A Tale of Love with Hector, Prince Kai, & Gilbert Blythe!
Here is a bookish Mad Lib for your Saturday afternoon/evening. This is the last challenge of the day, and I had to come up with corresponding words for the blanks—I have placed them in bold for you to see. I had my good friend read the words I needed, so I did not look at the story before I filled in the blanks! Enjoy and have some laughs! Check out the other Bookish Mad Libs at Kate’s Tales of Books and Bands.
One day, I was dancing with Hector. Out of the blue, a treasure chest came out of nowhere! It was so elegant, tricky, and scary! At first, we were afraid, we were petrified, but we galloped. We hopped on a horse and buggy to make our getaway.
As we escaped, we turned up the radio because “New York, New York” came on and made me write Everything was extremely smooth sailing until a snow leopard appeared in the middle of the road. We swerved to avoid it, but while Hector stayed on the horse and buggy, I got thrown onto my side in the woods.
I couldn’t get up and felt superfluous as I lay there staring up at the trees. What was I going to do? I heard a scream among the leaves, and felt happiness. Surely, this was going to be my end. As my eyes fluttered shut, the last thing I saw was a head of lavender hair and turquoise eyes.
When I woke again, I was on a fainting couch. My body hurt a whole lot less, and I could sit up. There was an eyeshadow palette and a kitchenaid stand mixer in the room, along with red velvet cake and a mojito. The door suddenly opened to reveal Prince Kai, a concerned look on his face. I blushed and averted my gaze, but he painted, and said, “Don’t be shy. It’s ok.”
He came over to sit by me, and we started talking after I told him my name. We chatted about scrapbooking, traveling, and stamp collecting and realized we had a ton in common. I thought he was luminous and couldn’t help feeling a little swoony.
Just as he reached out for my hand, the door crashed open and in came Gilbert Blythe. “Don’t let him charm you away, my love!” He yelled, running at Prince Kai. They each had a muffin tin in their hands and began to fight. “Stop!” I yelled, feeling so hopeful. They didn’t listen to me. Before I could intervene, Prince Kai fell to the floor and disappeared in a cloud of smoke.
“What was that?” I asked, staring at the empty space. Gilbert Blythe dropped his weapon, and came over to me. “Magic, but you are safe now, dear.” He hugged me close, and I suddenly knew that this was the real deal and not just a dream.
Just as “It Had to Be You” started playing in my head, I woke up. I cursed my sparkly luck. Why had it only been just a dream?
