Metamorphosis

Part 1

 

A

1.I remember thinking to myself, There is no escape for me now!

2.Even if I make a run for it and manage to dodge the lot of them, I still won't get out because the doors are chained and locked!

3.I'm finished! I'm done for!Oh Grandmamma, what are they going to do to me?

4.I looked round and I saw a hideous painted and powdered witch's face staring down at me, and the face opened its mouth and yelled triumphantly, "It's here! It's behind the screen! Come and get it!"

 

B

1.The witch reached out a gloved hand and grabbed me by the hair but I twisted free and jumped away.

2.I ran, oh how I ran! The sheer terror of it all put wings on my feet!

3.I flew around the outside of the great Ballroom and not one of them had a chance of catching me.

4.As I came level with the doors, I paused and tried to open them but the big chain was on them and they didn't even rattle.

5.The witches were not bothering to chase me.

 

C

1.They simply stood there in small groups, watching me and knowing for certain that there was no way I could escape.

2.Several of them were holding their noses with gloved fingers and there were cries of, "Poo! What a stink! We can't stand this much longer!"

3."Catch it then, you idiots!" screamed The Grand High Witch from up on the platform.

4."Sprrread out in a line across the room and close in on it and grab it!

5.Corner this filthy little gumboil and seize it and bring it up here to me!"

 

D

1.The witches spread out as they were told.

2.They advanced towards me, some from one end, some from the other, and some came down the middle between the rows of empty chairs.

3.They were bound to get me now.They had me cornered.

4.From sheer and absolute terror, I began to scream.

5."Help!" I screamed, turning my head towards the doors in the hope that somebody outside might hear me."Help! Help! Hel-l-l-lp!"

 

E

1."Get it!" shouted The Grand High Witch.

2."Grrrab hold of it! Stop it yelling!"

3.They rushed at me then, and about five of them grabbed me by the arms and legs and lifted me clear off the ground.

4.I went on screaming, but one of them clapped a gloved hand over my mouth and that stopped me.

5."Baring it here!" shouted The Grand High Witch.

 

F

1."Brrring the spying little vurm up here to me!"

2.I was carried on to the platform with my arms and legs held tight by many hands, and I lay there suspended in the air, facing the ceiling.

3.I saw The Grand High Witch standing over me, grinning at me in the most horrible way.

4.She held up the small blue bottle of Mouse-Maker and she said "Now for a little medicine! Hold his nose to make him open his mouth!"

5.Strong fingers pinched my nose.

 

G

1.I kept my mouth closed tight and held my breath.But I couldn't do it for long.

2.My chest was bursting.

3.I opened my mouth to get one big quick breath of air and as I did so, The Grand High Witch poured the entire contents of the little bottle down my throat!

4.Oh, the pain and the fire! It felt as though a kettleful of boiling water had been poured into my mouth.

5.My throat was going up in flames!
