Susanna Leonard Hill, Children’s Author is hosting the 7th Annual Halloweensie Contest. The rules are: write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children using the words candy corn, monster, and shadow. Here is my entry:
“Shadow! Shadow, where are you?”
“Mom, have you seen Shadow?”
“Check your room.”
I scoop up a handful of candy corn and run upstairs.
I look in my sister’s room.
“Go away Sheldon! I’m transforming into a princess. And princesses don’t look for lost pets.”
“Dad, have you seen Shadow?”
“Check the porch.”
My monster-dressed friends are ready to trick-or-treat–costumes, bags, flashlights.
I’m ready too, but it won’t be Halloween without my best friend!
I finally give up looking.
We start trick-or-treating then something softly lands on my shoulder.
“Shadow, you found me!”
Pirate costume complete.
