Thanks to Susanna Leonard Hill for hosting the Halloweensie Contest! The rules are to incorporate the three words, cackle, black cat, and spooky, into a story of no more than 100 words. Here's mine.Print this post
Lizzy Witch and Spooky
The final bell clanged. Schoolwitches cheered. It was Halloween break!
Lizzy Witch kicked up her broomstand and soared home to her black cat.
"Where's Spooky?" she asked Mum.
"We never know," she cackled.
Lizzy echoed into the caldron. "Spooky."
She plucked through the pumpkin patch. "Spoooky."
She flew over the chimney and under the thorn bushes. "Spooooooky!"
Lizzy coasted home with empty arms and an empty tummy.
"Soup's on," said Mum.
"I can't eat without Spooky." Lizzy sobbed.
"Who do you think caught the ingredients?" Mum winked.
Just then, Spooky sprang into Lizzy's lap.
"Happy Halloween to you too, Spooky!"
