Thanks, Beem, I love playing with kids' books - it means I never have to grow up.

My heart races harder with squeak of the boards beneath my feet. I glance back at my friend barely visible through the overgrown trees and vegetation. I'd seen the flickering light when I came through the trees, but now as I stand on the front porch, I wonder if it had been my imagination. No one had lived in the house since before I was born. Everyone knew that, but it didn't explain my apprehension. Nothing was going to happen when I knocked on the door. I was being silly.

Wow, Charles, I had goosebumps! Thanks for playing.

Happy Halloween, Charles!

What a wonderful post today Wendy! I think these should be implemented for educational usage. There are not alot of programs out there that promote creative writing!
26/10/2019 11:51:56 am
Thanks, Forrest, I'm planning on doing some creative writing workshops in schools in 2020.

An old man stared down at me with vacant eyes as he eased open the door. I backed away, hoping I could disappear. Too late. I can't move as he held me in his terrifying grip with only his eyes. Is my friend behind me? Eddie please help me! Then I woke up. What happened? Did I drink something that didn't agree with me?
26/10/2019 11:53:37 am
Hi Shirley, You've got me wondering what you drank!!!!
28/10/2019 12:05:32 pm
Yeah. Must have been a powerful potion. Even my spelling is off. Oh well. I tried. Lol
28/10/2019 12:27:53 pm
Just a bit of Halloween fun, Shirley!

I rang the doorbell and watched as the door shimmered and became transparent. A silhouette appeared and I stammered, “Tttrick or tttreat.”
26/10/2019 05:58:45 pm
Yvette, that was intense!
26/10/2019 03:05:44 pm
Hi, Wendy. This was a fun post! I hope you had a fun day I'm the tour. 😀

Thanks, Rhani, I'm enjoying reading the creative pieces.

The door slowly creaks open as my clammy hand pulls away from the cold brass knob. A bright light temporary blinds me and then engulf the sagging porch. I shook my head and held out my empty candy bag. "Trick or treat." I say holding it up to the green hand.
26/10/2019 06:01:26 pm
Hi D.L. - I'd be running, too!
27/10/2019 03:31:26 am
What a great post! Makes me want to be a kid again :)
27/10/2019 11:21:27 am
Thanks, Ted, I get a thrill out of using my imagination.

Todd opened the car doors for the women. Linda shivered at the sight of the bleak house, perched at the edge of the forest, the pounding waves of the Atlantic Ocean for its backdrop. Loose tiles dangled from the turreted roof, shutters flapped against the crumbling bricks, and broken steps offered to lead them into the dark hallway.
Tom, Edward, Mike, and David strolled the graveled path. Gregg, Judy and Ryan waited by the front door. Todd hooked Linda’s arm through his as they followed the others. They stepped into the darkened entrance. In front of them loomed a staircase with two lines of lit candles traveling upward past menacing-looking gargoyles before splitting in opposite directions on the landing. Candles hung from wall sconces along the hall to the right of the stairs, while the one to the left gaped open in darkness.

That's perfect! Thanks, Suzanne.

A fun post. You are a prolific writer of children's books. Keep up the great work, Wendy.
27/10/2019 09:35:58 pm
Will do, Bernard!
28/10/2019 08:17:51 am
Super post, Wendy. (Sorry I'm late.)

I glanced over my shoulder to make sure Cindy was still with me. Much to my dismay, she'd already returned to the safety of the street. I swallowed hard. She'd dared me. I could never back down from a dare. I'd rather be scared out of three lifetimes than to have her tell everyone I was chicken. The flickering light in the window went out and I heard a loud groan come from somewhere inside the house. I almost wet my pants. I had to keep it together! Trembling, I knocked on the imposing wooden door. "Trick or treat," I muttered. Okay. I'd done it. Now I could leave and save face. Suddenly the door creaked open. I shrieked and ran as fast as I could. Laughter stopped me in my tracks. I'd been played. That's okay. Revenge can be brutal. They'll find out.
28/10/2019 12:24:41 pm
Hi Jan, I think I'd be with Cindy back on the sidewalk!
28/10/2019 11:50:42 am
What fun, Wendy!!!
