Chapter 2 – Don’t call me Snow White
Princess Log #3: After getting the bow and arrows, I go back to the bridge and just east of it I see a little house in a tree. I look around the house and this place is a mess. Who in the hell lives in this god forsaken dump? This place looks like it hasn’t been cleaned up in months. I guess I’ll do whoever lives here a favor and clean up this pigsty. First I’ll sweep the floor then I’ll wash the dishes and put them away and make up the beds. I took care of the first two chores and as I go to make up the beds, I notice that there are actually seven of them and they are small. For a place called Congo Bongo Island, it should have been named Fairytale Island instead because I have a feeling that the seven dwarves will be coming home any minute now. I’m just exaggerating the part about the dwarves but after that Frog Prince ordeal I wouldn’t be surprised. Sure enough, after I finished cleaning up the place, a group of seven dwarf miners arrive at their house. They were impressed with how I tidied up their place and they gave me a bowl of soup as a reward.
After they left to do more mining, there was pouch of diamonds on the table. One of them must have left it there by accident. I decided to leave the house and go over to the diamond mine where they were working. I made my way down to the lower level where the head dwarf whom I assume is Doc and gave him the pouch of diamonds. Doc was impressed with my kindness to a point where he let me keep the diamonds and also gave me a lantern. After I left the mine and headed east, I see a bird trying to pull a worm out of its hole. The bird flew away as soon as it saw me and did not get its meal. I guess I’ll take the worm for myself. I may seem like a hoarder but as my dad has taught me about his adventures is that even the tiniest little thing I collect can help me in the long run. Once I have the worm in my possession, I go north and I see what looks like a Haunted Mansion. Haunted Mansions... BAH! Everybody knows that there are no such things as ghosts, vampires, goblins and all that stuff but with the existence of fairies and dwarves, I guess it’s possible.
Chapter 3 – Music not to my ears.
Princess Log #4: I entered the haunted mansion and I see a clock. Upon viewing the time, I can see that I am still early in my quest. I went over the parlor room on the left and here I see a bunch of books on the bookshelf. I figure I got a little bit of time to kill so I think I’ll read the Shakespeare book. I’ve been walking all day and I can rest my wee little legs because I know I got more traveling to do. Before I read I notice sometime thing weird about that portrait over the fireplace. The eyes seem to be looking at the wall on the left. Another thing my dad taught me is that if something looks strange, always investigate it carefully. As I examine the left wall, I see a tiny little switch. I pull on it and a secret door opens. Inside the secret room is a shovel for the taking. After I got the shovel, I went on upstairs and what I nifty little organ they got here. It won’t hurt to play a song on it. It’s still day time so I guess the place is not haunted yet. Once I was done playing the organ, I left the haunted house and vowed to come back during nightfall.
To the west, I see a minstrel playing such awful music on his lute (pear-shaped banjo). I went over to him to strike up a little conversation. He says he was glad to find someone who loved his music. Pfft!! Whatever! He continues to play this god awful music and I wish I was inside of a building so I can ram my head to a wall. I tell him to stop playing and gave him the Shakespeare book I had taken from the haunted castle so he could have a quieter hobby. To save the people from having to hear that annoying music again, I confiscated his lute. Over to the north I see a fisherman house. There is a little boy named Pan who likes to dance and play his flute. At least he got better talent than that awful minstrel. We play a duet as I play the lute and he plays the flute. Pan is very astonished with the lute I am playing and he stops playing his flute. He begs me to let him have the lute so we exchange instruments and I leave the fisherman’s house with as Pan was excited about his brand new instrument.
Chapter 4 – Behind the Waterfall
Princess Log #5: I head south for 2 miles then I look east and I see a waterfall. What a lovely little waterfall it is. I wonder what is behind it. Let's find out. Damn, this current is too strong for me to swim through. If only I was something smaller then I could get through. THAT’S IT! I still have that crown that that rude prince gave to me not too long ago. I put it on, and “POOF!” I am a frog. Now I can swim against the current and see what lies beyond that waterfall. I swim through it and I see what looks like a cave. I guess I won’t need this crown anymore so I’ll take it off. Something tells me I should take this board and in the meantime, I will light up this lantern. As I walk in the cave, I hear a loud growling sound. No, that is not my stomach but it sounds like there is a troll in here. I just have to match my steps carefully and hope he doesn’t see me or I’m a goner. I already see a pile of bones over there. I’ll just take one for later use. Now I just got to go south and make my way out of this cave. The troll is giving chase but luckily he is too slow, I make it to a piece of vine in the nick of time and swing to safety while the troll stumbles into a ditch. HAHA SUCKER! Whew! That was close. I come across a chasm that is very long. It is time to use that board to get across. Now that I am on the other side of the chasm, I’ll take the board back and exit stage north where I see an opening.
Now that I am outside, I come across a swamp when a bunch of marshes. I jump through the marshes and there is one final march that is too far for me to jump. I put the board back down but I have to stop halfway because there is a snake on the other side. I’m glad my name is not Indiana Jones. Time for me to take out the flute I got from Pan and charm it. Good! The snake is in a little trance. Now I can cross the board and get to the last marsh. YIPEE! I got the magical golden apple. I better get a move back to the other side before that snake recovers. I make my back through the cave and I still see the troll still struggling to get out of the ditch. I make my way of the cave and now it is time to get away from this place once and for all. I jump into the waterfall and let the current sweep me away and now I can swim to dry land. I am so glad I got the magical golden apple and my father can be saved. However, my task is only halfway over. I still have to recover Binky’s magic ruby for that evil witch Jezebel or she will die and Jezebel will take over the island. If Binky dies then I’ll be stuck here on Congo Bongo Island and my father will die anyway. Mother... Father... Brother... Binky... Congo Bongo Island... I swear I will not fail you all. I will save all of you even at the cost of my own life if necessary. Jezebel, get ready to meet your maker because I am coming straight at you and I’m taking you down.
