When I opened my eyes, I was in a room of gold. Literally, full, shimmering, gold. I saw someone on a trono and went to mover towards them, but I couldn’t move. I looked down and realized my body was being slowly incased in gold.
“Who are you” I demanded
“Why, haven’t you guessed yet? I am King Midas, the man of gold” he introduced
“Why are you doing this to me?” I asked
“I was paid quite profitably to goldify you” he said
“With what? You are already probably the richest man alive?” I wondered
“She paid me with water, my gold touches undoing” he replied
“Water eh? So if I were to have one drop of water touch me, the gold would start to undo?” I mused
“Maybe, I don’t know” Midas said
“Why don’t we test it, then?” I hinted
“Ah, no” Midas declined. The gold had spread up to my shoulders and was creeping up my neck. Then I got an idea. I started to cry.
“What’s wrong? Are you allergic to being incased in gold?” Midas asked
“No…I’m making my…own water” I managed between sobs
“Nice try, but it only works in running fresh water” he complimented
“Dang it” I cursed. The gold was up to my chin now and was starting to cover my mouth. It crept over my mouth and up to my eye’s. It covered my eyes, but I could still hear. Then everything went silent as gold covered my ears and I was completely incased in gold.
