Okay here goes mine-
Tea with the Snooties
Veta didn’t like change. No witch ever did. Especially ones that live in cozy cottages with their sister and not a soul around to bother them.
But one day Veta and her sister received a fancy letter with a royal stamp on it.
Dear Wicked Witches,
Your presence is requested for tea and pastries at the castle.
Kiss the hands,
“Yuck!” said Veta, “I’m NOT eating with those snooties - even if they serve us worms.”
“I think I’ll make a batch of chewy gooey bat whisker cookies,” said Dory, “And you’ll need to make something too.”
“Oh no - NOT me!”
“But they’ll love your special dish?” said Dory.
Hmm, thought Veta. Maybe I can make them something special…something extra special.
The next day the sisters arrived for tea at the castle.
Before Dory knocked,
Veta blurted out, “If any of those snooty princess force us to eat their puffy pastries with sprinkles, I’ll turn them into toads.”
“Cool it!” said Dory.
When the doors opened they were escorted down an elegant corridor.
Another set of doors opened up to a great dining hall with a table decorated in a shimmery clothe and dressed with the finest china.
“Welcome sisters,” said the queen.
Then she introduced her daughters one by one.
“This is Martha, Bartha and Dartha”
“Shhhh,” said Dory.
When Veta sat down next to either Bartha or Dartha, they plugged their snooty little noses.
But Veta didn’t smell anything.
“We heard you two witches make the best food in the kingdom,” said the queen.
“We do,” said Dory and she uncovered her tray.
“Try one,” said Dory handing a cookie to Martha.
“Ouch, your cookie bit me,” she cried.
“I must have added too much spice,” said Dory.
“We do NOT eat spice,” sneered Martha, “Anyway, try our much better food.”
Trays with lids were placed in front of the sisters with cups of hot tea.
Under the first lid were puffy pastries with sprinkles.
Veta stood up, “If you make me eat that- I will croak!”
“Sit down,” ordered Martha.
Veta plopped down with a growl. Then she remembered her surprise dish.
“I made something special.” said Veta, “Extra special.”
She peeled back the lid and a dark spooky haze seeped out.
"TA-DA," said Veta
Everyone gasped- including Dory.
Martha spoke slowly, “We cannot possibly try that rubbish.”
“Then we cannot try yours,” said Veta.
“That’s right!” said Dory bravely, “We’ll pass on your puffy pastries with sprinkles!”
“I find that hard to believe,” snorted Martha, “it’s the best.”
And she dipped a finger in the pastry topping and smeared a blob on Veta’s forehead.
Veta gritted her teeth.
That’s the last straw, thought Veta and dug deep into her extra special dish.
She pulled out a solid handful of cross-eyed newt of cream paste.
“Would you like a taste?” asked Veta with a wicked smile.
