I proposed my girlfriend yesterday, asking her to be my wife.
but she did not answer me.
Besides she gave me this 6 puzzles, below.
She said I will know her answer after solving the puzzles.
Inside the puzzle there is a poem she wrote for me.

The puzzles asked us to visit every squares exactly once, from start to end.
The arrows inside the squares are the directions allowed to step to another square.
Ignore blank squares.

I beg the puzzle masters here help me to decode the hidden messages.
I really want to know the poem inside them.

Hint :

There is a sentence inside each PUZZLE.
The messages are inside the PUZZLE not in the picture.

  • $\begingroup$ I've managed to find the hidden message in puzzle 1 but no idea how to decode it. $\endgroup$ – John Dvorak Jun 13 '17 at 10:00
  • $\begingroup$ Is the puzzle self contained or do you need external resources (besides the English language)? $\endgroup$ – M.Herzkamp Jun 13 '17 at 11:13
  • $\begingroup$ @M.Herzkamp : You need something like morse code. (But not morse code) $\endgroup$ – Jamal Senjaya Jun 13 '17 at 11:28
  • $\begingroup$ Weird... my browser window shows the title "stenography - Messages hidden [...]" but it doesn't show in the actual puzzle title... So maybe this has to do with stenography? $\endgroup$ – M.Herzkamp Jun 13 '17 at 11:32

    $\begingroup$ @F1Krazy Boss is breathing behind my neck. So you have to wait 4 hours and I can write that down home - but big "picture" on my screen really indicating that I have nothing to do… $\endgroup$ – Jan Ivan Jun 13 '17 at 11:48

Benny and Tech already have solutions for the path part, so I'll skip that.

The hidden phrases use

Flag semaphore, following along the path of the arrows.

Puzzle 1

ILLMARRYYOUMERRILY (I'll marry you merrily)

Puzzle 2

CAREFORYOULOVEFULLY (Care for you lovefully) [sic]

Puzzle 3

CHEERYOUUPCHEERLY (Cheer you up cheerly) [sic]

Puzzle 4

PRAYFORYOUPRAYERFULLY (Pray for you prayerfully)

Puzzle 5

FORNEVERLEAVINGYOU (For never leaving you)

Puzzle 6

ANDFOREVERLOVINGYOU (And forever loving you)

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Ah, I was doing the semaphore using the path and getting tripped up. Well done. $\endgroup$ – LeppyR64 Jun 13 '17 at 13:53

Edit: If it's just a fictional story here's the complete solution of the paths.

For the sentence in each picture, my conclusion is to look at the filename of each picture compared with the directions.

Solution for the first one Solution for the 2nd one Solution for the third one Solution for the fourth one Solution for the fifth one

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Puzzling.SE! Generally speaking, when puzzles have stories to go along with them, the stories are made up, so it's okay for you to solve the other five if you can. I believe we've had puzzles involving fictional marriage proposals before. $\endgroup$ – F1Krazy Jun 13 '17 at 9:02
  • $\begingroup$ That's right, we sure love our 'word problems'. On a side note, while you have solved the 'outer' puzzle of visiting each square, there's actually hidden messages in the puzzles, which the protagonist (and his fiancée) wants you to find. $\endgroup$ – mr23ceec Jun 13 '17 at 9:10
  • $\begingroup$ @BennyMüller : Thank you. Can you help me to decode the sentences inside the PUZZLEs? I really want to know it. $\endgroup$ – Jamal Senjaya Jun 13 '17 at 9:16
  • $\begingroup$ working on it, at the moment trying to decode the filenames of the images $\endgroup$ – Benny Müller Jun 13 '17 at 9:21
  • $\begingroup$ @BennyMüller : To help you a bit, the messages is not in the filenames. But in the solved puzzle itself, you can not decode the message without solving the puzzle first. $\endgroup$ – Jamal Senjaya Jun 13 '17 at 9:29
