Ezmia fell in love with a baker from the village, only to find out his affections for her had been a ruse, a joke he played on her with the other village youths. When she demanded his apology, he refused. To punish him, she enchanted a gingerbread man. The uproar this caused made the baker's family lose their bakery.
"It jumped off the tray and ran away from him. It became quite the ordeal; the entire village chased after it with no success."
The Gingerbread Man is a classical fairy tale about a runaway cookie. Ezmia's story connects her with several other fairy tales and items such as the Pied Piper, Beauty and the Beast and the golden harp.
