Once there was a King and a Queen, who lived in a huge castle. They ruled over their country in a fair way but beneath their kindness was a sadness that they could never get over.
King - I know it’s been 15 years, but it still breaks my heart that our daughter was kidnapped as a baby.
Queen - I know. She was our little angel. I would do anything to find her. King - One day my dearest, I still have hope.
In a small village not far from the castle was a young girl named Jane. She was forced to work hard every day by her adoptive parents. Unlike most adoptive parents they didn’t love Janel, they treated her like a slave and never allowed her to have any fun. As she sat scrubbing the walls to their house she spoke to herself.
Jane - I know I was adopted when I was young, but surely they adopted me to be more than just a slave.
Her adoptive parents were named Sandy and Chris. They arrived home just as she was about to put away her bucket and brush.
Sandy - Why isn’t this wall clean yet? You’ve been scrubbing it for over five hours. It really is true what I say, you’re just a useless scrubber. I want to see my face in that wall when I come back or you’re not being fed.
With the angry threat still hanging in the air, Sandy left the room and went upstairs to her bedroom.
Jane - Why is nothing I ever do good enough?
Chris - It’s all your own fault. Sandy is the most lovely person in the world, you must have done something to upset her otherwise she wouldn’t be acting like that. Remember that next time you start complaining, she’s perfect and you’re not, so if she’s complaining you must have done something wrong.
With that small speech, Chris left to join Sandy in the bedroom. Jane was left to scrub the walls, alone like she was most of the time.
With a flash a witch appeared right next to Jane. At first Jane was scared, but she didn’t need to worry. Not all witches are evil, and this witch most definitely was one of the good ones.
TGW - Oh young Jane, don’t you know you shouldn’t wish on an empty stomach? There are so many more wishes you could have made than that one. Better wishes perhaps, but still, I can make that wish come true if you like.
Jane - What? Who are you? Wishes? I was just talking to myself, that’s all. I didn’t really make a wish, not a proper one anyway.
TGW - Well it sounded like a wish to me, and I’m here to grant it. I’m a good witch. There are a few of us around you know. All I need is some of your adoptive mother’s hair and I can find you somewhere else you could live.
Jane - I wish my parents were alive, I would have wished to go and live with them.
TGW - Oh sweetheart, your parents are alive. You should have learned that these two are nothing but dirty liars. If you can get me the hair, I can get you out of these dirty clothes and into some nice new ones with your parents.
Jane - My parents are alive? Who are they?
TGW - Get me the hair, and you’ll find out everything.
Almost as quickly as she had arrived, the good witch vanished into thin air. Jane, sat down and started to think about what she had been told.
Jane - Well, Sandy never washes her hair and she definitely never brushes it. So I need to find a way to get some hair off her head. Oh I hope my parents are happy to see me, I wish I knew what happened that lead to me ending up here.
Just as there are good witches, there are also evil witches. Sandy and Chris waited until Jane was busy scrubbing the walls and they sneaked out of the house. They made their way up a twisted path, surrounding by dead trees to the hut of an evil old witch.
TEW - Tonight you will have what you desire. As long as you can keep her away from her real parents then the spell will work. They will die and you will be able to take the throne as her legal parents.
Sandy - That is easy. If there’s one thing I’m good at it’s splitting up families.
