The Witch in the Long Grass

Two boys who lived very near here who’s mother warned them constantly how dangerous it was go into the long grass by the river but they loved to explore so eventually their made their way to this forbidden location. They enjoyed exploring the places in the long grass and finding the nests of geese and ducks. 
As they explored they smelled something delicious and so they went to investigate. They found a little old woman standing outside her home cooking a giant pot. She offered them both food which they gladly accepted. After they had eaten her fire started to die down so she asked one of the boys if he wouldn’t mind gathering some more fire wood for it. So he set off and gathered wood. When he returned his friend was gone, but when he asked the old lady where he’d gone she simply told him that she did not know. 
As he set down the fire wood however he noticed a hand sticking out of the water in the pot. It was his friend who the old lady was now cooking. Scared he started to run away, but the woman chased after him her claws growing longer and longer as she ran. He grew exhausted and lost running through the long grass and could not find his way out. At last he came to the river where there was a stork on the other side. He begged the stork to stretch out its legs to save him. So the stork stretched out his legs which grew long enough to allow him to run across the river with the witch right behind him. Once the boy was across the stork pulled back his legs causing the witch to fall into the water where she turned into a swarm of lemmings.
