“I AM NOT A WITCH!” she had screamed.
“I am just an old woman who lives alone, you can NOT make me leave my home.”
But the townspeople didn’t believe her.
The townspeople had been guided by a child.
The child had accused the old woman of being a witch for the sole reason that the old woman was stern with her one day. And so, she was to be tried and set fire for her “crimes”.
“I AM NOT A WITCH AND YOU CAN NOT MAKE ME LEAVE MY HOME!”
The old woman was right, at least, about one thing. She never left her home again.

I hope you enjoyed my little story. I believe all places hold many forgotten stories. This is just one of the many possibilities. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And they also hold real histories. Not all of the histories are known, but many are. And I hope to also share those whenever possible.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
