A Halloween Flash Encounter



The 7th Annual Halloweensie Contest aahhhrrrooooOOOOO!

The Contest: write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children (children here defined as 12 and under) (title not included in the 100 words), using the words candy cornmonster, and shadow. (Candy corn will be counted as 1 word.)

I read the entry of  D. Wallace Peach on her blog. You can go and read it. It inspired me to participate.  https://mythsofthemirror.com/2017/10/31/halloweensie-writing/

Candy witch

The Witch’s Bane

Annabelle dumps the contents of her pillowcase onto the floor creating a mountain of sweets. That’s when she hears a lamenting voice.

“That gnarrrly monsterrr broke my brrroom, made me crrrash dive into this pillowcase. On my special night … what a disasterrr.”

A snicker bar and a package of corn candy slither from the top. Annabelle watches frozen as a tiny witch emerges from her sweet mountain. The lights flicker and dim. The shadows deepen and stretch.

“Don’t look so frrrazzled,” she said. “Help me up.”

Annabelle screams. “Mom! Mom!”

“Child! Child! Don’t go crrrazy on me? I’m your frrriend.”
