Meme musters all her courage and enters the basement doors to visit the sinister creature that lives there.

Evil thing in the basement.

The two kids made it everyday to the old house. They found their friend eagerly awaiting them at the door each day. The old house had some spooks about it and one of them was the old basement. Belle told them that she sometimes heard a wicked laugh coming from down there. " It's the laugh of a woman and sometimes I block my ears to the sound of her laughter." She told them with wide eyes. " The Artist told me to never go in there for he had created his greatest mistake , he said that she was supposed to be the only friendly one of her kind but realized too late that it was impossible even with magic to re- create something that was always meant to be evil."
" Wow!!" exclaimed Daniel, " what is it?" asked desperately.
" I dunno what it is but he says it's evil. "
" Well evil or not ... I am going down there , I want to meet it." Said Meme in all her bravery.
" What? No!" said Daniel and Belle in union. She looked at them shocked.
" Why must you live in fear when we're not here? I must meet this creature and tell it to stop it's horrid laughter." She insisted.
" No Meme ... that's not necessary at all , I mean it doesn't happen that often any way and you don't have to do that ...really." Belle pleaded.
" I am sorry Belle my curiosity is much too aroused now, I am going down there" She said in a tone of finality .
"I dunno Meme remember what mom says about the cat who is too curious... It gets killed." Daniel warned in his innocent four year old voice.
" Naw adults only say that when they're too scared to find out the truth about something
besides have you ever seen a dead cat? I certainly haven't " Meme reasoned confidently.
Belle looked confused at the conversation.
" Cats have many lives so they don't necessarily die." Daniel volunteered .
" So it's settled I'll go down tomorrow, don't worry Belle I'm sure it's not so hard core as it seems bullies are really big scared babies at heart." Meme explained but Belle looked sorry that she had mentioned this information.

The next day she and Daniel arrived promptly at 9:00 am . As soon as they entered Belle started to plead with Meme but to no avail.
" Don't worry Belle I know what I am doing." She really didn't but couldn't stand the thought of her friend in fear all the time.
Daniel and Belle held hands as the basement door creaked open when she turned the key. She closed the door behind her and told them to lock it in case the thing tried to escape. She told them the secret knock and it was the only knock they were to open the door for. If she was in for more than one hour something was wrong and they would come in after her.

In for more than she bargained.

What Meme beheld in the basement made her gasp. The color of the whole basement lit up in florescent green . Meme ducked low behind some boxes and peeked out to see a huge cauldron bubbling up in a mist above a blazing fire. Soon an ugly witch came over an started stirring. The basement was gigantic seemed like another house. The witch stirred and stirred the cauldron. She went over to a large table which was stacked with umpteen jars of various ingredients. She opened an old raggedy book that had no doubt seen better days. As she read silently the horrific high pitched laughter escaped her lips. Meme's heart raced. What was she doing? She couldn't approach this evil witch! She looked at the door couldn't get to it without the witch seeing her now. What was she going to do?
" Who are you and what are you doing in my abode ?" Meme looked up and saw the face of the witch only inches from hers, she gulped as she stared into her big pools of black eyes.
