Construct a story about inserting a curse that causes chaos into a seemingly ordinary artifact, but offer a surprise ending that isn’t simply lifting the curse.
The artifact could be anything- a necklace, a book, a box. How is the curse activated? What are the consequences? And most importantly, instead of having the curse finally lifted, develop a surprising twist that changes the meaning or perspective of the curse. For instance, it could be revealed that the curse had a deeper, more meaningful purpose all along.
