 The Truth Behind a Tale - Part 1

What if you were told that every Fairy tale and nursery rhyme you ever read was one big lie? What if you were told that there were no wolves in the woods and witches in candy houses? Well read on, for this is the real story and it begins as all good stories do…

Once upon a time in a small thatched house down on Drury Lane, there lived a baker and his son. This was no ordinary boy though. He was the fastest boy in the whole village! There was no man, nor woman or boy or even girl who could beat him in such a fancy. With such a speed, the baker’s boy often ran the baker’s goods all around the village. Nevertheless the baker’s boy’s favourite job was the run he did off into the woods.

Out in the woods, no one was there to see him. No one to mock his cookie coloured skin. No one to laugh as birds picked at the trail of crumbs he would leave behind as he trudged through the town square. His father had always told him to walk through the town square. He was only to run out in the woods. Although he walked the cobblestone streets, his fellow neighbours watched and laughed behind his back.

Down the trails he walked, walked, walked with the only person to not frown upon him. Her name was Little Red Riding Hood. Every week on a Saturday morning, Little Red Riding Hood would deliver food to her sickly old grandma. Grandma was the kindest lady one would ever meet. In between two oak trees, her house lay peacefully in the shade, birds singing and humming the songs of the wind.

As he grew so did his affections for her. On a warm spring day, down in the woods, the two were married. With no money, nor home, the baker’s boy and his new wife moved back home with his beloved father. It was not long before they gave birth two lovely twins; one a boy and one a girl. Both got their mother’s hair of brown and both got the baker’s boy’s eyes of candy green. But neither of them were born with his cookie coloured skin.

Soon, however, the baker’s boy’s happiness faded as the baker died, leaving the boy and his family to toil day and night in their old thatched house, making bread and baking goods for all the villagers to eat. With this slow decline into sadness, Little Red Riding Hood never ceased her visits to her loving Grandma.

One day, however, sometime later, whilst on one of these visits, Little Red Riding Hood disappeared into the woods with no trace to be found.

Long and hard the Bakers boy searched; day after day night after night. But no matter how far he roamed, Little Red Riding Hood was nowhere to be found. It was not long before the villagers blamed the baker’s boy for her disappearance.

All the King’s horses, and all the King’s men were sent with warrants for his arrest. Seeing anger in the eyes of each King’s men, the baker’s boy ran, leaving his children in the care of his dearest friend Pinocchio. He wasn’t scared nor did he fear for his family. He only feared losing his dearest wife. With time running out, off he ran, faster than a hare, with all the Kings horses and all the Kings men close behind. With a loud voice he yelled back.

“Run, run, run as fast as you can. You can’t catch me…”
