The Woman and The DemonThe Woman and The Demon
In all the world there were only two types of beings. There were the humans, made of soft peach colored flesh, and the demons, who had forms of beasts and were covered with coarse fur. There were only these two kinds of life and no others, but it was said it might be possible, somehow, someway for their shapes to be changed.
A human woman happened to meet a male demon one day, and in her innocence she hoped to befriend him. She approached it and tried to stroke its fur, but it bit her violently and forced off her advances. Still, the woman did not run from him.

They were all very happy for a time, but when Hansel was ten his mother died suddenly of illness.

Now with the man, his wife, two children and the baby, it was getting difficult to support them all.
To make matters worse, Hansel loathed his stepmother and was violently jealous of the attention the baby got. He would lash out brutally at the two of them, and often break things around the house or stay out all night without any excuse or notice.
As for Gretel, she was so very hungry in their current poverty that all she would do was complain and carry on all the day long. No matter how many extra crumbs of food the couple tried to spare for the girl it was ne
