Oliver closed his eyes and wished for November. It didn't work. The spookiest time of the year was here. He ran over to his closet and pulled open the door.
A green monster cowered in the shadows.
"Aw, Sam, I'm so sorry," said Oliver. " I just was so worried about how scary Halloween is that I forgot to knock."
"Th..that's ok," said Sam. "I'm sc...scared, too."
"Maybe we can go trick or treating together," said Oliver. "No one will know you are really a monster. I'll wear my chicken costume."
"N...no candy corn," said Sam.
"Deal," said Oliver.
The above children's short story is an entry in the Halloweensie Writing Contest.
