Thanks to Priceless Joy for hosting FFftAW each week.
It was an odd store. Adeline, the store owner, insisted only children were allowed to remain inside and make purchases.
Parents would walk in the store and smile when they realized the quaint shop was full of candy, any form of candy which they or their kids craved.
Once meeting the trusted bubbly owner Adeline, parents allowed their kids into the store with their allowance, and often extra money to buy treats for Mom and Dad.
The candy store was within walking distance and parents began letting their kids go whenever they wished.
Sadly, Adeline was not only a candy connoisseur, but a witch. A witch from the same line of witches Hansel and Grettle had bested; but Adeline had learned from her ancestors.
Magic in the candy made parents forget they had kids, who slowly began disappearing after visiting the candy store enough to have fattened up for Adeline’s candy making.
The affects of the magic on the parents wore off months later when they realized their children were gone.
All that remained was a store made of candy.
Adeline had disappeared, moving on to the next town.
