telling the tale

The hero and his sister arrive at the witch's doorstep.

A cat assures them they can wait.

So they, without warning to me, start to tell each other stories.  Which means I need stories that are thematically related, NOT one of the fairy tales being retold in the story -- I think that the sister will start to tell a tale about a witch, glance at the door, and change it -- and then when the witch arrives, she has to weave into it -- 

She's going to, I think, demand a tale that doesn't end, and our hero's going to go into a nested tale of people asking someone to tell them a story.  Going to amuse and annoy her -- being a wicked witch, she doesn't have to be just.
