You can demonstrate your perception skills in the second part of our Halloween action. Who can find the solution to the following Black Stories?

…and she was never seen again.

(1) Emil is very excited standing in front of the alter. After 7 years of intimate relationship, he is finally going to say “I do” to his loved one. As she enters the hall in her dress, his heart nearly stops for joy. However, just before the end of the wedding ceremony, the bride* suddenly flees in panic. What happened?

RIDDLE #1 has been successfully solved by Denice.

(2) On a warm day in October, the red-headed Augustine set off to the nearby village well to fetch some water. She never came home again. What happened?

Any questions? Please post your Yes/No questions here right under this blog, or in the Clickworker Lounge (…), to shed some light on these puzzles. Hurry up! Each hint will clear some fog away from the mysterious stories.

Annika solved RIDDLE #2 successfully. Congratulations!

The first Clickworker to figure out the solution to the puzzle can look forward to receiving a Halloween Goodie Bag.

Please send your solution before 30.10.2013 with “Black Stories” in the subject line to contest@clickworker.com.

Have fun!

* There was a mistake in the first version of this text. It is the BRIDE, not the GROOM, who is fleeing in panic.
