Sleeping Beauty's Castle Ruins
Ivy grew up the scorched walls so densely that its evergreen vines hung like a curtain over the doorway. The tower was the only part of the castle that had survived the fire nearly unscathed. The inside was swarming with bats, and the rope ladder he had installed years earlier shimmered through the darkness. The Elves always left their dust on it as if to remind him that he had once come down here from another world.
Nowhere did the roses grow as densely around the circular walls of the tower. Their blossoms were of such a dark red that the night tinged them almost black, and their scent hung heavily in the cold air, as if they did not feel the autumn. Jacob already knew what he would find under the pointed roof before he started climbing the steep spiral stairs. He had to keep freeing his boots form the thorny tendrils, but finally he was standing in front of the room where, two hundred years earlier, a Fairy had delivered her birthday present. The spinning wheel stood next to a narrow bed that had never been meant for a princess. The body that lay on it was covered with rose petals. The Fairy's curse had kept it from aging, but the princess's skin was like parchment and nearly as yellowed as the dress she'd been wearing for two centuries. The embroidered pearls still shimmered in brilliant white, but the lace at the hem had turned as brown as the petals that covered the silk.
...Beware of the Gold Ravens and Stilts...
