Gyula Gábor Tóth: The lost witch
Are you curious about the story of the lost witch? If you ask the shepherds, they just pull their hats down over their eyes and mumble something under their mustache, or spit towards the east to prevent a curse on their flocks.
Of course, the women are more talkative: “it’s a tragedy!”, cries one. “Far from it – a comedy!”, opposes another. The eyes of the young girls meet and they sigh deeply, “what a love story”, they say with an all-knowing tone, glancing at the well where a young herdboy is just leaving. The sound of the youngest ones is harder to understand: “adventure!”, “action!”, “Pista the hero” (“no, Liza the hero”, the girls say), “everything started with a curse, and the fire, and the water, then lots of magic”. The teacher calms them down, and answers with: “I have no idea”.
This book is the true story of the lost witch. If you don’t believe it, find out for yourself.
