Thank you for watching this. Rate this story and comment please ;) The witch led them to the basement of the house roughly while the children were crying and frightened. There were the kitchen and an old iron cage. Then she shut Hansel and Gretel up in the cage with a grating in the lid, and locked it. She told them that they could scream as loud as they could but it didn't help them. However, she decided that the first child to be eaten would be Hansel. So she released Gretel but she made the little girl her servant. The finest food was cooked for poor Hansel with the only purpose of getting fatter. Every day the old witch went to the iron cage and say to Hansel, "Little boy, put out your finger that I may see how fat you are growing."
Hansel knew that she could not see with her red eyes, so he poked out a bone instead of his finger. And every day when she felt it, she grumbled fearfully because he never seemed to grow fatter.
At last she could wait no longer and she said to Gretel, "I am going to cook your brother for dinner. You must light the fire, heat the oven, and help me prepare for the feast." Gretel cried bitterly but she did all the witch had told her to do. She was scared but she couldn't find a way to save her brother's life. When it was all ready the old witch called to her and said, "I have kneaded the dough and the loaves are ready for baking. Come, little girl, get into the oven and tell me if it is hot enough." Now the old witch meant to shut the oven door as soon as the child was inside and bake her for dinner instead of the bread, but Gretel guessed what she meant to do.
"I don't know how to do it," she said. "Could you teach me?"
