The second beanstalk
Jack’s second beanstalk was planted well away from his mother’s house. A whole other country away.
What Jack saw was a desolate, towering, black alter5. Everything was still huge, which made climbing steps of the alter difficult, but this place hadn’t been touched in some time. It had been stripped of its magic6.
Jack rushed back to the beanstalk realizing he should cut down this one too. He would lock9 his remaining beans away and not plant another bean again for the rest of his life.
