Sweet Meats

A Fairy-Tale Postcard Story

Mr. & Mrs. Jones were down to their last potato in a time of famine.

Mr. Jones laid down to die, but Mrs. Jones said, “We shall use my sister’s witchy ways to call upon a spirit to help.” So, she drew a circle of salt, then pulled a great horned beast from a pool of fire.

She begged the beast for food enough to make it through the winter and the beast responded, “Aye, I shall grant you meat that will last you to spring, Mrs. Jones!” He then ran his sword clean through Mr. Jones’s neck saying, before he left, “Two wishes I’ve granted here today!”
