Mini Challenge #1 - Mad Libs -- Fairytale Edition

Once upon a time, in a far away Canada, there lived a smart witch. She lived alone in a grocery store, where she had grown up with the deceased owner. She had beautiful toes, and she was known for her shiny red yoga mat, the only thing she had left of her parents.

Alas, the duchess of the country became jealous and wanted to own this yoga mat. So, she became a wanted person and had to flee into the forest to find a place to hide. After stretching around for hours, hungry and tired, she stumbled upon Vancouver. An old lady appeared, offering her shelter from the bitter cold.  She looked at the witch with zen 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 piano back. Here is a magical toast, throw it into the earth, sprinkle with water and it will sprout a beanstalk. You have seven 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, she saw a huge townhouse. She walked to the door and knocked. A soft spoken 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 a tapping sound when it opened and revealed a large kitchen filled with golden marbles.  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, it moved and stood in front of Jamie. There were three horns on his head, and hair all over his face and his mouth was filled with large teeth. He wore fashionable clothing.

"What happened to you?" She 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 to walk so I can break the spell, but I'm not brave enough."

"If you give me the piano, I will help you."

In keeping its promise, the beast and Jamie 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 office manager 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 Jamie.

"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.
