One day while Claire and Lillian were walking down the castle halls Lillian said: “I wish father would change.” “Me too...” Claire said and sighed “If only there was a way for him to change, but alas he has a heart of stone”. Lillian then said with excitement “What if the there was a way”. “What do you mean? “Claire said confused. “Do you remember that story you told me when we were children? About the witch and her spells”? “Yes, but you cannot go there you will die, we all will.” “I love you, Lillian and I will always support you, but please don’t go” Claire said. “I love you too Claire, but I have too.”
Lillian exited the castle and started to walk to the witch’s house that was located in the area the serfs live. She passed the river and soon she was in front of a dark icy looking home.
Lillian knocked on the door and the door was opened by a skinny famine white as ice women. “Princess why are you here?” the women said. “I need something from you. Do you have anything to make my father be less selfish?” The women said, “I might have something that could help you, come inside.” “Oh thank you” Lillian said.
Then the women said “Don’t thank me yet princess… the spell will cause many deaths and spreads rapidly”. “I don’t care who dies as long as my father isn’t selfish anymore” Lillian said. “Tomorrow at sunrise it takes effect ” the witch said and Lillian left.
Lillian got back to the castle and she saw Claire sitting in front looking up at the clouds. “I see your back Lillian, you went, didn’t you?” Claire said disappointedly. Lillian stared at the ground and said: “Yes, and I don’t see the problem with the serf witch.” “What why?”Claire said. “Well, the serfs are part of our land and can’t do anything to us, remember,” Lillian said. “Yeah you’re right” Claire said. “Let’s go, I think father hosting another banquet, so we should get ready.” The ten-course banquet ended around midnight. “Goodnight, my dear sister”. She got in her nightgown and fell asleep.
“LILLIAN YOU CAUSED THIS” she screamed and came a little closer. “YOU…..” she yelled and pointed at her.
“Nooo!” Lillian yelled and woke up in her bed. It was around 3:00 am and she thought “I need to leave before sunrise”.
As she was sleeping she had a dream. She was standing in the village where serfs live and saw her mother covered in black bumps all over her body.
