The Golden Brace

A tale with a twisted backstory

24 October 2022

  • Hugo Kramer, royal calligrapher, toiled away at his desk til the wee hours of the morning, working by candlelight with such dedication that he didn't notice two dark figures approach.

  • As they came closer the dark figures appeared to merge into a singular form. “I need to procure a letter” the form whispered to the calligrapher. Hugo jumped in his chair and found himself looking at a familiar face.

  • What was Quasimodo doing here? Why a letter? Was he hoping to pen a missive to his love, Esmeralda? An impossible dream?

  • Quasimodo walked over to a dark corner and gestured for me to follow him. He handed me a note and on the back of the note: a map. A map to what? I couldn’t guess.

  • Staggering to the conclusion of the route scrawled out on the tattered treasure map, Quasi knew that with the golden sculliosis brace before him, a hunchback he’d no longer be.
