Dusting off the blog. Short Halloweensie story.

Hello all,

*cough* *cough* Phew there's a lot of dust!

It's been awhile since I have posted anything. It's hard to get on here while chasing around a 3 year old. =)

Below is my entry for Susanna Leonard Hill's The 5th Annual HALLOWEENSIE CONTEST!!!!! The story had to be 100 words or less and contain some form of the words costume, dark and haunt. It was a challenge to complete, but a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy it.


Gregory E Bray

Reflections of Halloween (100 words)

Murphy sprang from his cat bed to weird noises and a strange figure in a dark hallway.

It was as if his house was suddenly haunted.

He approached the figure which mimicked his every move.

He got close enough to see it was a monster.

Scared, he flew into the air and stuck into the ceiling.

Something fell off of him and landed on the floor.

He remembered it was Halloween and he fell asleep wearing his costume.

He released himself from the ceiling, laughed at the mirror in front of him and went to see the trick-or-treaters.
