Post Twenty Eight: The Worst Hogswatch Ever

 [The phone is knocked off the hook as Tiffany takes a step backwards from the sight. You can hear her voice and it is strained and more shaken then it normally would be]

I am a witch and I do not scare this easily...

I am a witch and I do not scare this easily....

[She seems to be trying to convince herself of this fact. Family feel free to notice that there is a rotting corpse under the tree. It is an old woman dressed as a witch. Tiffany is staring at it in horror. It's Granny Weatherwax.]

[Horrified, Sophie enters and immediately pulls Tiffany out of the room and gives her a hug.]

I'm so sorry, Tiffany. It isn't her. It isn't her...

I know, I know.

[But she's a little clingy in her hug.]

Yes it is.

[She takes a deep breath. I am a witch.]

I'll have to bury her.

[She nods.]

I'll help you, then.

[She almost says something about doing it herself but then....she realizes. She isn't a witch alone. Sophie is a witch too. Even if she is a strange witch and acts more like a wizard sometimes....She nods.]

....thank you.

Of course.

Did you have some place in mind?

[ ... Did she say witch? It sounded like she said witch. ]

What was that you said...?

[Glances down.]


[Picks up the phone. Her tone is calm. She's trying to make it so.]

I'm sorry I didn't realize I'd knocked the phone over. Can I help you?

I asked you what it was that you were saying before.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-12-26 02:45 pm (UTC)(link)

Oh, I said "I am a witch, I do not scare this easily."

The towns pulling nasty jokes on us again it seems.

Yes, that is what I said. I'm a witch from the Discworld.

Tiffany. This is Germany. Are you safe?

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-12-27 03:12 am (UTC)(link)
[She takes a deep breath. She is a witch, she is a witch....]

Yes, I'm fine.

The town just left me a little present that's all.

[identity profile] reluctantnanny.livejournal.com 2010-12-27 03:19 am (UTC)(link)
Whatever it is, I wouldn't go near it if I were you. I am grateful that you're all right, at least.

I was thought I was being pranked by "Santa", but other things left for people would imply that I got off very easy indeed.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-12-27 03:21 am (UTC)(link)
I'm going to have to. I'm not just leaving her there.

Yes. What did you get?

[identity profile] reluctantnanny.livejournal.com 2010-12-27 03:32 am (UTC)(link)
...What did you find? "Her"?

War propaganda. [said quickly]

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-12-27 03:35 am (UTC)(link)
They sent me what appears to be the body of Granny Weatherwax. A witch and a friend from home.

[identity profile] deaths-heritor.livejournal.com 2010-12-29 05:30 am (UTC)(link)
Tiffany? What is it?

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-12-29 05:32 am (UTC)(link)
[Scrambles to pick up the phone. Not looking at the tree.]

The town's decided to be a little nasty that's all.

There is a dead body, the splitting image of Granny Weatherwax under my tree.

[identity profile] deaths-heritor.livejournal.com 2010-12-29 05:56 am (UTC)(link)
Disturbing, but not particularly dangerous, thankfully. Have you disposed of it yet?

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-12-29 05:58 am (UTC)(link)
Sophie's going to help me dig a grave.

Did the town leave you anything?

[identity profile] deaths-heritor.livejournal.com 2010-12-30 01:43 am (UTC)(link)
Enough cats to open my own animal shelter.

[identity profile] the-wee-big-hag.livejournal.com 2010-12-30 01:45 am (UTC)(link)
That's a rather odd gift. Have they tried to kill you yet?
