A little fairy tale on why you shouldn't trust strangers

Once upon a time, there was a young girl named Annie, Annie loved and trusted everyone around her. She lived in a small cabin on a mountainside with her pet frog, Croaks. One day, little Annie had to take a trip to her grandfather's house, she had to walk there and was given no directions. All she knew was that his house was far below the mountain, in the forest below, people told Annie that the forest was magical and there were evil talking animals in it. Once she got down the mountain, she looked at the paths she could take to try to find her grandfather's house, she saw Golden Path, Silver Path, and Diamond Path were the names of the paths. Annie heard a rustle in the bushes around her, and all of a sudden a troll popped out of the bushes! "Hello, friend!" The troll said, "Hello!" Annie replied. "Lost?" Asked the troll, "Yes actually." Annie replied. "Well then let me give you a tip on where to go, my name's Travis, Travis the troll. Everyone who lives in this here magical forest lives down Silver Path, just go all the way down the path and take a right and you should find anyone you may be looking for." Travis the troll replied. "Thank you so much Mr. Travis!" Annie said, "No problem, kid!" Annie had never seen Travis the troll and didn't know him but decided to trust him anyway, this would prove to be a big mistake later on though. She headed down Silver Path and took a right, but didn't see anyone, or any houses, she saw only a cave with a door that had a 'please knock' sign on it. She knocked and a big, furry bear answered the door, "Hello. What do you want?" The bear said. "I'm looking for my grandfather! Are you my grandfather?" Annie replied. The bear saw his chance to make his next meal out of Annie. "Well, yes I am!" The bear said, but he was lying, he only wanted more food, "Come in, little girl!" He said. As Annie entered, the bear suggested that she would taste great with steak sauce, Annie replied with a chuckle. After this, the bear showed his teeth, and Annie shouted and ran for help, but the bear caught up and ate Annie. Moral of the story: never trust strangers, even if they seem like friendly trolls or bears.
