Silly me! I thought, I could play with a troll, just as I play with my adorable puppy, Love. And then, I lost my diamond. Love would have fetched it for me, from anywhere. But Troll ….. this guy hid it in his bushy head, and now complains that the prickly piece of jewellery is hurting him.
It is almost noon, and I am compelled to sit in this cave, as Troll fears turning into stone, if he stays out. Do I really care? But, Mom and Love are waiting for me. I need to get back with the diamond.
