Once upon a time there was a witch who always said what she was thinking. She was the most honest witch at all times.

That was her problem. She got into trouble sometimes because of her honesty. One day she wanted to capture a monster and said: “Monster! Stay still, I need to cast a spell on you and I can´t if you are moving!”.  And of course, when the monster heard this, he ran away and never came back.

Short stories - The twitchy witch

That happened often to her, so it was impossible for her to capture anybody.

She was very worried about it, so one day she went to the witches castle to talk to them: “I´m not worthy of this job, I can´t be a witch”, and she started crying.

The superior witch approached her and said: “I have an idea. You are going to be our honesty trainer“.

The sincere witch didn´t understanding anything, but the superior witch continued: “You are the most sincere witch we know and that´s an important virtue. From now on, we will have a meeting with you every week and you’ll tell us how to improve our work, ok? You are going to be our trainer!”.

And so that is what she did. She was sincere with the rest of the witches in every meeting, and they all progressed positively thanks to the sincere witch.



The moral of the story: Honesty is one of the most important human value.
