One Lonely Halloween (100 words)
By Deborah Holt Williams
A lonely black cat wandered through the spooky woods. A small voice said, “Ouch! You’re stepping on me!” “I’m sorry!” said the cat. “Is anything broken?” “One leg,” said the spider. “Help me!” The cat lowered her tail. “Climb aboard,” she said. They rested at a house where a pumpkin glowed on the porch. Then they heard a cackle.
“I was lonely tonight,” said a friendly witch. “But now I have visitors. Come in!” She put a tiny piece of black tape around the spider’s broken leg. Three new friends told stories by a cozy fire. Halloween wasn’t lonely anymore.
