In a small village nestled deep in the forest, there lived a witch named Eliza. She was known throughout the village for her powerful magic and her ability to fly on a broomstick. The villagers were both fascinated and frightened by her, and many of them whispered that she used her powers to harm them.
One day, a group of villagers gathered together and decided that they had had enough of Eliza's witchcraft. They stormed into her home and demanded that she stop using her magic. When Eliza refused, they accused her of using her powers to harm them and decided to take matters into their own hands.
They dragged Eliza out of her home and brought her to the center of the village. There, they hung her on a pole with a broomstick and left her to die. As she hung there, Eliza cursed the villagers, promising to return and seek revenge.
Years passed, and the village prospered. The villagers forgot about Eliza and her curse, and life went on as usual. But one dark and stormy night, a figure appeared on the outskirts of the village. It was Eliza, and she had returned to seek her revenge.
The villagers were terrified when they saw her. She was no longer the young and beautiful witch they had known, but a twisted and evil creature with glowing eyes and a cackling laugh. She descended upon the village, wreaking havoc with her magic and causing destruction wherever she went.
The villagers tried to fight back, but their weapons were no match for Eliza's powerful spells. Many of them were injured or killed, and the village was left in ruins. In the end, only a handful of villagers survived, and they fled the village in terror.
Eliza roamed the land for many years after that, causing chaos and destruction wherever she went. She became known as the most evil and powerful witch in all the land, and many people feared her.
But one day, Eliza grew tired of her own wickedness. She realized that the curse she had placed on the villagers had only brought her pain and suffering, and that revenge had not brought her the satisfaction she had hoped for. So she decided to undo the curse and set things right.
Eliza returned to the village and used her magic to heal the damage she had caused. She then lifted the curse and brought the villagers back to life. They were shocked to see her, but they soon realized that she had changed. She was no longer the evil witch they had known, but a kind and gentle soul who had been consumed by her own anger and pain.
From that day on, Eliza lived peacefully among the villagers. She used her magic to help them, and they in turn welcomed her with open arms. The village prospered once again, and Eliza became known as a hero rather than a villain.
And so, the story of the hanging witch came to an end. But the memory of Eliza and her curse lived on, a reminder of the power of revenge and the importance of forgiveness.
