Lost

Leaning on his fence, Dylan watched the tourists strut through the village. Armed with backpacks and hiking poles, they approached him to ask for directions. He happily obliged and winked at Old Marge who was sitting on the front porch.

An hour later, the baffled tourists stared at the thick bush of brambles blocking the road.

“Lost your way, lads, did you?” Marge walked up to them from a barely visible side path.

Relieved, the tourists nodded.

“Just follow me.” She led them to a branch-off. “Go around that rock outcrop and you’ll see your destination.”

The tourists waved and wandered off.

Marge sat down and waited. After a while, the ground shook. A mountain troll stomped towards her.

“Did they have money?” Marge asked

“Nope, only gadgets… they were crunchy though.”

Marge sighed. “All right, we’ll sell the stuff on ebay.”

“Don’t forget my 5%.”

“Wouldn’t dream of it.”
