The Contest: write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children, using the words potion, cobweb, and trick. So grateful to announce that my entry was an honorable mention for unique character!
THE VERY HAUNTED HOUSE
House worked for days decorating herself for Halloween.
She mixed up bubbly potions in the kitchen and watched them ooze to the floor.
She hung ghosts in the living room and set a timer for the booing sounds.
House hung cobwebs in every corner of every room.
She saw that it was scary, but not scary enough.
It had to be perfect.
She added vampire bats! Skeletons! Ghouls and goblins!
Then drops of blood, bones, and slime!
Scream machines and mummies wrapped tight!
There! That would do the trick!
Now, House wasn’t just a house anymore.
