Writing story, mother cooking alive child

Once upon a time in a small village, there lived a poor widow named Sarah. She had a young daughter named Lily who meant everything to her. As a single mother, Sarah struggled to provide for her daughter and often went without food so that Lily could have enough to eat. Despite their poverty, they were happy and content with each other's company. One day, after days of heavy rain, a terrible famine struck the village. The crops were destroyed, and there was no food left for anyone. Sarah was desperate to find a way to feed her daughter, and she remembered an old legend about a witch who could turn anything into food. Ignoring the dangers of the forest, Sarah ventured out in search of the witch's house. After hours of wandering through the woods, she finally came across a small cottage, surrounded by strange plants and herbs. Without hesitation, Sarah knocked on the door, and to her surprise, a wrinkled woman with a crooked nose answered. "Who are you, and what do you want?" the witch snarled. Sarah explained her situation to the witch, who seemed intrigued by the story. The witch took pity on Sarah and offered her a deal. She would give Sarah a magical pot that would cook anything she desired, but in return, she must promise to give the witch her firstborn child when she turned thirteen. Desperate for food, Sarah agreed to the witch's deal without realizing the consequences. The witch handed her a small pot and warned her, "Remember, for the magic to work, the pot must be filled with water, and you must say these words while stirring the pot: 'Little pot, cook for me, make a meal for my Lily.'" Sarah thanked the witch and hurried back home with the pot. She followed the witch's instructions and put some water in the pot, repeating the words as she stirred. To her amazement, the pot started bubbling, and a delicious aroma filled the house. Overjoyed, Sarah served a hot meal of chicken and rice for Lily. She ate it with relish, and both mother and daughter were grateful for the witch's gift. Little did they know, the witch's words held a sinister meaning. As months passed by, Sarah used the pot to cook various meals for her and Lily. However, as Lily's thirteenth birthday grew closer, Sarah started to feel uneasy. She couldn't bear the thought of giving her beloved daughter to the witch, but breaking the promise could mean losing the pot and their only source of food. On the morning of Lily's thirteenth birthday, Sarah woke up to find the pot boiling on its own. She could hear Lily's screams coming from inside the pot. Panicked and confused, Sarah realized that the witch's words were literal. The pot had cooked her daughter alive. Filled with grief and guilt, Sarah ran to the witch's cottage, demanding an explanation. But the witch just cackled and revealed the truth. The pot was cursed, and it would only cook living beings as payment for the food it produced. And now, the witch had claimed what was rightfully hers. Devastated, Sarah begged the witch to reverse the curse, but it was too late. Wracked with guilt, Sarah returned home and destroyed the pot, but it was of no use. The damage was done, and Lily was gone forever. From then on, Sarah lived the rest of her days in sorrow and regret. She had learned a hard lesson that no food was worth sacrificing her child's life. And the witch's evil deeds continued, luring desperate and vulnerable mothers with the promise of food, only to take their children away.
