She heard their tiny footsteps crunch in the snow. Both had blond coats and shiny green eyes. She cackled with delight, firing up the oven and the stew pot. She pulled the corner of the curtain aside. There they were, peaking from behind a tree. Her plan worked, she thought. What better than a house made of candy and frosting to lure them. They were the first to come in weeks. And two at the same time… she licked her lips.
She heard them giggling right outside the door. They had frosting all over their hands and mouths full of gumdrops. She grabbed the plate of cookies and opened the door.
They graciously entered her candy house with promises of all the sweets they could ever eat. She led them into the kitchen and locked the door behind them. Dinner will be grand. The boy has more meat, so he will go in the stew, and as long as the girl is basted while baking, she shouldn’t dry out.
She started cutting vegetables over the stew pot.
She turned to offer them more sweets. They had crept behind her with devilish expressions. They grabbed her feet out from under her, tossing her into the boiling water.
Dinner will be grand, they thought.
