THE HALLOWEEN MOON

[photo credit: allpicts.in]

Today’s story is under 100 words for Susanna Hill’s 6th Annual Halloweensie Contest that starts today and runs through Halloween night. The main rules are the story has to contain (in some form) these three words: ghost, moon and spider AND be 100 words or less.

In addition to these three words, I have incorporated both Learner’s Word of the Day and dictionary.com Word of the Day for today (Oct. 27, 2016) I also gave myself one hour to write it and edit it as per my usual Word of the Day guidelines.

[dee-lek-tey-shuh n]

gourd – noun

  1.    any one of several types of fruits that have a hard shell and that are used for    decoration and not for eating

THE HALLOWEEN MOON

by Traci Bold

97 words

Moon cast light on the delectation below.

It saw animals, cowboys, ghosts, ghouls, knights, princesses, superheroes and witches running house to house for candy.

In the dark…

A huge sneaky spider spun its web fast which caught Moons’ attention.

The web grew large and wide enough to snare some tasty trick-or-treaters.

The spider was off its gourd! Moon was horrified.

It cast it’s light upon the spider for all to see.

The trick-or-treaters tricked the spider with their sticky candy, wrapping it in its own web.

They thanked Moon with a candy offering.

Which made Moon smile.
