Halloween is my favorite holiday, so you can imagine my excitement when I discovered a little Halloween writing contest over at Susanna Leonard Hill’s website.  The Contest:  100 word Halloween story appropriate for children using the words: Creak, Broomstick, and Pumpkin.  Piece of candy right?

Hope my story is a delightful treat for you all, and not some terrible trick gone wrong.

Enjoy!!

Trick or Treat?

Clank, Clank, went the knocker

and C-r-e-a-k, went the floor,

“Ahhh!!” Screamed the children,

when she opened up the door.

*

Cackle, Cackle, went her voice,

and C-r-e-a-k, went the door,

“Ahhh!!” Screamed the children,

as her broomstick left the floor.

*

Clip, Clop, went her boot heels,

and C-r-e-a-k went the floor,

“Ahhh!!” Screamed the children,

as her broom began to soar.

*

Flicker, Flicker, went the light,

and C-r-e-a-k went the door,

“Ahh!!” Screamed the children ,

knocking pumpkins to the floor.

*

Pitter, Patter, went their feet,

and C-r-e-a-k, went the floor,

“Ahh!!” Screamed the children,

running, running, from the door!
