The Trickster King. I’m the shaman of stupidity, the Dalai Lama of dumb jokes, the holy man of horrible pranks.” He sighed forlornly. “Now all of a sudden I’m Mr. Sensitive.” “Sabrina!” Daphne cried as she raced into the clearing. Sabrina and Puck rushed to her. “What? Were you attacked?” “What? No, of course not,” Daphne said. “I think I know how to get one of those doors to open for us. We have to put together a new ending.
