As the sheet ghost shook and howled, fingers reached out from a hole in the specters body and began to tear at the opening. Mrs. Fillmore almost dropped her large knife in shock, but quickly realized that it was only Billy attempting to free himself.
“Come on Billy, you can do it!” She shouted out, wanting to urge the boy on, but too afraid to approach the ghost.
The chubby boy pulled with all his might and tore the ghost apart, freeing himself from the monster. Stepping away from the fallen sheet, Billy ran over to hug Mrs. Fillmore.
