I'm excited to enter into Susanna Leonard Hill's Halloweensie 100 word Challenge. The rules are to create a story for children using only 100 words and three must-use-words which are: Jack O'lantern, Candied Apples and Boo. Click here to see the full set of contest rules.
Once upon a Halloween
Three aliens stood on the sidewalk and watched as strange creatures passed by. Some had pointy hats, some had fangs, and some wore capes. A few looked just like them. “This is Earth, right?” asked Jack O’lantern. “Yes, we landed on the right planet,” said Boo.
“Our mission is to visit at least one house and steal some candy,” Jack O'lantern said. "Look, those creatures are easily taking candied apples from that house over there!” he pointed to the darkest house on the block with creepy music coming from it.
“No way! We're NOT going there, it’s haunted!” said Boo.
