Happy Halloween, my little grinnng pumpkins! Here is a spooktacular story for you all to enjoy. Unfortuately I wasn’t able to add pictures, so you’ll have to use your imaginations today…And I’m sure your imaginations will be running wild on this scary Halloween evening! Now, let’s begin…
‘Twas a dark and stormy night in the village of Sylvania. The window panes shook violently in their frames, and the fog circled the quaint little cottages. The children had done their tricking and treating, and were now tucked up in their lovely beds. One of those children happened to be Frances Robinson, and she could not sleep. Something was bothering her…
There was an eerie sound coming from outside, and she decided to investigate. She wrapped her scarf round herself and crept as quietly as she could down the steps. Creakkk!
‘Oh no! Why does there always have to be one creaky floorboard?’ she whispered to herself.
Her brother, Finley sat up, looking at her suspiciously.
‘Hey, where are you going?’ he asked.
‘Oh, nowhere. Just feeling a little bit faint, need some fresh air…’ she lied hurrying away.
‘No sis. I know you’re up to something. Tell me, come on. Spill the beans!’
‘Uhhhhh, ok. I’m going outside to see what is making that annoying noise.’
‘Annoying noise? Me can’t hear noise’ said Cali, the youngest sibling. It seemed that in an effort to go on a secret mission, Frances had accidentally disturbed everyone in the bedroom.
‘She’s going on an adventure, and I’m coming too!’ Finley cried.
‘Yay! I love adventures!’ Cali squealed. So that’s how the secret mission became a family trip, with the three siblings marching down to investigate further.
‘Oh look!’ cried Frances. When Finley and Cali came out, they saw that bats were flying around. They were black and spooky looking as they flew through the fog. None of the children knew that bats made that kind of noise, and they were captivated. They sat there for hours looking up at their new friends, and Frances thought how this was the most wonderful halloween she could remember!
Well folks, that’s the end of another story, and another Halloween. Next stop, Bonfire night!
