As you're hiking through the forest you approach a tree that looks a little different than the rest. At the base of the tree it looks like there's a brown door...
You open the door and crawl [[inside]]
You investigate the tree. You look closely at the bark and reach your hand out to touch the [[tree bark]]
You emerge from total darkness into a world of colour and candy! The tree you came through is taffy, and the bushes in front of you are cotton candy!
A small marshmallow chick approaches you frantically yelling "You must find the CandyLand Castle, you must find the CandyLand Castle!!!"

You [[take off]] instinctively after the chick
You stand frozen in place [[confused]] with your new surroundings.You're too slow for the chick and you lose sight of it. You're out of breath so you stop to catch your breath.
A little way in the distance you can hear music.
As you're listening, you see some bushes russle to your left.
You take off to investigate
[[the source of the music]] or [[the bushes]]
<audio src="http://184.108.40.206/ost/super-mario-bros/emwlroey/08%20-%20Water%20World.mp3" autoplay>You take your time taking in your surroundings. You see trees made of taffy, bushes of cotten candy, and vines of licorice.
But once the chick is gone you see no other moving or living beings... you have no sense of which way you came from or which way to go.As you put your hand on the tree bark you can feel that it is sticky.
Uh oh, this isn't just regular tree sap, the tree is made of taffy and you can't pull your hand away.
You yell for your friends to come and rescue you.
A beautiful girl in a blue dress approaches you.
"Oh hi there! You don't look familiar. Are you a friend of my sister Princess Lolly? Are you here for her birthday party?"
"uh no, I'm actually looking for the Candyland Castle. I think that's
how I get home."
"Oh! Well why don't you stay for the party and I'll take you there when I go home! I'm Princess Frostine!"
You say "I'd really appreciate you [[taking me there Princess Frostine!]] Thank you!"
You Say "Oh thank you, but I should be [[on my way.]]"

You lean into the bushes only to see a big hole.
Hoping to see whats inside you lean a [[little closer]].
You go don't see anything else so you head back towards the [[the source of the music]]
You lean too far and slide down the hole.
When you finally hit the ground and scrambble to your feet you are back on [[your forest path. ->Search for the CandyLand Castle]]
You start talking to guests at the party and are having a lot of fun.
Although you're starting worry that you've been gone for so long and you'll never get back home.
Just then an odd man in a red cloak approaches you.
"I'm Lord Licorice. If you want to get home right now I can take you."
You tell him thank you but you'd rather wait for [[Princess Frostine]]
You decide to [[go with him]]You leave the party and wander through the candy forest and eventually get lost.
You'll have to retrace your steps and find your way back to where you [[started->inside]]

You're a long way from home! It's a good thing you decided to go to the Candyland castle though. There are a lot of dangerous ways you could have gone! Plus we've become friends so I'm sure King Kandy will personally want to gift you with something special!
You enjoy the rest of the [[journey to the Candyland castle]] with Princess Frostine
You panic about meeting King Kandy and [[run off]]Lord Licorice is not a trustworthy man. He takes you into the candy forest and when you turn to speak to him, he has vanished.
You are lost again in the candy forest and can't hear the music from the party anymore.
You sit down and wait for another marshmallow chick to run by. <img src="https://www.standingstills.com/pub/media/catalog/product/cache/75eed2686e01eb22cb4050b2f40ddf97/c/a/cac599-1-1.jpg" width="500" height="300" alt="king">
Welcome to the Candyland castle! I'm King Kandy and it is a pleasure to meet you!
I'm so glad you are sweet enough to have the ability to see the door to our kingdom! And you must be very brave for making it all the way here!
I wish to gift you with a key to the kingdom so you can come back anytime you please to visit and eat all the candy you you want!
<audio src="http://18.104.22.168/ost/super-mario-bros/pzzpyoat/12%20-%20World%20Clear.mp3" autoplay>You run off and realize you don't know where to go now.
You sit and wait, hoping Princess Frostine will come find you.
