Susanna Hill’s 4th Annual Halloweensie Contest

Susanna Hill’s 4th Annual Halloweensie Contest

Susanna Hill is hosting her 4th annual Halloweensie Contest. The rules are to write a Halloween story in 100 words or less including the words pumpkin, broomstick and any variation of creak. Easy, say you? NOT! But I gave it a go. Here’s my entry using 99 words. Enjoy.

Hildy’s Halloween Ride         

          BAM! Hildy moaned. She picked up her hat, and put it back on. Then holding on to the broomstick once more, Hildy lifted her left foot on top of a pumpkin and carefully raised her right foot up and over. She tried to balance but wobbled. Then suddenly – SNAP!

“Owww-eee.” groaned Hildy.

        Hildy’s heart raced. The witches will want to take off soon. She pointed her wand at the broken pieces. Nothing happened. The book of spells might work but she hadn’t yet learned to read. Then the door creaked open.

“Mooooom!” shouted Anna. “Hildy ruined my costume!”

  1. Hahaha! Hildy’s in trouble 🙂 Nicely done, Keila. I like the details of how she tries to mount the broom, and how she can’t use the book of spells because she hasn’t learned to read – naughty little sister 🙂 Thanks so much for joining in the Halloweensie fun! (And I just fixed your link, so hopefully you’ll get some more visitors now :))
