Milly's Witchtrial

Angela Yeung

"Witch!", cried the people as they pointed at Milly. "No! You misunderstand!" said Milly. Milly suddenly took off running into the woods, in fear of being burned at the stake. The crowd followed after her. Milly tripped and fell off a hill. She tumbled and tumbled and all she could feel where sharp rocks and twigs piercing her skin. All she could hear was her own tumbling and a faint chant from the crowd saying, "Get the witch! Get the witch!" The tumbling finally stops and Milly is left unconscious. A few hours later Milly is awaken by her older sister, Anna.
Anna urges Milly to go back home with her to explain to the people of Salem that she is not a witch.  Milly agrees to go back.
