Natalina, the witch’s cat

by Jessica Williams


Narnia, the good witch, kept her cat, Natalina, with her
at all times. She was her good luck charm, a part of her.



Narnia only came out at Halloween night. She hibernated
the rest of the year. She came out to cast good spells over the environment.
She held her cat tightly to her under her heavy, green, velvet cloak.



Narnia kept a huge broom in the store cupboard of her hut
in the sky. It was now time to prepare for her flight. She tied Natalina’s
cookies in a knapsack to the front of her broomstick, so that they wouldn’t
slip. She threw on her cloak, holding onto Natalina firmly and flew into the
night, leaving a shimmering trail of green and red stars.



There were other witches zooming around in the sky, whirling
about and disappearing, yet none were as good as Narnia.



Natalina broke free from the cloak and fell onto a
rooftop. Narnia yelled out “you wait you little wretch, you cannot escape from
me”!



She spotted her cat rolling around on a rooftop, so she hovered
above, throwing the cloak over Natalina and grabbed the wailing bundle. She
then cast a good luck spell over the neighbourhood and flew off. She was in a good
mood after retrieving her cat. She decided to forgive Natalina and gave her the
benefit of the doubt by pretending that Natalina had simply fallen and not
tried to escape. She then cast a spell to prevent Natalina from trying to
escape again. They then flew back to her hut in the sky, with a loud cry of “Good
tidings to ye all”!



This was her yearly journey completed.



Narnia placed Natalina into a nice warm basket, with some
cookies. They then sank into their festive Halloween dreams.
