Halloweensie Contest 2018 Edition

It's the time of year when the smell of pumpkin spice fills the air and Susuanna Leonard Hill unleashes her Halloweensie contest to the world. The rules for this year's contest are as follows: story is limited to 100 words and must include the words shivercauldron, and howl. My entry comes in at exactly 100 words. I hope you enjoy it.

Full Moon Stew
(100 words)

Spencer shivered in the cauldron’s cold water surrounded by vegetables shaped like toys.

The witch drooled and lit the fire.

Finally, a nice warm bath. It had been awhile since Spencer had one.

He played with a potato shaped like a boat.

“Oh no! Not now!” he shouted as a full moon revealed itself through the window.

Hair sprouted all over his body. His nails grew long and a muzzle formed on his face.

“Awoooo!” he howled.

“You’ve ruined my meal and broke my cauldron,” the witch screamed.

Spencer looked at the mess and asked, “Want to get some porridge?”

Happy Halloween everyone!
