Based on a text session with a friend. I finally finished the fourth book in “The Guardians of Childhood” series, and they basically pulled a Sleeping Beauty with the rock Pitch had been pinned to at the start of the books. It was also revealed that this cave was in America and near a village, which of course led me to thinking “What if Jack and Emma had happened upon Sleeping Beauty Pitch?”
Of course, Jack would poke the body with a stick, and Emma would be off to the side saying, “Jjaaccckkk! We shouldn’t be here!”
So, this happened. Minus a kiss, plus a sturdy stick.
