This is a famous Hansel and Gretel Story. Once upon a time, there lived a brother called hansel and a sister called Gretel. The two children lived with their mother and father in a small cottage near the woods. One day hansel and Gretel asked their mother if they could go play outside near the woods for a little while. Their mother agreed and said, but be careful not to go too deep into the woods because the woods are dangerous and you could get lost.
Both brother and sister agreed and said don’t worry mom we’ll be careful and both went outside and started playing football with each other. They played and played all day long. All of a sudden they smell a nice aroma from afar. Hey, can you smell that? Asked hansel. Yes, I can! replied Gretel.
It smells like gingerbread cookies, icing, and chocolate because of that aroma hansel and Gretel started feeling very hungry. All of a sudden hansel had an idea. How about we follow the nice smell and see where it leads to he asked. Oh but it will lead us deep into the woods and we’re not allowed to go there because we might get lost! replied Gretel. Even though both children wanted to follow the smell of gingerbread cookies so badly and see where it leads to.
What if we get lost asked Gretel. We won’t say hansel. I’ll take some pebbles and we will drop the pebbles behind us that way we can follow the pebbles to come back home and not get lost. Oh, that’s a good idea said, Gretel. Both brother and sister started walking into the forest following the nice aroma in the air and with each step they dropped one pebble onto the ground.
Deeper and deeper they went into the woods. Hansel and Gretel were careful to drop one pebble after and after another. Little while hansel and Gretel have finally found the place where the gingerbread smell was. In front of them stood a giant real-life gingerbread house from top to bottom that house was made entirely out of candy from gingerbread. Hansel and Gretel were very surprised and they both were hungry too. They wanted to eat all the candy so badly. I think it would be okay if we ate just a little bit of candy from the house said hansel. So both of them rushed to the house and started biting off small pieces and licking the candy.
All of a sudden hansel and Gretel could hear a sharp voice from behind them. Who dares to eat my house said the sharp voice hansel and Gretel turn behind and they saw it was an old witch. Hansel and Gretel were very terrified. They started running away from the old witch as fast as they could. They followed the trail of pebbles that they left behind. After a while, the two children were finally back home safe and sound. They both promised to never ever go someplace without their parents’ permission.
