Unbeta-ed. All mistakes are mine.
Once upon a time, in the land far far away, there was a wizard named Kyuhyun.
Unlike any other wizards, Kyuhyun was young and chubby. He had no beard and no magic pointy hat. What he had instead, was a magic strawberry. This strawberry was the only reason he was a wizard. It can be a powerful weapon, give eternal life to its owner and can satisfy Kyuhyun’s hunger in just one bite (the strawberry replenishes itself).
Knowing this, Kyuhyun chose to dwell in the forest, away from prying eyes and ears. Few people had seen him, much less talked with him. And so he became myth, and myth became legend, and for five hundred years Kyuhyun hid in the forest so deep, only he knew the way.
Then, rumors grew in the east, of a countess in the northern castle who was said to demand young virgins to be given to the castle every month. Terror haunted the surrounding villagers, for they loved their young and mothers weep when none returned. They had taken arms against the Countess, but alas, what could peasants do to rebel such an army?
Words spread throughout the kingdom, many had tried to help. But it was all in vain. The Countess was undefeatable. And so no one dared to fight her.
The young wizard knew, his strawberry was undefeatable, for it held a power like none other, and this might be his only chance to help. He then embarked on the journey, swiftly escaping from prying eyes and dangers, determined to demand an audience with the Countess.
Days turned into nights, nights turned into weeks, and finally he came upon a weeping old man.
“Dear sir,” Kyuhyun spoke, “the sun shone brightly, and the birds sang. Will you smear the beautiful day with tears?”
“I will,” the old man replied, “for the beautiful day have turned into one of sadness. My daughter was captured by an evil countess and she will not return to me, none of them have.”
Kyuhyun knew what the old man spoke of, but he pretended not to, for he was eager to gain more information of the Countess. “Well! A countess, you say? Who is she? And what does she want with your daughter?”
The old man stopped weeping. He took a good look at the young and chubby Kyuhyun. “You must come from faraway lands, dear stranger, if you have not heard of Countess Elizabeth Batory. She is the devil herself. Every month she demands for young virgins, males and females, ten of each, and took them to her castle. No one knew what she did with them, but the servants have heard screams echoing in the halls, bloods spilled on the stone floors.”
Kyuhyun gulped. It was worse than he thought, and now he began to fear the Countess.
He then saw the old man shivered and Kyuhyun offered him his cloak. “Dear sir, please use this. It may compare very little compared to your daughter, but it shall keep you warm.”
And so Kyuhyun continued his journey. Far, far, far into the path he walked, crossing rivers and hiding in caves. Finally he reached the castle. It was a towering structure, guarded by armed guards and crows crowing in the sky. Statues of gargoyles and goblins stood all around, and Kyuhyun once heard the statues came into life at night.
He then marched towards the gate and spoke loudly. “I demand an audience with the Countess!” What he did not expect though, was one of the guards struck him with his long spear and so Kyuhyun was captured.
They took him to the dungeons, where they kept the young virgins prisoners. Only seven of them left now, all females. They all wept day and night, for they knew it was only a matter of time before they soon too, would be taken to the Countess. They told him of what happened to the prisoners. The Countess drew their blood and bathe in it, to keep her beauty and youth eternally. And so the prisoners weep.
But alas, Kyuhyun too, began to weep, for he soon discovered that he had lost his magic strawberry. It was in the cloak that he gave to the old man and in his exhaustion, he had forgotten of the magic strawberry. And so here he was, powerless, despite being a wizard.
One by one the females were taken by the Countess, and soon enough, it was only Kyuhyun left. The Countess’ personal guards that took the girls had said that it would be his turn next, and so Kyuhyun accepted his fate, and he knew he would meet death soon. There was to be no way he could escape the castle alive, for they bind him with the strongest chains and only the Countess had the key.
On his last night, a night guard spoke to him. “Hello,” he said, “I’m new here. My name is Siwon and I will be your guard for tonight.”
Kyuhyun, always a polite young man, replied, “Hello. I am Kyuhyun and I am a wizard.”
“A wizard!” Siwon exclaimed, “How can you be captured then?”
“I intended to stop the Countess, for she brought despair and sadness, but I lost my magic along the way.”
“That is unfortunate indeed,” Siwon said, “I don’t suppose you have other magic?”
The young and chubby wizard shook his head sadly. “I do not wish to die, for I am still young.”
Siwon pondered as he patted his iron sword thoughtfully. “There is a way to make the Countess changed her mind. You see, she only wants virgins and it is only their blood that can keep her youth. We, the guards, are not virgins and that is the reason why she does not want our blood. So perhaps we can un-virgin you?”
Kyuhyun’s eyes widened in delight. “Is there really a way? Oh do help me please, I wish to escape and continue to live.”
“Well it is settled then!” Siwon smiled brightly, “I shall come into your cell and we shall do the deed!”
That night, the guard Siwon bedded the young wizard, and when the morning came, the Countess’ personal guards were horrified when they realized their last prisoner not a virgin. Quickly they threw him out of the castle and soon they were on their way, to look for more virgins in the surrounding villagers.
For the young wizard Kyuhyun, he had escaped death. Accompanied by the guard Siwon (he resigned from his position at the castle), they looked for the old man who had Kyuhyun’s cloak. Far, far, and far they looked, but alas, they could not find him. Siwon said it was fate.
And so the tale ended, for Kyuhyun decided that he would grow old with the guard. The two lived together in the forest where Kyuhyun first dwell, where Kyuhyun re-learned his magic and Siwon provided him with everything he needed, only for the happiness of the young and chubby wizard.
