The Night Of HalloweenThe Night Of HalloweenThe Night Of HalloweenThe Night Of Halloween
 It was a cold and dark night. There were children getting ready for hallowe'en. They put on their costumes and painted their faces with all sorts of colors. After they were all dressed up they started on their way to go out trick or treating. As they were walking up the road they met a lot of other children on the road. So they all decided to go together from house to house. They had to go to the last house way up in the trees. When they arrived they got their candy or treat then started to go to the other houses. While they were walking they saw this one house they were always afraid of. Then one of the older children asked them if they wanted to go up to the house. All the children said no, but the older child who was with them said they were babies and that they were scared to try anything fun. So they decided to go up to the scary house.

When they went into the house they saw a lot of old things they'd never seen before. 'While they were looking around this VERY big house a couple of the younger children got lost. No one knew they were gone. So everyone esle went back out and continued trick or treating.

The two children who were lost in the house were VERY scared and didn't know what to do. So they just started to look around and had a lot of fun. While they were having fun they noticed that it got VERY dark in the house. Then they started to hear things. And they got VERY scared. So they held on to each other and started to cry. But when they started to cry the noises grew louder and louder. Then they slowly tried to find their way out of that VERY big house. But it took them a very long time. While moving slowly through the house they saw something white move very fast across the floor of another room. There were a lot of things going on in their minds and they got very scared. And when they went to the room where they saw the white thing moving. They were SO scared they could hardly go through the other room. While they were very slowly tiptoeing through the room, though the other kids suddenly popped up out of the darkness! Then they laughed and asked if they were scared. But the two kids laughed too, and said they weren't. Then they all left the house to finish their trick or treating. And that was the end of their scary night.
