Title: The Great Halloween Scare WC 98

The tiptap of our footsteps on the cobblestones grew louder as we climbed the steep alley.

“We’re lost,” said Vampy.

I reread the address on the invitation. “We should be close by now!”

Flickering lamps cast eerie shadows.

My heart thumped.

Cats’ cries filled the night air as we reached the threshold.

Vampy squeezed my hand.

“Careful, Vampy, or you’ll…”

Meowww! Hisss!

Vampy jumped. “Patsy! That was quite a fright. Luckily, I’m not superstitious. Better a black cat than a werewolf.”

Just then, a door flew open…

Good luck everyone, and thank you, Susanna. Your contests are always fun and challenging. A big thank you to the prize donors.

Happy Halloween.

As a child, I spent my summer holidays by the swamp catching tadpoles and other creepy critters or running after wild animals. I wanted to become a veterinarian when I grew up. But destiny turned my life around - I moved to Italy, where I obtained my BS in Environmental Sciences and Territorial Management. When not working in our family-run business, I write, read, play with clay, doodle, and go on scavenger hunts in the woods, followed by my six cats.
