Trick or Treat - Saturday Centus # 24

Week 24 of Saturday Centus this weeks prompt is to use up to 100 words (not including the prompt) using the line .....   "Trick or treat!" they shouted as the door opened"



"Trick or treat!" they shouted as the door opened.

The man stood towering above the little witches and goblins and started slowly to hunch his back whilst contorting his face, he then rolled his eyes and let out a blood curdling scream.

The little witches and goblins mouths dropped open as they stood momentarily rooted to the spot with fear. Then very slowly they edged their way back from the door and out through the garden gate .... then turned and ran as fast as they could, little green legs and capes flying in the air.

The man straightened up, stopped screaming and went back inside.

"What on earth was all that screaming about, George?"

"Oh, nothing ... just making sure that they were the last trick or treaters to come to our door this Halloween."

Oh what a prankster that George is . How could he have resisted ? maybe he ran out of candy?

Viki said...

OMG, I can't stop laughing. Wanting to save the rest of the candy for himself, huh? I could just see those kids running down the street. Too funny!!

Hmmmmm. Maybe I could do that when we run out of candy and turn out the lights.

LOL! That old Halloween Grinch must have wanted all the candy for himself. The writing is smart and very visual. I love this Centus..........cj

Jenny said...

I think he was just scaring them away so he could eat all the leftover candy.

I suspect my husband has done that a time or two himself-ha!

What a fun use of the prompt. I really enjoyed this little smile.
