Go to chapter one..
A good bit of this story is my own, using CH’s characters, Eric and Sookie, of course, sands the supernatural elements. The rest is from S. Morgenstern’s classic tale of true love and high adventure, The Princess Bride/the “good parts” version, abridged by William Goldman. Morganstern’s original words will be proceeded and ended with asterisks. I claim no rights to either CH’s characters and words or Morgenstern’s. No infringement is intended.
I used many of Morganstern’s words because, well, you just can’t beat them and I wanted to stick close to the heart of the story, at least with this first chapter. I urge you, if you haven’t read the abridged version, to PLEASE do so. BEST BOOK EVER! I plan on veering off at bit here and there, but hope to continue in the classic true love, high adventure vein.
