Agnes Gathers Herself

By Anushka Haakonson










First Line:
After losing her head, she realized that the rest of her body was falling apart!

Gathering herself against the spell, Agnes stifled a sob. She had to solve the riddle to save everyone from evil King Morethanluck. Agnes tried logic next, which never came easily to her and took her courage to summon.

A baby’s romper and two arms from a dismembered doll… What could the murdered seer have meant?

A romper, two arms…dismembered doll. Then Agnes noticed the half-hidden foot.

A romper or maybe a jumper? Two arms, a foot…

Agnes could feel the solution straining to get into her consciousness, even as the magic tried to pull her apart.

She had it! A jump to arms was a foot! The seer had organised it! All Agnes needed to do was spread the message…

And she knew exactly how to do it!

Agnes allowed the spell to disintegrate her body, freeing her spirit to ride the wind and make the call to arms.
