Note: This is 100% fiction!
Few knows about the castle hidden inside the island but I’ll bet that no one knows that the castle isn’t even on the island but beneath it. Yes, you heard right, beneath, and trust me, explorers have tried to scour the island for the castle, they’ve all failed. Most of them got swallowed by the quicksand while others, well, let’s just say they became a blank slate.
Those men and women thought they could conquer anything. Oh yeah, just stand still and the quicksand won’t swallow you. Here’s the thing, the quicksand on the island is different. It has a mind of its own and can judge you and determine whether to allow you to discover the castle, kill you or make you my slave.
How do I know this?
Because I am its master. Everything, from the quicksand to the tree traps, rigged to catch idiots, is mine. This is my home and I am the queen.
