LFR May 4 Number 505

Welcome to the Laws Family Register. 


Suddenly they came out of the tunnel on to the open moor, and there less than a hundred yards ahead, in the middle of the road stood the witch. In one hand a broomstick, at her feet a large tabby cat walked round her feet in an impatient manner, Robert stamped on the brakes; the car stopped in a cloud of dust.

          The witch, if witch she was, didn't look the way they expected a witch to look. She was a bit younger than Robert, and wore a not a black dress and button boots, but tan jodhpurs over brown riding boots, not a cloak but a smart tweed riding jacket, over a check shirt with a sprig of heather attached to her collar by a silver pin.
On her head she wore not a pointed hat, but a tweed cap under which her raven-black hair tumbled to her shoulders, her eyes were bright and active, and she wore a broad grin on her pretty face.

          As they got out of the battered vehicle, she spoke.

"Hello, I say, you gave me quite a start back there. I wasn’t expecting you till tomorrow." She turned and walked towards a tiny cottage almost hidden by a clump of battered Ash trees. "Don't just stand there, gawking! Come on in, I don’t know about you, but I need a cup of tea.”

          To Robert and Emma it was all rather odd, one minute they were plodding gently through the Cornish lanes on their way to their holiday home in Brashleigh, when all of a sudden, they are awoken from their dream-like state, by something zooming back and forth over their heads. 

Now here they were, about to take tea with a witch.
