The child sneaks outside and goes out on a journey to get her back to human form. She finds that there is six ingredients a poison ivy leaf ,a golden apple ,a rotten plum ,a ripe quince ,a piece of maple tree ,and a piece of molded cheese. She finds those things and put them together then the potion calls for you to…… DRINK IT ! SO she drinks it and actually taste good the molded cheese is like regular compared to the poison ivy. She then begins to wonder what if it does not work what if I am shot and eaten for a Thanksgiving turkey.
She does not seem to notice that there is a family of turkeys around her that ask how did you do that then she ask how did I do what? Then she realizes she seems different that she feels taller and she sees human arms and then she asks are y'all also victims of the Thanksgiving curse they say yes she shares the potion and realizes it is her dog Murphy , Her aunt Jolie,and some other relatives that had real funerals. They had a big thanksgiving dinner and the child realized she can forever talk to turkeys.
