so you've decided to come back
who are you?
answer the question truthfully
your choice would determine the rest of your journey
this route leads to the old family house
One for sorrow, Two for joy,
Three for a girl, Four for a boy,
Five for silver, Six for gold,
Seven for a secret, Never to be told.
Eight for a wish, Nine for a kiss,
Ten for a bird, You must not miss
HIDE AND SEEK
this route leads into the forest
There was an old woman who lived in the woods, weile weile waile.
There was an old woman who lived in the woods, down by the river Saile.
She had a baby three months old, weile weile waile.
She had a baby three months old, down by the river Saile.
She had a penknife, long and sharp, weile weile waile.
She had a penknife, long and sharp, down by the river Saile.
this is the place you used to live in.
it is empty now, you think, and within, walls continue upright, bricks meet neatly, floors are firm, and doors are sensibly shut; silence lays steadily against the wood and stone of your old family home.
a set of keys rests heavily on your pocket.
turn the key to continue
this is the place where you went missing.
maybe it wasn't you, in the end, but some other fool who couldn't remember the way back home. you know the story well enough to know the ending.
you wonder, however, how is it that no one remembers to burn the forest to the ground?
jump the stream to continue
