Here’s my story for the “5th Annual Halloweensie Contest.” The contest was created by the extraordinaire author and blogger Susanna Leonard Hill, and is up and running on her site: http://susannahill.blogspot.com . The challenge: to write a 100 word or less Halloweensie story for little kids including some form of these three words costume, dark, and haunt. Take a peak at her site when you can for more stories, you’re sure to find a trick or treat there… Happy Halloween!

“It’s getting soooo dark…” said Trudy. “I wanna trick-or-treat, but I can’t till I CLEAN MY ROOOOM!”
“Truuuuudyyy,” said a mysterious voice.
“Huh, who’s that?” said Trudy fumbling over her books.
“Find your costume… NOW!” said the voice.
“I don’t believe in ghosts, I…”
“I do,” said Trudy.
“It’s getting creepy in here. Guess I better tidy up…”
“Costume, okay,” said Trudy, pulling on her wings, bat fangs and glittery tights.
“This house IS Haunted!” cried Trudy.
Whirrrrlllll went the wind.
“Boo!” said a ghost.
“Nana, is that you?”
“Yes! Let’s fly Trudy, grab your pumpkin.”
