She’s eluded the authorities during the first round of arrests, but when the crows gave the alarm, she knew that she was lost. She barely had time to throw her grimoire into the flames before they began to bang on her door. Knowing that all was lost, she tried to cut her wrists; however, her resolve faltered and the constable was able to seize her before she could do herself any harm.
Her hands were tied behind her back before they trundled her off to prison. Curious crowds began to coalesce along the road to the capital. Some only shook their fists at her, but others with more energy chose to pelt her with dirt and stones. “Burn the witch!” They shouted. “Hanging is too good for her!” She kept her composure during the entire ordeal, even though the cart in which they placed her pitched to and fro as it bumped down the weed-choked road.

She had better have a potion to make GarGar better, again!!
They used to believe that once a witch was arrested, the devil would abandon her and she’s lose all her powers. It’s really a terrible page in the history books..
Oh, no. Stop that which killing Gar-Gar.
Incidentally, any luck getting the real Gar-Gar to come home?
Not yet. I borrowed a trap from the local animal shelter and baited it with catnip. So far, no luck. I’m so worried about that little fella. Thanks for asking.
I’m so sorry. Try cheese cats love cheese. The smell will help too.
Good luck getting him inside.
I’ve offered him cheese before and he doesn’t seem too fond of it. Maxwell can’t get enough of it though. It’s funny how they have preferences just like people.
Oh, yes, Cats are just humans in a fair few ways accept in feelings they process them quite differently.
