Allegorical Friends

From my Facebook Status:

When I was younger I had imaginary friends. Now I have an allegorical friend!

My allegorical friend is Avarice. She's a bit funny about money, but has a heart of gold.

As might be imagined Avarice keeps her heart locked in a box, which is locked inside six other boxes, and hidden in her dragon-hoard in a secret mountain. The keys she left in seven different lock boxes, each inside a bank more suave and discreet than the last.

If you do as Avarice wishes, she will repay you exactly as you deserve.
