Halloween Story

It was a dark and stormy night when a ghost came and said, BOO!!! I was so scared I started to run and I kept running until I got to a tree, I climbed up the tree until I came face to face with a bat and I screamed aahaahaah. I jumped down and started to run again until I caught up with what I thought was my mom, when I notice that this was not my mom but a statue of Peter Pan. Someone had put a costume of a dinosaur on it. This costume looks just like my mom's does. Then, I saw my mom by a window in a nearby house; she was getting herself a drink of fruit punch juice. I ran over to her and I said,” Mom, you got the same costume as the statue outside.” Then, she said in a scary voice,” WHAT?”

I went outside to see my friend Sally, I ran to her and said, “I saw a ghost and a bat come on I’ll show you”. The ghost is over there, see right there, “OH THE BAT, RUN.” We got to a tree and climbed up. We saw a nest of bats and then the bats started to fly after us. We jumped and started to run again this time we did not stop for anyone we just ran.

Then, we saw a little black cat crying, we sat down next to the cat to find out why it was crying, when suddenly the black cat turned into a wicked witch. This wicked witch flew after us, and we did not know why it was chasing us but we did not want to stay and find out so we started to run until we caught up to my mom.

I said mom, can you come here we got something to show you. Look at this hole that goblins made so they can live in. the goblins said “it’s Halloween, yes we’re Alive!” we ran away from the goblins and did not stop running until we got to where sally’s mom was. Then we told her what we had seen and heard. She told us to take her where it all.

We went back to the house my mom was at and we went inside to get a drink when someone dumps a pitcher of juice on me. I got a big pitcher of fruit punch juice dump on my head I GOT REALLY MAD. I got so mad AT THE PERSON WHO did THIS to me. I WENT TO SEE WHO SET up THE TRAP. I FOUND OUT who IT WAS. It was friend Sally and GOT REALLY MAD AT Her. I fell over my costume.
