Description SECOND PLACE SHORT STORY THE COMPASSIONATE WITCH Lois Ivory Hansen 1448 South 1700 East Salt Lake City, Utah 84108 Sittine on a three-legged stool in my grandmother s summer kitchen, I watched her stir and pat a sticky cream- "Grandma, what are you making? Are you going to eat it? Will it get hard?" "Oh, dear, yes. It will get hard and I have to work fast before it does. This is going to be my nose." "Nose? How?" "Well-this is part of my costume. See that big black hat on the chest and that long, black taffeta dress. It's my witch costume. And this is my witch's nose. See, I'm shaping it to be lone &nd thin and a little turned up. "But, Grandma, how will it stay on?" "Oh, I'll just smooth a little of this soft sticky stuff on my own nose and it will hold this long one in place. You just can't be an effective witch without a complete change in features. I do like the taffeta dress. you know." "Will you be the witch at my Halloween party?" "Maybe-when is your party?" "It's going to be Saturday night. Sixteen girls are coming. Mother says our basement is a perfect place-the even in the rafters. You could have a table and a lamp - and tell fortunes. That would be so fun." 73
