My candied eyes saw the boy and girl she tried to eat push her into the oven. I saw flesh blacken and bake.

I saw the girl giggle as the boy kicked the oven door, a clang echoing in the gingerbread room. I saw them take baked flesh and stuff them into their mouths, leaving only her candied eyes.

I saw the girl still hungry -- she pushed the boy in, and later ate his succulent flesh.

I saw the candied eyes of the witch meet mine. She pushed me into the same oven when she too was a little girl.
