What better way to start October than with a Fall Frenzy Writing Contest!
GHOULISH GUESTS (photo #11)
by Linda Bozzo
Whistling October winds rattle the shutters on the crooked mansion.
Echoes of groans escape the cracked panes of glass.
The cast of characters creep up the dark winding driveway, pausing briefly at the craggy iron gate. C-R-E-A-K
Leaves crunch under their feet as they float up the sidewalk.
Skeleton leads the way, pointing his narrow beam of flickering light on this moonless night.
Spider scampers up the uneven steps leading to the front door.
The others follow closely, desperate not to be left behind.
Dangling ghosts and the smell of rotted pumpkin greet the strangers.
Before they can knock, the paint-peeled door moans and creaks open as if inviting the ghoulish guests inside.
The green-horned creature is the first to scream . . .
“TRICK OR TREAT!”
