"Why can't I see?" screamed March. "What have you done to me?"
"All those that enter my dwelling, never see the light of day," snarled the witch, Pargonous. "You'll be lucky if I let you live."
"You're dwelling? But there were leprechaun's guarding the entrance, I saw them." March shook her head. "This must be some kind of practical joke the leprechaun's are playing on me to get me back for touching their Aquamarine clover. Please stop, it isn't funny anymore. I'm sorry."
"It's no joke, deary," said Pargonous. "My goblins are enchanted to look like leprechauns so the King's followers will leave my cave alone. It's just too bad goblins aren't as smart as leprechauns. Real leprechauns would've never fallen for the ol' squirrel stealing a mere coin bit."
"Please, let me go," begged March. "I promise I will keep your secret. It was my fault for coming in here and messing with your things. Please, I mean you no harm. I just wanted to stop bad spells from hurting my people." March quickly covered her mouth realizing her mistake.
March could almost feel Pargonous smile. "You're one of the King's daughters, huh? I've always wanted a princess for a pet. What shall it be? I'll let you choose. Would you rather be a rabbit, a squirrel or a bird?"
"I just want to go home," cried March.
Pargonous tsked at March. "Too late for that now, deary. Guess I'll have to choose for you. I've always enjoyed squirrels, but my last one got away. Rabbits are nice and fury, but I might be tempt to cook you in a stew. I guess that just leaves bird. Oh yes, you'll make a lovely bird. I will keep you in a cage and you will sing only for me."
March felt the slight breeze of Pargonous raising her wand, a cackle in her voice. "This is going to hurt, deary."
"Not so fast." came a voice from the entrance.
"Rhoddy, run!" screamed March.
