More of Giovanni's wonderful adventure. There is no specific order to the excerpts as of yet, but I think this one comes before Doppelganger. In this excerpt, he is asked to take part in an interesting dining experience, and meets a new friend.
At last! For inquiring minds that want to know what happened to Joen. There's no tale in this chapter, but Joen does manage to make an unusual new friend.
This is from my story Elements of Magic. It is not simply some poem but a warning, written after the near destruction of the winged people called hawkfolk. It happened at night while the hawkfolk slept in their sky city, and very few escaped. The beast was never seen, and so was never given a name. the story is fantasy but the poem is rather dark, so I judged it as being something for horror.
This is a contiuation of the first story, and where the story starts getting a little more exciting. In this chapter Joen encounters a gang of theives who are very persistent in their need to take. When I first planned 'A Tale of Tales' I did it for the sake of the short stories that Joen tells, to make it kind of like a series of some sort. In fact, though I know where the story is going, I have no idea how it is going to end. I did this on purpose, leaving it open to kind of see where it goes. But it will have an end. Joen's next tale is in chapter three.
Here is Joen's next story, a humorous tale of mischief and lessons with a ghost that can't do anything right. I learned about the ghosts called pooks from a book of Irish fairy-tales I have. I'm not sure what the precise legend concerning them is, so I kind of did my own thing. Like it matters though since myths and legends vary so much anyway. Enjoy.
Here is Joen's next story, one that just might get him out of the trouble he is in with Moren and his gang. I'm sorry to say you may be left hanging a little until chapter four. I did this to save space, because the chapter ended up longer than I thought. Any way, this new story of Joen's is a little less pleasent than his first (and a little longer).
