night and water『#124_オズの魔法使い』



The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Now the Wicked Witch had a great longing to have for her own the Silver Shoes which the girl always wore.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


Her bees and her crows and her wolves were lying in heaps and drying up, and she had used up all the power of the Golden Cap; but if she could only get hold of the Silver Shoes, they would give her more power than all the other things she had lost.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


She watched Dorothy carefully, to see if she ever took off her shoes, thinking she might steal them.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


But the child was so proud of her pretty shoes that she never took them off except at night and when she took her bath.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


The Witch was too much afraid of the dark to dare go in Dorothy's room at night to take the shoes, and her dread of water was greater than her fear of the dark, so she never came near when Dorothy was bathing.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


Indeed, the old Witch never touched water, nor ever let water touch her in any way.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
