<<---First clue
<--Previous clue


You push the door open. You look around, expecting another hard puzzle like the previous one.

You look at the floor. It says:

In recognition of you work, we would like to award you a Nob... sorry, wrong speech.

In recognition of your work, we are giving you an easy puzzle. Just a plain, simple, undisguised riddle. Hope you're happy. The next one's impossible.

The first part of me:
Apparently, I’m very lovely… but I’m also dangerous.
If you try to hug me, you may be pricked.
Don’t make me blush – I’m red enough.
But I’m also as pale as a ghost.
And yellow as the sun.

The second part of me:
Bloody? Me? Well, yes.
But that was a long time ago.
At least I wasn’t like my father!
I am going to have mutton for dinner.
This livestock is really getting on my nerves.

Add us together, and what do you see?
This is the answer to Clue 23!

    $\begingroup$ I was originally planning on hiding this riddle in a maze, but my computer died and lost my work and I didn't feel like doing all of that work again, so viola. An easy puzzle. $\endgroup$ – user58 Jan 10 '17 at 10:06

I see

ROSEMARY

Apparently, I’m very lovely… but I’m also dangerous.
If you try to hug me, you may be pricked.

Lots of people like roses, but their thorns are painful to touch.

Don’t make me blush – I’m red enough.
But I’m also as pale as a ghost.
And yellow as the sun.

Roses come in red, white and yellow.

Bloody? Me? Well, yes. But that was a long time ago.

Mary I of England is known as "Bloody Mary".

At least I wasn’t like my father!

Henry VIII ordered the execution of many people.

I am going to have mutton for dinner.
This livestock is really getting on my nerves.

Reference to the poem Mary had a little lamb.
