Advent Puzzle 13 Solved! Cryptic Clue: Unlocked!

Post by Blackvision » Tue Dec 13, 2016 5:52 pm

Molly nudged Jan-Piet, nodding towards where Harry was sat, and had been sat for the last hour.

'What's up with him?'

Jan-Piet chuckled. 'Phillipe got a boxfrom someone in the mail - told Harry he could have whatever was in it if he could open it - turns out there's some sort of trick to it.'

Molly walked over the Harry, who was puling and tugging at sliding wooden plates on the outside of the box - with no apparent result. Molly watched him for a moment, then grinned.

'Bet you I could open it.' Harry, who was looking rather annoyed, pushed it over to her. 'Good luck with the damn thing. It's broken, I swear!' He muttered.

Molly examined it briefly, considering, then winked to Harry. 'Ten gold I can open it within a minute.' Harry laughed. 'Ha! You're on!'

Molly grinned, then pulled her spear out and slammed it down between the wooden slats, and, with a wrench, split the box in two. Harry objected 'But that's not completing it!'

Molly shrugged. 'Never said I had to do anything except open it- though you can keep the gold. I want that instead!' She scooped up the paper within triumphantly: 'Challenge puzzle 13: Molly's' Challenge'.
