King's Finger


It is a squeeky clean flower.

Full Description
A small stalky flower that many would first guess as a weed. Small sharp bends on its stalk threaten sharpness but bend under the smallest amount of pressure.

The small groupings of thumbnail sized flowers are a dirty off-white color that are simply ugly. To smell the flower is to conjure a vision of decaying tree rot.

Additional Information
Not many would give it a second chance, but those that have realized that if the flower and stalk are mixed in equal proportions, boiled for 3 hours, and strained that they make the best handwashing water known. The subtle scent perfumes the hand just barely while the strength of it is enough to get the most stubborn boar or deer grease off the gnarliest of fingernails with a single dip.

The source of soap? Who thought to boil these things? That was one bored herbalist and really hungry person.

Maybe an alternate source of soap, as there already is a medievil source... cute.

Also extremely useful for getting berry stains out of clothing and various bits of dried blood and entrails form t he hair I'd imagine.

Simple, utilitarian. A good bit of background detail. 30 words over a 100-word challenge entry, probably could be edited to fit that.

A slight rustle of the wind... and it stands before you. A Unicorn, whiter and more beautiful than you ever imagined it. It has deep wonderful eyes, and you can't help but admire this creature. It came to have a look at you, and now it freely goes. You have not the heart to stop it, and it silently vanishes between the trees.
Note: unless specially needed, this encounter should never happen again.
