2018 Halloweensie Contest

Susanna Leonard Hill, Children’s Author is hosting the 8th Annual Halloweensie Contest. The rules are: write a 100-word Halloween story appropriate for children using the words cauldronshiver, and howl. Here is my entry:

WEREWOLF & THE HALLOWEEN RACE

Witch tapped her cauldron three times.

CLINK! CLINK! CLINK!

“Welcome to the Halloween race!”

Werewolf’s knees knocked as he took his place on the starting line.

“On your marks, get set, GO!”

Ghost zoomed off the line, but then disappeared.

Vampire tumbled over his cape.

Skeleton’s bones clanked, falling apart.

Werewolf stumbled and then found a steady pace.

His fur flew.

Slobber drooled.

Ghost appeared again swooshing in and out of Werewolf’s lane.

“Watch out!” shouted Werewolf.

He darted and shivered right through Ghost as he crossed the finish line.

“AHHHH! What happened?”

“Congratulations, Werewolf! You’re the winner!”

HOOOOWL!”
