NARRATOR: There was once a little girl who was very willful and who never obeyed when her elders spoke to her.   One day she said to her parents.


LITTLE GIRL: I have heard so much of the old witch that I will go and see her. People say she is a wonderful old woman, and has many marvelous things in her house, and I am very curious to see them.


PARENTS: We won´t let you go!. The witch is a wicked old woman, who performs many godless deeds – and if you go near her, you are no longer a child of ours.


NARRATOR: The girl, however, would not turn back at her parents’ command, but went to the witch’s house. When she arrived there the old woman asked her:


WITCH: Why are you so pale?.


LITTLE GIRL: Ah, she replied, trembling all over, I have frightened myself so with what I have just seen.


WITCH: And what did you see?.


LITTLE GIRL: I saw a black man on your steps.


WITCH: That was a collier.


LITTLE GIRL: Then I saw a gray man.


WITCH: That was a sportsman.


LITTLE GIRL: After him I saw a blood-red man.


WITCH: That was a butcher.


LITTLE GIRL: But, oh, I was most terrified. When I peeped through your window, and saw not you, but a creature with a fiery head.


WITCH: Then you have seen the witch in her proper dress. For you I have long waited, and now you shall give me light.


NARRATOR: So saying the witch changed the little girl into a block of wood, and then threw it on the fire. When it was fully alight, she sat down on the hearth and warmed herself, saying:


WITCH: How good I feel! The fire has not burned like this for a long time!
