical creature and his treasure!” Then Nuisance was dropped into a big jar with a heavy lid, and the golden keys handed over to a man in rich looking clothes.

There was a cry of congratulations and cheer amongst the people, and then the finely dressed man examined the keys. “These are a mystery, sure.” He put one in his mouth and bit on it. “Gold. GOLD!” There was shouting and shoving, and in the excitement, no one noticed the young boy who took the jar with Nuisance inside and slipped away.
