Re: The Goblin Tree

Now one evening , a couple of goblins from the goblin tree were in a very mischievous mood , looking out to make and cause big trouble, something to snicker about for a long while to come . So they climbed high upon a mountainous rocky ledge dragging with them raggy sacks full of mushy rotting fruits enhanced with nasty goblin tricks . Grinning the worst goblin grins as can be and snickering the worst goblin snickers as can be, intenting on a horrible game of throwing the rotten fruits at the moon as it passed by the gorge of the rocky ledges.
So came by , the unaware moon , that evening in fullness and proudly bright . The goblins let fly their projectiles and though they missed many times there was no escapeing the nasty assault. Now soon the moon was hit and wavered and slipped lower and lower , so low it came and so near to the goblin tree that it got entangled into the branches { this was not the intentions of the two goblins}. When the rest of the goblins saw this they were wildly infuriated, leading them to set a terrible trick in the spooky tree this trick caused the willowy branches to tighten and in the grasp on the moon it begun to crack the moon making it break and turning it into rubble!

Re: The Goblin Tree

Out of the corner of her spirit eyes , night-mare caught a glimpse of this terrible deed , as speedy as can be , she raced acrossed the wide skies causeing waves of thunder rolls , louder then any storm. But she was very far distant yet night-mare raced on. As she rushed through the starry space , she signaled { with a brightly twinkled eye } star maiden child who took form at once as the night-mares rider.

Star child knew that they would be to late to save the moon in full , so they devised a plan of what to do to save the moon in parts. Just in time they were as the moon fell to pieces from the branches of the goblin tree , night-mare swooped down and star child with a net weaved of the flaming red strands of her solar flare hair scooped up the pieces before the hit the ground.
As they flew they encircled the world of Somewheres Else , speading the broken parts behind them . Meanwhile the star sun was horrified and angered by the nasty deeds of the goblins , that when he came round to the side of the goblin tree , he sent a very powerful sun beam and singed those branches.

.................................................. ...................

Nowatimes the moon stones circle the world of Somewhere's Else moveing slowly across the sky night and day. As the star sun makes his rounds he warms the stones so they are partly illuminated and once very forty turns of thr star sun the stones are fully illuminated by the mare of the night , for she touches lightly her flaming silver hooves to the moving moon stones as she gracefully flies by .

Re: The Goblin Tree

INTRODUCTION;


.................................................. ..................................................

The child reached up , stretching out a small but sure hand , fingers stretching even more. Reaching up for 'the book'. Standing on tiptoes [which one should NOT do] on the finely made wooden latter of the library. The book , that curious book , the child wondered about many times , looking up at it way, way up on the top shelf of the high ceiling library , old old uncle's library in his big old old house away up on the hill top.
That curious book , a very large book bound with thick worked leather , inlayed with pearls and gems , Burgundy velvet marker ribbons and shinny brass plateing with a title engraved as "OF ALL THINGS concerning the goblin tree" .
The child's fingers worked the book loose from the shelf but the child's hand was too small to grasp hold of it , then strangely the book seemingly moved on its own and it fell from the high shelf down to the floor with an oddly soft thud.
Even more odd was that it fell very slow motion as if time itself slowed , colors and sparkles swirled around , whispers , giggles , tinker-bells , chimes were heard and then the child felt dizzy . Just then an old but still strong mans arm and hand reached up and caught the child from falling and gracefully sat the child down . The old old uncle closed the book , put it away in a stained glass cabinet and locked it with a key from a chain of many keys.
"Easy easy child , that is no book for a child to face alone but stories from it I will tell , speak child , what would you like to know about ?"
" Uncle " said the child , " where is the goblin tree ?'

Re: The Goblin Tree

Once upon a time , on the world of Somewhere's Else a youthful magician in the awkward teen years who was a bit shy and somewhat bumbling wanted to make his own little kingdom . He'd be the king and have subjects to rule over and no one would tell what to do . It always seemed [ to him anyway ] as if it was that way in which his elders treated him , which really wasn't the case at all .
His name is Oudustee { pronounced ; Od ust see } Oudy for short . What Oudy didn't understand was that his elders were just teaching him the right ways to work the right magic . They didn't want him to make bad judgments and make mistakes yet it was to happen anyway because he was not listening to their wisdom .
So one night Oudy snuck up to the 'vine of creativity ' which grows upon the wisdom wall along the halls of wizards . With a quick swipe he cut a leaf and seedling from it and put it in a small sack attached to his waistband , just then a whisper came from the wall and said " NO! NO! you're making a mistake , mischief begets mischief !" but Oudy heeded not .
Now he went far out away from everything else , bringing with him many bells and whistles of the magical kind : he set out the potions and incenses and then as his usual self , he tripped over his staff wand in the proceedings . Black birds of different species circled the sky above in the early morning just before the dawning of the day , as he laid out his book of magic tricks .
His idea was to make a golden tree and golden little creatures would live there and Oudy would be their king . They would obey his orders and do as he commanded. They would perform funny little tricks and entertain him whenever he wished it so .
So he got out the small velvet sack and dumped out the leaf and seedling onto the ground within the symbol he scribed there and then he quickly wrote down the incantation .
What he meant to write was;
Golden tree golden tree
come to be
right here where I plant
golden creatures with happy smiles
to make tricks with fun styles
right here where I plant

But he miss spelled golden into goblin and something came into being that would cause much trouble in the land of Somewhere's Else ; he had brought into being - the goblin tree the home of the goblin kin !

