Looking along Blackbird Street, Brady, Archie, and Dan saw that they were down to only a few more houses. Brady’s frustration at their lack of finding any Halloween treasures on the neglected street had made him blind to the horrors they had just encountered. He was determined to hit every house.
Stepping up to a rundown two story Victorian, the boys noticed that the front door was open with a man standing in the doorway. He looked more like a corpse.
“Cool makeup, mister.” Brady said, holding up his bag for candy.
In reply, the corpse moaned and grabbed the boy’s bag. The zombie pulled Brady toward him and tried to bite the boy. Shocked at seeing their friend in danger, Archie and Dan rushed forward and slammed into the corpse. Stumbling backwards, the zombie cried out in pain.
“Kids, can’t you take a joke. You know, trick or treat.”
The three boys looked confused as they watched the zombie get up and brush himself off. Then he reached over to a large bowl and brought it over to the kids. “Here you go, have some Halloween treats.”
Approaching the bowl the kids cried out in shock at what they saw, human fingers, eyeballs, and other body parts.
“No thanks!” the three boys shouted as they ran off.
“Hey guys, the candy is still fresh!” The zombie said, as he started nibbling on a finger. This was not the Halloween treasure the boys were looking for.
100th Halloween Half-Pager… Yeah!!!!
