Witch! Witch! Witch!

A night of terror. Of voices in the dark, asking questions she cannot answer, demanding truth instead of lies in the face of accusation.

Dawn finds her tethered to a post. Bound and blindfolded, her heart races with fear, anger, frustrated by small minds and superstitions.

She isn’t dangerous, only different.

By the time they realise, it will be too late.

She smells smoke, hears crackling, knows the fire has taken hold. The heat intensifies.

It won’t be long now…

  1. I agree a horrible way to die! and unwarranted!
    Do you think Witch’s in our times, suffer from stigma,outside of their own groups. I know some who are, but not publicly.
    Its their religion and their choice.
    Well written! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much for reading, Jen πŸ™‚ There’s still stigma attached to being different unfortunately. Will it always be the case? Let’s hope not. As you say, it’s their religion and their choice πŸ™‚
