They haunted the letterbox day and night, terrorising the postman by snatching every piece of junk mail that dared peep through, until a loud piercing 'DING DONG' rang out through the house. The Postman handed over a mysterious parcel that made no sound when shaken vigorously, except a slightly eerie crinkling which could have been the ghost of Halloween past.
Furiously shredding the packaging as they went, they wrestled the parcel to the ground to discover a decimated Skeleton and Witch, previously sat upon by a giant Troll. Eager to breathe life back into the costumes, they filled them with their own bodies. Within seconds the Skeleton was daring the witch to a fright off!
Meanwhile, not to be left out a slightly less terrifying Lion emerged from the body of a toddler.
When the haunting was over and the Skeleton, Witch and Lion retired to haunt another house, a boy wrote a story ...
|A skeleton kept scaring the children away.|
|Day and day the skeleton frightened children, hour by hour|
|Soon the skeleton woke up to a day when children weren't children, They were ghosts.|
|He ran and ran until he came to this house.|
|It wasn't an ordinary house. It was a skeleton house. He hated it and he promised he wouldn't scare children again.|
Do you think I have a budding children's horror author on my hands? Do show your appreciation for this newly discovered talent and leave him a comment. It will make his Halloween! Thank you x
