The small group of 5 children sat on the floor in the dark living room. One of them held a lit flashlight below his face so it gave him a spooky appearance while he told the others his ghost story.

“And as she turned to look, she saw the bloody hook!” Mike exclaimed as he finished his story.

Three of other kids let out small cries of fear. The other commented, “That wasn’t all that scary, Mike.”

“Really, Dennis?” Mike replied, lowering his flashlight to shine on Dennis. “Then why are you trembling? And why did your voice sound a little high pitched?”

Dennis frowned. “My turn for a story,” he said. “Give me that.”

Mike reached over to hand him the flashlight when he saw movement behind he couch. He froze and gasped. 

“What’s wrong?” Dennis asked.

Mike pointed with a trembling finger. Dennis and the others turned to look.

Behind the couch stood a tall, cloaked figure. Its arms began to wave and it started to make moaning noises. Then it started to move around the couch and towards them. The children all stood up and started screaming and backing away.

As it neared the children, the figure suddenly removed the cloak and cried out, ‘BOO!”

The other children screamed, but Mike recovered his wits enough to shine his flashlight on the figure. He rolled his eyes. “Mom….” he sighed with embarrassment.

His mom chuckled. “Happy Halloween, kids.”
