Introduction: Sweet Forest
“Look, these aren’t trees.” “Well, not the usual ones.” “Should we try them?” “Well, a chocolate leaf wouldn’t hurt, right?” The children reached for a low brand and ate, expectedly, more than a few leaves. They were sweet with only a touch of bitterness as an aftertaste. It was great chocolate and they didn’t stop with the dark tree before them. They started plucking leaves from the many plants made fully out of confectionery and trying the different flavours; some sweeter, others fruity and many more varieties. It was an open air sweet shop!
Leaf by leaf, bite by bite, plant by plant the children went further, deeper into the forest. For all the sweetness they could see they started to notice the light change and the surroundings becoming sourer. They looked around but there was no way of knowing where they were. “What if we check the missing leaves on the branches?” “Good idea. We can follow our way back that way.” They searched but all in vain: no plant was missing a leaf. “What’s going on? It’s as if we didn’t eat a single leaf!” They started to get nervous and one broke a branch in anger. They saw with open mouths how the chocolate branch reformed as if the liquid were being poured on thin air.
“What sort of place is this?” “How can we go back home?” It must’ve been the suffering in their pleading because a tall and thin tree turned towards them and with a face dotted in sweets and a beard made of chantilly smiled towards the children. “Do not worry, I will guide you back the way you came.” The tree started walking and the children followed automatically. “These woods can be tricky, too much to eat all around so you never know when to stop. If I didn’t control myself I would be fat like one of these little guys!” The gingerbread man on his shoulder frowned with a smile.
The children ran towards the path that lead to their village but turned after a few paces. They looked at the forest and it looked just like any normal set of trees with a worn path leading towards it. None of them thought about returning to check if what they saw was right. They ran to the village and scattered to their respective houses. Understandably, any parent that listened to their story didn’t believe them but their grandparents listened with a smirk. One grandmother winked when they finished. “I once went to that forest when I was a child too. They even had cakes and caramel grass. How I’d like to go back once.” It was to be the beginning of another adventure.
