Once upon a time, in a far away Uruguay, there lived a smart Shadow. She lived alone in a bookstore, where she had grown up with the deceased owner. She had beautiful nails, and she was known for her shiny red glasses, the only thing she had left of its parents.
Alas, the Tzar of the country became jealous and wanted to own these glasses. So, she became a wanted person and had to flee into the forest to find a place to hide. After reading around for hours, hungry and tired, she stumbled upon a russian. An old lady appeared, offering her shelter from the bitter cold. She looked at her with anticipation and said: “I will protect you, but I need your help first. Years ago I lost something precious and I want it back. You need to climb into the sky and get my castanets back. Here is a magical cake, throw it into the earth, sprinkle with water and it will sprout a beanstalk. You have 8 days to return before the stalk withers.”
She followed the instructions given to her, and lo and behold, a beanstalk grew and grew and grew all the way up to the clouds. After an exhausting climb, it saw a huge cape dutch. She walked to the door and knocked. A gravelly voice said: ‘Fee-fi-fo-fum, who dares to come and enter my house?” She was not afraid and said: “My name is Jamie and I’ve come to collect an item.”
The door made an echoing sound when it opened and revealed a large living room filled with golden pens and paper. She stepped inside and walked towards the spiraling staircase, where a figure moved, cloaked in darkness.
“Who are you? Step in to the light, so I can see your face.”
The beast growled angry. “Why did you come here? I just want to be left alone.” Still, she moved and stood in front of it. There were three horns on his head, and hair all over his face and his mouth was filled with large teeth. He wore long navy pants and a big white t-shirt, he was barefoot and wore a big ring on his left hand.
“What happened to you?” It reached out to touch one of the horns, but the beast flinched. “Many years ago I was cursed by a witch. I have one year left dream so I can break the spell, but I’m not brave enough.”
“If you give me the castanets, I will help you.”
In keeping her promise, the beast and her worked for a few hours and that afternoon, the beast transformed into an ordinary older guy. “I can’t wait to return to my job as dancer in the normal world. Can I come with you?” Together they climbed down the beanstalk, carrying the instrument for the old lady. The moment she saw the guy and her beloved instrument, she started to weep.
“My husband, you have returned!” They hugged and looked at her.
“We have to tell you something,” the old lady said. “You are our child. We were separated after the curse, but now we are reunited!” From that day, the three of them lived together in the forest, happily ever after.
