The Riddler's Curse Series
Story 1: The Coffee Shop (Jana will have this ~ , and Riddle shall have ^ that, when they speak. If you are confuse it will make more sense later one.)
~"So what made you come over here, and sit down across from me, With a hot mug in your hand?"
^When you sit in a cafe like we are now, what do you hear?
~"People making coffee?"
^It doesn't have to do with the mouth, and yet it does.
~"Ah, so you came here to talk?”
^My ears heard a voice that came from your mouth,To the pouring boy.
It’s a question, a question that I have knowledge of.
But I won’t give it to you easily.
Chapter Notes: this is the setting at present.
Chapter 3: Who Are They?
~"Alright. In the simplest way possible, tell me your name?"
^Read the words from right to left,
and you’ll have my answer:
.mine know shall you, name your have I once.
^My name starts with R and ends in iddle.
~“Riddle is an interesting name.”
But your hands are shaking,
Your heart is racing,
And your legs will shake next.
What feeling is this?
And why do you express this emotion?
^Yes. However that is only one.
What is the other answer I seek?
~“Your other answer is something that I don’t want to talk about.”
^Alright, here is something to ease your troubled mind:
I am on shapes, and people see me.
People ask this frequently:
"What's your favourite___?"
It has a C and L with three
If you can find the question, answer it.
^Still trying to find the missing letters?
~”Yes, and I am usually good at these too.”
^I can tell.
I'll give you a hint:
The second last letter in the word “Letters,”
Is at the end of the word you are looking for.
~"Ah, what’s your Favourite Color?"
~"If I could choose any color, it would have to be blue. And yours?"
^It’s ever changing like the weather above.
Since the chairs and tables are
the same color as dark soil,
That is when I am happy.
Since the walls are the same colors
as the sky and clouds,
That is when I am sad.
Since the outfits of the waiter and
waitresses match the night sky,
That is when I am protective, for
reasons I cannot share.
~“So let me get this straight,
Brown is when you’re happy, blue and white are when you’re sad,
And navy or black is when you are protective?”
~“Why can’t you share the reasons you’re protective?
I would love to know.”
^Your mind thinks, how you would feel about what you want to know.
But your mind only knows what it’s told. With that said, I shall riddle you this:
What is clear, that you cannot see?
Which only makes you fear,
I know the answer, and that is your reply.
~“And how do you feel about this, your answer?”
Be careful what you ask or the horrors will come at last.
~“Thanks for the warning; I guess we can skip that question. But here’s another: Why do you speak in riddles?”
^Fine.I shall riddle you this:
Who am I?
What have I seen?
What did they do to keep it hidden from me
Me? No, not me...
Everyone that can see,
that can hear far and near
Now I am the only one who is cursed,
Cannot speak without riddling things.
~“Oh, so it’s a curse that makes you speak like this.
Thanks. Um… I have to go now; I hope we can meet agai-”
^I wouldn’t do this:
I stand up and walk,
To a door that is not locked.
If that is what your planning on
~“If you are implying that I shouldn’t run away, I am not going to listen.”
~“I work for the newspaper which I assume you already know, and they told me:
‘That once you figure out the reason he speaks in riddles, to leave.’
I wasn’t too happy with them when they told me that.
To be honest, I want to stay and chat.”
^Your boss is a smart man to send a beautiful young lady, To question a young man like me. However you should do what you want. You don’t have a choice.If you go,they will be sure to follow, So I suggest you listen.
~“Alright, I’ll sit back down…only if you promise me something?”
^My answer is this:
It’s another word for Differ,
For what you ask.
~“So depending on what my favor is, you’ll do it?”
~“Okay. You have to answer every question I ask, or I leave. Also, I promise your answer won’t be published in the newspaper.”
^If you leave, it would be worse than if you stay,So my answer would be the following:
It has a S at the end with a Y at
~“Yes! Okay, riddle me this: Why do you look so unhappy?”
^My dear, you’re beautiful,
and this is what I don’t want to happen to you:
Damaged done by the rain,
But if you place the word that
starts R With you, and “by the”
~“Why don’t you want damage done to me?”
^It is rare to feel what is below:
Your presence is another word for,
~“Thanks, I’m flattered, but who are they? You keep talking about them.”
^You say you’re a journalist, so you should know the three stories.
They are bonded like brothers, like worlds, like lovers.
But “They” has two meanings.
One starts with S and the other starts with T.
~“If you mean the stories, as in the three people that went missing, then
They are both connected.”
Ignore what I have said, but secretly listen, there is a lot of stuff that you have been missing.
~“So everything you just said was a lie?”
~“Riddle Me This then, what are they going to do to me now?”
^They will simply not touch you,
For this what we are going to do:
Run, run, run as fast you can,
To the little house of the bearded
~“Great, so I am getting kidnapped. Or are we running away?”
^The one after “or” is correct.
That is our answer, to another word
for issue. Now listen close, this is a warning for you:
If you see things that shouldn't be
there, be scared and be aware.
~“Thanks again for the warning, but do you know this person? Or are you just spitting out solutions, to this problem I unknowingly created?”
^The first question is a yes, the last one is the opposite.
~“Oh. Should I be frightened? Or should I trust you on this one?”
^What you chose is up to you,
But think about this:
The only reason why you are in this mess in the first place, is because of me.
So would you trust the Villain, or The Liar? If The Liars me.
~“I would choose the liar, since he is the one who knows where we are going.”
And as to why,
I cannot say.
