Little Red

Once upon a time in a kingdom far, far away lived a little girl named Little Red. She was called Little Red because she was the only red haired girl in the kingdom.

One day Little Red went out of the kingdom with a basket of goodies that she took everywhere she went to meet up with her aunty who lived just along the shore out of the kingdom. While she was on her way to her Aunty's place, Little Red stumbled on to a big ugly troll.
"Hello little girl, where are you going?" asked the troll in charming voice.
Little Red replied "I'm going to visit my Aunty on the beach shore with my basket of goodies that I bring everywhere."
"Then go ahead, I'm not going to stop you" said the troll.

So Little Red skipped ahead picking up flowers along the way. The moment Little Red left the troll's stomach began to growl and he realised he had not eaten in two weeks.
"I gotta have the basket.!" the troll yelled, as he quickly dashed through a cave that led to the beach shore. The troll got to Little Red's Aunty's house before Little Red did and knocked on the door. The Aunty said "Who is it?" in an old an brittle voice. The troll got out a club, smashed the door open and replied "Troll" as he smacked her over the head with the club. The troll dragged the Aunty into her bed, covered her up and fixed the door.

Little Red came knocking on the door about five minutes later. The troll called, in a sweet but ugly tone "come in..." Little Red went in and walked up to her Aunty who was in bed. As she did this the troll snuck up from behind and clubbed her over the head, took the basket of goodies and ran off.

It was happy ever after for the troll.

Bravo Jason. You really excelled yourself. Having the troll live happily ever after is a stroke of creative genius.

I agree with Heather, it's nice to see a twist where the underdog or creature gets the prize!
