Hello friends! I hope you’re excited for Halloween, because I have a super fun Halloween photostory for you all today. Enjoy!
Candy wrappers littered my bedroom floor.
“Ohh,” I sighed as I clutched my stomach. “I think I ate too many candies…”
Today was Halloween. I couldn’t be sick on Halloween! Mommy was going to take us all trick-or-treating and I was so excited. Struggling, I manage to stand up and find Mommy.
“I don’t feel very good,” I moaned.
“Cali, it’s ‘I don’t feel very well,” We’ve been over this.” Mommy sighed, barely looking up from the adjustments she was making to Chip’s costume. “Did you eat too much candy?”
I guiltily looked away. “Maybe…”
“Cali! I’ve told you not to do that! How much did you eat?” Mommy reprimanded.
“Only…about 10 pieces of chocolate,” I admitted.
“No wonder you’re sick! Let me see if I have any medicine for you.”
I followed Mommy into the bathroom. She started rifling through the medicine drawers.
“I don’t see anything. I guess you’ll just have to stay here tonight, while the rest of us go trick-or-treating.”
“No!” I shouted, a little too loudly. “I want to go with you guys.” My face paled from the exertion of raising my voice.
“I’m not letting you come with us if you aren’t feeling well. Besides, I don’t think you need anymore candy. You’ll be fine. I’ll even let you watch a movie,” Mommy decided.
“Okay,” I dejectedly sighed.
(Later that night…)
I was disappointed that my family had left for Trick-or-Treating without me. But, I tried to make the best of it. Mommy had said I could watch a movie, so I snuggled up on the couch and turned on The Nightmare Before Christmas.
About a half hour into the movie, I started hearing some weird noises in the kitchen. I paused the movie so that the house was quiet.
I crept into the kitchen to see what was going on. My hands shook as I flipped on the light switch.
I gulped as I noticed that everything had fallen off of our shelves. “No big deal,” I thought aloud. “Stuff like this happens all the time,”
I tried to tell myself to stop shaking, but I couldn’t. I made my way back into the living room to finish my movie.
When I returned, the TV was off. “Oh well,” I thought. “Maybe the TV had an auto-off feature.” My reasoning was sound. There was no way that this was the cause of anything supernatural.
I turned the TV back on. “Nothing to be afraid of,”
Instead of The Nightmare Before Christmas, a horror movie was on in its place! I screamed and immediately turned that off. I ran into Mommy and Daddy’s room and hid under the covers. It was safe in there.
“Okay Cali,” I whispered to myself. “So, the new house is haunted. No big deal.”
My breathing quickened. “I’ll just wait for Mommy and everyone else to get back home. They’re probably almost back.”
The lights flickered on and off until everything was pitch black. “AHHHHHH!”
I nearly jumped out of my skin. I slowly made my way into the living room to grab a flashlight.
I let out a bloodcurdling scream as I saw a ghost! A real, live ghost in my living room. Something grabbed me from behind. It was a skeleton! Was this going to be how I died? While I stood there, unable to move, the ghost and skeleton began laughing? The lights came back on, and I could clearly see that the ghost and skeleton were none other than Mischief and Cloud.
“You should have seen the look on your face!” Mischief chuckled.
“We got you good!” Cloud added.
My heart rate slowed down as I realized something. “Wait, you were here the whole time? Why didn’t you go Trick-or-Treating?”
“We didn’t want to leave you here all along. Besides, this was a lot more fun than Trick-or-Treating…” Cloud explained as he put his arm around me.
“Well, I was pretty scared. But…I guess I’m glad I wasn’t alone. And I’m really glad you two aren’t ghosts,” I admitted.
“Boo!” a noise came from behind us. We all jumped.
“Haha!” Cherry giggled. “I pranked all of you!”
“Where did she come from?” Cloud asked.
“I swear she wasn’t here earlier,” Mischief echoed.
“I have to keep my secrets…” Cherry grinned, as she stared into the camera.
Happy Halloween everyone!
