Goss Once upon a time there lived a very evil king. His name was King Treble Clef, because his body looked a lot like a treble clef...
Goss King Treble Clef ruled THE LAND OF STAFF. It was surrounded by a fence made of 5 bars. He made a person live on each bar to protect him. They could move on their bars, but could not visit each other. F D B G E
Because King Treble Clef was very mean, he wouldn’t let them have real names, only letter names.He called them E, G, B, D, and F, after his favorite foods. Goss F D B G E
Goss His favorite foods were Eggplant, Grits, Bologna, Doughnuts and French Fries! F D B G E
Goss He would never let them leave the fence for anything!!! So, E G B D and F had to stay on those bars forever! F D B G E
Goss And they are still there even today! F D B G E
Goss But then something amazing happened. One day, King Treble Clef overheard his people talking about how mean he was. It hurt his feelings, so he decided to change. He wanted to try being a nice king. No one could believe it! Everyone was overjoyed!
Goss He decided to let them leave the fence for one day to go shopping! He even gave them each some money to spend!
However, there was nowhere to shop in the Land of Staff, so in between where E G B D and F lived, King Treble Clef hired someone to build a 4 story mall! Goss F D B G E
