Once upon a time, a man lived outside his village.
He was called Ugly Stick.
Anyone who saw him died in shock.

All he ever wanted was to be loved.

He begged the witch, undead and beautiful, to make him handsome.

She requested his spices so he gave her it
She requested his money so he gave her it
She requested his clothes so he gave her it

The witch cooked them in her pot and gave him some.

His face was goodness incarnate.
The witch died from his gaze.

Those too ugly and too beautiful will never be loved.
