    Halloween on Adalia's home world is like Earth, and its the kids turn to be afraid!


    My words were......with my image.

    Dire

    Firelight

    Gruesome

    “They knew they were in trouble; things were dire!” Adalia said in an almost desperate tone. Across from her Jesse sat on the log and his little sister Nicci was hugging his arm. The look of fear on their face was intensified by the flickering fight light dancing across their features. She hid her amusement as she widened her eyes. “The killer was on their trail and the children knew they’d find a gruesome way to kill them!” she hissed. Nicci clung tighter to her brother.

    “But they can run away mummy?” The girl whimpered.

    Jesse narrowed his green eyes. “She’s pulling your leg Nic.” The lad was more attuned to his mother than Adalia had thought. Looking at him she wondered if this was what his father looked and acted like at 10, but she was reminded his life had been very different at the same age.

    “Am I? This is a true story Jess, why would I lie?” She asked in a hushed tone.

    Jesse wasn’t convinced as he put his arm around his little sister. “Even if she’s not, it was a long time ago and he can’t get us now.” Jesse stated, his confidence faltering.

    Adalia leaned forward. “Didn’t I tell you?”

    “Tell us what?” Jesse countered.

    “They never caught him! The Akrian killer is still out there!” She hissed. Nicci’s little face creased with a frown as her wide green eyes showed the fear she felt. Jesse’s confidence was waning, his mother’s words felt real, felt like she meant that this murderer of children was still out there. His grip on Nicci tightened slightly.

    “Ok, I’ve got two candy apples with scary green faces on them, who wants one?” Kyp announced loudly as he stepped into the firelight. The children both screamed in terror as they clutched onto each other.

    Adalia burst into laughter. “Perfect timing love.” She got out as she’d known he’d waited in the dark for the right moment.

    He handed the annoyed children their apples. “I know. Happy Halloween kids.”

    Thank you. Figured a 'family' moment would be suitable.

    Nice story. :)
    Like the family aspect of this being told as a ghost story.

    [face_laugh] Poor kids, but I'm sure the apples will make up for the scare. :p

    Just the way I like my Halloween stories -- spooky and mysterious (instead of gory and terrifying...). And the "trick" and "treat" are in the correct order. I'll bet the apples were especially delicious after the scare. :)
