At once, her mother forbade her from doing any such thing. “The old witch is a wicked woman,” the mother said, “She performs Godless deeds,” her father said. But, the little girl had made up her mind. She decided to go anyway. When she reached the cottage where the witch lived, the witch asked “Why are you so pale, dear?

The little girl was trembling with fear, “I saw a black man at your door.” “Oh,” the witch said, “It was a collier.” “Then I saw a gray man,” the little girl said. “Ah, that was a sportsperson,” replied the witch. “Next I saw a blood-red man,” said the little girl, trembling with fear. “I see,” the old witch said to the little girl, “that should be the butcher.”

But I saw a creature with a fiery head.” The little girl finished. You may also like, The Witch’s Wall.
