Once upon a time,

there was a scared little

girl, named Scarlet.


Scarlet, why don't you

play with the other kids?

- Why?

- I don't know, 'cuz it's fun?

Make some friends?

It's normal?

Listen, I don't like normal.

Just like your

mother, explains a lot.

Can I go now?


Go right over there and

play with those girls.

I'd rather be alone.

They just don't understand me.

Honey, they're not

gonna understand you

if you don't give them a chance.

Something was pulling Scarlet

toward the woods,

whatever it was.

Anyone there?

Don't be scared.

Scared, but curious.

She felt the connection.

So what's wrong?

You said to make new friends.

I think I almost did.



Honey that's great,

what's her name?

I don't know.


Can we go back to the park?

It's getting dark

outside, besides

I think your friend's

probably already gone home.

Yeah, I think so too.


Who's there?

A friend.

Where are you?


Can I see you?



Promise you won't be afraid?

I promise.

Don't make promises

you can't keep, my dear.

What... are...

Don't be scared.

I can't.

Please, you promised.

What's your name?

I don't remember.


Do you want to be friends?

I guess, this is weird.

I thought you'd say

something like that.

No one understands me.

Wait, we can be friends.


You know, friendship is

a very powerful thing.

I'm so glad I met you.

I'm glad you came

to see me again.

It's been a long

time since I've had

a little friend like you.

You know what this

is, don't you?

You can use it if you'd like.

No, thanks, I don't want that.

I just want to be friends.

Are you sure?

Yes, stop asking!

Well, maybe when you're older.

You okay?

I'm fine, Dad.

Look, no more of this

scary stuff before bedtime.

I know you're in

here reading a book

when you shouldn't be.

No Dad, I liked it when

you read me fairy tales.

Yeah, clearly.

I just wish you

would read more to me.

Aren't you a

little old for that?


It just makes me

feel not so, alone.

Meeting new people can be scary.

What if they don't like me?

Well that would be their loss.

Why don't you get

some sleep, we'll

talk about it tomorrow.


You're through

with school, then?

For the summer.

That's why I can keep

coming to the park.

Your father must

be very pleased,

To see you taking such

an interest in something.

Yeah, I guess.

How do you know about that?

I know a great deal

about a great many things.

I used to be

scared of this tree.

The first time I saw it.

I don't know why.

It is scary.

But once you learn

more about this world,

you realize how scary

things really are.

Or, not.

Do you think it's weird

I don't have any friends?

Not at all, Scarlet.

You are a very bright girl.

What a pity, the outside

world doesn't see you.

See, you understand me.

We can understand

each other better

if you come back more.

What was that wand you

were trying to show me?

It's nothing.

You didn't seem very interested

when I showed it

to you last time.

No but, I am now.

You were very rude when I

tried to share it with you.

No, I'll listen now, I promise!

Are you hungry, dear?

A little.

I've got some apples

back at the cottage.

Scarlet and the witch

grew closer and closer.

She was like the mother

Scarlet never knew.

Scarlet didn't take

the wand that day,

because she didn't really

know what she wanted.

But she came back the next year.

And the next.

And many years passed.


Hello, old friend.

I almost thought

you weren't coming.

You used to come much
