Page after page, word after word: witches, goblins, bandits and strangers, forests, rivers, and unexplored places, things appearing, characters disappearing. The plot thickens and becomes a mystery story. Enchantments, accidents and kidnappings that even the police and the army cannot foil. At the very end, a stranger will be able to find the kidnapped queen and rescue the town. An engaging story that Blexbolex creates basing on geometric progression: seven chapters and only three words at the start grow up to one hundred twenty-nine at the finish line.
