The Picture

Here’s my last Halloween story for Susanna Hill’s Halloweensie competition.

If you didn’t get to the first post, the rules are: Create a Halloween story for kids twelve and under that is less than 100 words AND must include the words: howl, cauldron, and shiver (any form of the word will do).

THE PICTURE

Every year the pizza parlor puts on a Halloween Cup. The winning soccer team gets their picture on the wall!

I HAVE to have my picture on that wall! But, our team usually chases butterflies during the game. We’re never gonna win…

I know!

I pull out the cauldron that came with my costume.

A sharp wind howls when I sprinkle the potion onto my teammates. They shiver.

As the photographer takes the other team’s picture, I kick the grass.

I guess it takes more than a potion to win…Maybe our team should start—Hey look! A butterfly! Gotta go!

My second submission to the amazing Susanna Hill’s Halloweensie competition.

One Halloween night, Lonely Umbrella blew through the streets.

I hope someone picks me up, Umbrella thinks.

The twirling princess?

Nope. Spun away.

The fairy dog?

No…ran away howling.

The superhero reaching down?

Guess not…just tying his shoe.

If only it were raining, someone would need me.

“Oh dear,” Little Witch mumbled, scooping up Umbrella. “Where do you belong?”

With you…I hope… Umbrella shivered with excitement.

“My naughty cauldron is always spewing potions. Come, darling, I could use your cover.”

And from that night on, Umbrella was never lonely again.
