Re: The Goblin Tree

Then one very warm and moist night when Hec happened to be on duty at the tollbridge entrance [ oh how he loved it ] a traveler , a humbled traveler , at that , was on a mission . A mission to purchase some very specially rare mushrooms , from a troll whom is well reknown for her market trade in mushrooms { only grown in this part of the lands known as Somewheres Else , well , for obvious reasons }.
This traveler spent most of the wee hours haggling with Hec about everything over and under the sun , the moon and stars . The poor fellow got so worn down , that he turned back empty handed and with a loss of some of his own items as well . This boasted Hec Heckles ego so high , that he bellowed his mightily horrible laughter so loud it shook the bridge ramp and the bell in the toll tower and echoed up and down the whole length of the bridge !
HHUHHAARRRAARR HARRAHAHAHARR HHHAAARRRHAHAHA HHUUHHAARRR AAHH HAHA HHECCHECHECHEC HECA HECA HHAARRDDYYHARHAR HAHA AH AAHH HAHAHAAAA HAW HE HAW HAW HAHAHA A !!!!!!
Something like that , but even worse than words can describe !
It weighed so very heavily at the back of the traveler , so head hunched over he muttered and waved his fist at the toll bridge and troll village in general as he left .
Well it turns out , you see , that the traveler just happens to be the trustworthy assistant for a masterful wizard , who resides many a league from the troll village. When the assistant finally arrived and told his tale , the wizard was very upset about the whole ordeal [ for he needed those mushrooms as part to a remedy he was working on for his ailing friend , the king of the lords of the clouds ].
