When was the last time you did a MadLibs? I remember buying the book at my local store and wanting to fill it in with my friends. So Mel, Alexa, Cee and Kirsten has came up with a little mad libs for use to use my imagination.

Once upon a time, in a far away headquarters (1), there lived a smart spy (2). It lived alone in a consignment store (3), where she had grown up with the deceased owner. She had beautiful hands(4), and she was known for her shiny red watch (5), the only thing she had left of her parents.


Alas, the Princess (6) of the country became jealous and wanted to own this watch (7). So, she became a wanted person and had to flee into the forest to find a place to hide. After trolling (8) around for hours, hungry and tired, she stumbled upon a cave (9). An old lady appeared, offering her shelter from the bitter cold.  She looked at her with sadness (10) 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 (11) back. Here is a magical cake (12), throw it into the earth, sprinkle with water and it will sprout a beanstalk. You have 15 (13) days to return before the stalk withers." 

She 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, she saw a huge mansion (14). She walked to the door and knocked. A whiny (15) voice said: 'Fee-fi-fo-fum, who dares to come and enter my house?" She was not afraid and said: "My name is Jamie and I've come to collect an item." 

The door made a whooshing (16) sound when it opened and revealed a large veranda (17) filled with golden gadgets (18).  She 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, she 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 a baggy black hooded jacket (19)
"What happened to you?" She 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 to spy (20) so I can break the spell, but I'm not brave enough."

"If you give me the piano (21), I will help you."

In keeping its promise, the beast and she 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 a waiter (22) 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.
