Shape of this answer's third letter

Once upon a time, there was a curious young girl named Emily who loved solving crossword puzzles. One day, she stumbled upon a particularly tricky clue that read ‘Shape of this answer’s third letter‘. Confused, she tried to think of all the possible shapes that letters could take – circular, triangular, square, and so on. But none of them seemed to fit.

As she pondered over the clue, a wise old owl appeared before her. “What seems to be the problem, young one?” asked the owl. Emily explained her predicament to the bird, who smiled sagely.

“You’re overthinking it,” said the owl. “The clue is simply asking you about the shape of the third letter of the answer. Look at the letters you’ve already filled in – A_ _. The third letter is ‘C‘, which has an arc-like shape.”

Emily’s eyes widened as she realized her mistake. “Thank you so much!” she exclaimed. “I never would have figured it out without your help.”

The wise old owl simply nodded before vanishing into thin air. Emily completed the crossword with ease, and from that day on, she approached every puzzle with a newfound sense of confidence and clarity. And whenever she came across a clue about shapes or letters, she always remembered the lesson the old owl had taught her – to trust her instincts and not overthink the answer.