Re: The Goblin Tree

The seedling sprung up very quickly as the sun made its appearance and when the sun saw the tree growing , it frowned down upon the sapling and Oudy as well .Oudy felt so ashamed , yet he still was not fully aware of his mistake and what was to be .
The tree was not golden at all , but a mossy moldy dark green as it grew more and more , the branches became willowy and they were hanging with shaggy mosses and it got a ghostly pale green grey mist around it . Oudy tried many spells and charms to reverse it but was too late , what comes to be comes to be and the consequences have to be dealt with.
Then an even more shocking event happened , a hole opened up at the bottom of the tree trunk and out of the hole appeared the goblin creatures. Snickering , sneering they were and they mocked at Oudy saying "tell us tell us , tell us what to do , it MUST be fun 'n' games , it MUST be bad OH tricks to play and trouble to make !!!
And these creatures were not at all golden , but like the tree were of muddy greens and the had the nastiest grins . Everything Oudy told them to do they mocked and turned to doing nasty tricks of their own desire but he would make counter measures and correct the goblins mischievous deeds. Soon though things got out of hand and overwhelmed him and scattered going this way and that out into the lands , causing much havoc and mayhem in their paths.
Oudy would have to go to the halls of wizards and admit to his foolishness in order to get help in solving his mess which meant he'd be punished for it . He would be no coward about it and do what it would take to make a right out of a wrong and surely he learned an important lesson out of it. So he dashed off to the great hall of wizards and found the elders waiting for him . Of course by now they knew all about what unfolded in the early morning of that day.

Re: The Goblin Tree

The elders , though it pained them so , questioned Oudy harshly throughout the very long day and in the evening they went up into the great council chambers and worked out some magic of their own and weighed out the judgement and punishment . The magic the elders made was done to keep all the goblins together as a group so that none could ever stray far from the others and to be bounded to their tree and cannot stray far from that either. The goblins eventually loopholed that by tunneling deep into the ground , though they found they couldn't surface anywhere else.
The punishment on young Oudy was he now had to maintain all the mischief the goblins made , correcting the trouble they cause , until he earns his wisdom and learns a way to resolve the whole mess .
Ages later , it came to pass , for Oudustee mastered his learning , becoming at last a wizard befriending and helping many in his now earned realm in the lands of somewhere's Else. Most notable was befriending the king of the lords of clouds working out a problem among the trolls of Grumbel Garble , enjoying the company of faerie and elves, performing simple magic tricks at the 'The Mosaic Dragon '. His magicians name Oudustee he outgrew , when he became a wizard then his name became Oddis Sea.
So now we come to these days when the time came for his greatest challenge , to resolve his youthful mistake because it was very upsetting when the goblins pulled their worst stunt to date. It was with the breaking up of the moon in which Oddis Sea sent a vision out to night-mare for aid in correcting a most disastrous act of mischief of all their time . He had to turn around a very nasty deed through hard work it would be.
The goblins had after that event and with the singeing of their tree by the sun, had gone deep into the ground , hiding and keeping low for awhile. Yet they still were causing mischief by creating unwanted steams and mists to spout out of the ground.
When Oddis Sea checked into this and found the goblin tree unoccupied , he brought out his most highly important wizards notebook titled " OF ALL THINGS concerning the goblin tree " dipped his finely crafted drafting pen made by the great crafters of Seven-mazes Isle, into his mystical ink and drew the tree into the notebook , actually drawing it into the book. Every line he drew onto the page , it erased that line from the physical world . Not so long that he was done that goblins appeared out from the ground beneath his feet and then began running circles all about Oddis Sea 's blue mantel cloak .
[I "Wheres the the goblin tree , wheres the goblin tree "[/i] they ranted and raved as they ran around and around .Oddis Sea opened the book , waved his hand above it and spoke an enchantment....................
.............................
the goblins went faster and faster into a burring speed , shrinking smaller and smaller and with a final flash went into the goblin tree in the wizards book and he shut it tight and locked the latch !

FINISH

Re: The Goblin Tree

Many years have now gone by , the old willow tree in the park is still as great as ever. But those five youngsters , well they are no longer youngsters , in fact they are now elders . Over the years they aged and built families of their own and moved to where ever life would take them yet every now and then a letter arrives from each to the other. Then one day when they were 'getting up in years' those five gathered one last time under the canopy of that big ole willow in the park............
And those stories that they told there , well they certainly were the grandest ever , but that's between them and the tree !

BYE
