Love-a-Thon Mini-challenge #1:  Mad Libs: Fairytale Edition

This challenge was a lot of fun!  I have loved doing Mad libs since I  was little.  Here is what I came up with.

Once upon a time, in a far away Disney Resort, there lived a smart hero. It lived alone in a Target, where it had grown up with the deceased owner. It had beautiful hearts, and it was known for its shiny red book, the only thing it had left of its parents.

Alas, the prince of the country became jealous and wanted to own this book. So, it became a wanted person and had to flee into the forest to find a place to hide. After jumping around for hours, hungry and tired, it stumbled upon a/an China. An old lady appeared, offering it shelter from the bitter cold.  She looked at it with happiness 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 chocolate cake, throw it into the earth, sprinkle with water and it will sprout a beanstalk. You have 7 days to return before the stalk withers." 

It 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, it saw a huge palace. It walked to the door and knocked. A husky voice said: 'Fee-fi-fo-fum, who dares to come and enter my house?" It was not afraid and said: "My name is Jamie and I've come to collect an item." 

The door made a/an purring sound when it opened and revealed a large sitting room filled with golden flowers.  It 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 it. There were three horns on his head, and hair all over his face and his mouth was filled with large teeth. He wore beautiful

"What happened to you?" It 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 wishing 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 it 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 an audiologist 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 it.

"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.

Can't wait to read everyone else entries, see you in the comments.
