Tickling Butterflies is an epic fantasy, containing 128 fairy tales that together create one huge story.
Here’s the story so far. The story continues:
The King’s New Ally
(Containing a short but tragic tale in which two old enemies look at each other for the last time.)
King John the Cute glided through the white tunnel easily. The pangs and pains in his heart, already aching beyond measure, ached even more.
Soon, the white tunnel gave way to an opening. The king slipped through, and fell in the middle of his court in the palace in CapitalCity in the Land of All Legends.
The king fought through the pain and rose to his feet, looking around. The land was grayer than when he had left it. The Land of All Legends was almost as colorless as the planet Earth.
A crowd surrounded King John the Cute. Among them he quickly spotted the blindfolded Queen Sarah O’Connell, Prince Charming the Fifth, Minister Azriel Jones, Colonel Stone, the shadowy creature that had given Death back his arm, the king’s army, the prince’s army, and even Chariot waited above.
“My friends, it is good to see you all again,” said King John the Cute. “I believe I have found the cure to the sickness of the land. Now I must leave you all and die.”
Out of the crowd of people, Death stepped forward and faced the king.
“I am here to help you,” said Death and for the first and last time he shook the king’s hand.
The king’s body, bereft of its soul, fell to the ground, lifeless.
This has been the story of how the battle for King John the Cute’s soul began.
