'Jack, cut it down!' yelled Mary, as she gazed up at the beanstalk.
'I'm trying to!' replied Jack. He was trying to cut down the gigantic beanstalk, but it was too late.
'You stole my harp!' the giant boomed, as he landed onto the ground.
'I was dared to!' exclaimed Jack, but the giant didn't care. In his eyes Jack was a thief and an enticing dinner.
'Fee-fi-fo-fum,' he began as he advanced menacingly.
'Try this!' called Mary desperately, passing Jack a can of deodorant. He sprayed. The giant stopped.
'I smell the… scent of spring gardens!'
