Arooooooooooooo! It’s that time again. It’s once again time for Susanna Leonard Hill’s Halloweensie contest.
Here are the rules for this year’s contest as taken from Susanna’s website:
“Write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children (title not included in the 100 words), using the words costume, dark, and haunt…You may use the words in any form – e.g. haunt, haunts, haunted, darkness, darkening, costumed, whathaveyou :)”
So without further adieu, here’s this year’s story:
Word count: 100
Sophie pulled the black sheet over her head.
“I’m going to fool everyone,” she giggled.
She skipped out the door and hid behind the bush.
Her sister Abby tripped down the sidewalk in her princess costume.
“Aaahhhh! You scared me.”
Sophie laughed. “I’m blending in with the dark and haunting people.”
The girls sped up the next sidewalk to their first house.
“Trick or treat!”
The door opened. “What a beautiful costume, Abby. Here you go,” said their neighbour.
The door closed. “What? Where’s mine?” said Sophie
Abby laughed. “You blended in so well, she didn’t even see you.”
