Once upon a time, there lived a mean old witch called Winnie. She lived in a dark, spooky house deep in a terrifying, scary forest.
One lovely day, a young girl called Zoe was out skipping. She came to a bridge that led to the dark forest. Zoe was scared but she crossed the bridge. Then thunder and lightning struck.
She ran in the witch's house to be nice and cosy. Zoe was very tired so she climbed the creaking staircase to the witch's bedroom. While she was there, the witch was in her garden planting her pumpkin seeds but then she heard a noise coming from the house. Winnie picked up her wand from inside the house and crept up the stairs, trying to be as quiet as a mouse.
Suddenly, a clap of thunder shook the house, making the bedroom door open. Winnie caught Zoe reading her spell book. With a swoosh of her wand, Winnie turned her book into a bat and chased Zoe out into the dark forest screaming.
Zoe was never seen again, but was that the end...?
