The little witch

Lisa liked Granny’s spooky old house. She stood at the door.

“Where are you going?”

“For a walk.”

“A storm is coming! A big black cat comes out in a storm. Don’t touch it!”

The black cat was on the path. Lisa was not scared. She patted the cat.

Too late she remembered Granny’s words!

Her teeth turned black, her skin was covered with green slime. Screaming she ran into the forest where she turned into a witch.

Now when it’s dark and stormy Lisa comes out to scare people.

Maybe she will come and scare you.

Cackle, cackle . . . BOO!


This is my entry for the 3rd Annual HALLOWEENSIE CONTEST
hosted by Susanna Leonard Hill

The challenge is to:

Write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children, using the words spooky, black cat, and cackle.

Your story can be scary, funny or anything in between, poetry or prose, but it will only count for the contest if it includes those 3 words (you can count black cat as one word) and is 100 words (you can go under, but not over!) Get it? Halloweensie – because it’s not very long and it’s for little people 🙂

Post your story on your blog between now and Thursday October 31st by 11:59 PM EDT and add your post-specific link to the list on Susanna’s blog.

    Oh, this gives me the shivers. 🙂 What a great Halloween story! Nice twist. I wasn’t expecting it. She should have listened to Granny. Love the cackle, cackle, cackle. Well done!

      Snap! Julianna, I had trouble trying to leave a comment on your blog too. The Halloween witch of the blogosphere was preventing me from entering. 😡 I eventually got through!

    I loved this and I will tell you why. When my son was young, his reply to everything was, “I forgot”. So kids will pay attention when parents tell them not to do something. I loved this. Thanks for sharing.

    This brought back many memories of warm, fall nights spent outside with neighborhood friends telling ghost stories and then being afraid to walk home alone! Good job!
