This is totally unnecessary. If you wan't the photo to speak for itself, go no further, but...

“But I need the medicine!”
“I hear you- just no way to help ya.”
“Listen- if you don't give me the name- my wife, she’s- she’s gonna die!”
“Sorry friend, there has to be some modern-“
“We’ve tried it all, Nothing works- from the powerful to the experimental. No luck-
Just tell me the name, I’ll be out of your hair- I drove all the way from Lexington to these hills, and I am not going back empty handed to let my wife die…”
“Alright now calm down, a desperate man it is that messes with this type of healing, this type of dark, magic. With the utmost hesitation I give you this address and instructions, however, I think you a fool to pursue your quest, despite how noble a cause you may think you have.
You’ll find the Man you are looking for off interstate 64, ¾ mile past the entrance to the ruins of the Boon Manufacturing Co., down the end of a dirt road at the edge of pine grove, in a place called Jackson Holler. You’ll see an old white building that looks like a turkey coop there, and the man will be there just about dusk- you need to be there at that time, and you need to leave before nightfall.”
“What money do I need to bring, how much payment?”
“Money, you won’t need money.”
“Well then how will I get the medicine, the cure?”
“You will not pay in money, but in something else, the Man will determine the price. I guarantee you will not be ready to tender payment, but as they say, it is what it is...”
“why, what could he want?”
“There now, you’ll find out soon enough. Now you best mind my words and be heading out now. And whatever you do, be careful if he takes off his hat; people have strange accountings when that happens…the mystery to his shifting lies in that hat. And don’t -no matter how much he pleads or invites you, do not go through the white door- do your business outside… you’ve been warned.”

I just made up this story to go with it.

Thanks for the comments and votes!

I loved the image, and I also smiled when reading the story. I am definitely trying it tonight with my daughter at bedtime! Regarding the image, it was a smart move to choose these pastel tones, it really adds to the "myths and legends" theme. Congrats on the well deserved ribbon.
