Halloween-Boo-with-pupkins

    It was late at night and Bob was silently walking across a deserted graveyard with his pet cat by his side. Suddenly at far end of graveyard two scary silhouettes appeared under the moon light. One looked like a wizard or witch, potion bottle in one hand and broom in another. The other was a Ghoul with a pumpkin in hand. As Bob moved a few steps, a skeleton suddenly leapt out on Bob from nearby bushes.

    “Boo” said the skeleton as Bob realized that they were actually the neighborhood kids dressed in their spooky costumes. “Happy Halloween stranger” Skeleton said “Sorry about the prank.”

    “No worries. I always knew I wasn’t in any danger” smiled Bob.

    “Really? How so?” asked the kids.

    “Because I have seen real monsters and I know they can do this” said Bob and vanished into thin air in front of their eyes.

    The Moon shown late Friday night.. He heard no sound, but the eery feeling of nobody around?.. Bob was there, a little mad. Pestered so, he looked outside his window and saw 3 Potions laying in row. With curiosity, he checked them out, pouring 1 onto his hand making a spout. He, no Wizard, but knew one thing for sure, he made a mistake, and began to soar! Up into the Night, on a Broom, he felt light! A Skeleton shown out of the Moon, just a bit too soon! He was a big load, as Ghouls and Ghosts roamed the road.. He felt like Cat and Witch, just with a tiny hitch. He was scary and in danger, he quickly thought. It was Spooky, and he felt distraught. He saw a pumpkin in the night, and he now knew it was Halloween…. What a sight!

    It was Halloween at Darkmoor castle. The atmosphere was not simply scary or spooky – it was terrifying. As a Death Wizard, I should have been familiar with the eerie moon, glowing menacingly in the night. The ghouls and skeletons that haunted the castle grounds moaned and howled, often nearing me. I could swear they whispered into my ears. “Bob, with the wisps of hair on his dead head, begs us… he needs a potion from the owners sarcophagus… retrieve it and you shall be rewarded.”

    I sensed danger, but I knew I could be a brave witch. I walked past pumpkins and a ghost using an ethereal broom near the gravestones. A black cat purred behind me as I lifted up the heavy stone lid of the sarcophagus. Inside was a potion! I grabbed it and grinned. The wrinkled deed to Darkmoor was handed to me, and the elixir vanished.

    “Avast, thar matey, let me be tellin’ ye a story. Yesterday, a witch from Wizard city paid me a visit. She wanted a tour ‘o Monquista ‘n I acted as a tour guide ’til moon was in sky. In return, she offered me an unknown potion. “It tastes better than yum” she said. So I drank it ‘n suddenly a bunch ‘o Spooky Bobs, scary skeletons, ghouls ‘n Pumpkin head cats dangerously attacked me. I fought them bravely but they kept on comin’, those blisterin’ Baboons. Finally I fainted. When I woke up this day mornin’, th’ witch explained that it was all hallucination of me mind from th’ Halloween potion she offered me last nightfall. “It was a practical joke” laughed she ‘n rode off in her broom.
    So what is the moral of ’tis story? Beware the practical jokes of damning Witches and never trust them.”

    It was *Halloween *night. Clouds covered the *moon giving it a hazy appearance. A young *witch and her black *cat hid inside their home in Wizard City. The witch was *scared of Halloween and had heard rumors of *dangerous *ghouls roaming the streets during Halloween. Suddenly she heard knocking at the door. She thought that it might be a ghoul so she prepared her *broom for attack and *potions to heal herself with if necessary. She peeked through a window and saw that it was only her brother, *Bob, which was a *wizard, knocking at the door. He was wearing a *skeleton costume, which *spooked the witch a bit. She opened the door and told him to hurry inside because ghouls could be outside. Her brother laughed and told her that there weren’t any ghouls. He then invited her to a *pumpkin carving contest against him and his friends.

    It was Halloween night, and the wizard wandered into the Haunted cave. Stormdrain Tower stood tall at the end of the road. He remembered Spooky Bob’s dare, and even his broom shuddered beneath him. The ghouls and skeletons shuffled aimlessly through the streets, but he knew where he was to go.
    The moon had shown so full on that pretty witch’s hair, how could he have refused the dare in front of her? He was well aware of the dangers the tower held, they had all heard the stories. Malistaire’s revenge, they said, in the form of monsters and curses unimaginable. He didn’t know if he was more scared of them, or having the witch laugh at his cowardice.
    He was there now, at the tower. Smashed pumpkins littered the yard. He opened the door, potion in hand. He jumped as a cat skidded past him.
    Empty.

    It was a Halloween night in Wizard City and a scary man named Bob the Ghoul was talking about the towers. The lone wizard wandered the streets to find the tower then he saw a guy riding a broom and then noticed it was really a skeleton witch. Then he found a ghoul near the haunted towers and asked him about getting inside the tower and told him about his quest for the black cat. Then the ghoul told him that the place was open and he walked in with potions ready. The moon shown through the windows and he attacked a pumpkin and it exploded but he was not in danger.

    I am a black cat and I absolutely hate Halloween. All time of the year, we are the favorite creatures of all the residents of Wizard City like skeletons, ghouls, pumpkin Jacks and especially witches. Witches like to pet us, feed us and caress us. They like to pick us up with their potion stained hands and place us beside themselves on their brooms, zooming off into the moonless nights.
    But as soon as Halloween arrives, these same people get scared of us and started avoiding us like plagues. Spooky Bob once even went as far as to call me ‘Dangerous Bad Omen’ to my face. Then as soon as Halloween passes, these people become their old loving, caring selves again. Hypocrites, all of them. I sure will be glad when this Halloween farce is over. It would feel good to be loved again.

    It was a dark and windy Halloween night, the only light was that of the blood Moon. Spooky Bob and his wizard friends where going to Morganthe’s castle. At the gate spooky bob meet the first sign of danger. Two scary ghouls with fire cats standing by the gate. Spooky Bob used the deer knight spell and one shot all the guards. At the stairs to the inside of the mansion there was a skeleton with a pumpkin head. Fire with fire Spooky Bob said and everybody casted the headless horseman spell defeating the skeleton guard. Seeing the battle to come spooky bob and his friends used a potion. Breaking down the door to see the evil witch Morganthe sweeping with her broom. Taking a big breathe, spreading his feet apart and summoning his cousin bob the builder… three words were cried into the misty air “Trick Or Treat”…

    Upon the arrival of the moon up in night’s sky a sense of danger had arrived. On the corner of Spooky Street were Bob and his sister Brielle. Both of magical blood, one a wizard another a witch not much was scary to them. But once their brooms and potions had disappeared, things began to get spooky. Getting anxious Brielle pulled out a pumpkin cookie to share with Bob but as she was about to split the cookie a ghoul came running and pushed them down and took the cookie to feed his cat Cazookles. Brushing themselves off they start to walk home seeing their little brother Baeson dressed as a skeleton yelling “Happy Halloween” to which they replied thanks, Brielle then asked “do we have any pumpkin cookies in our candy giving pumpkin?, I’m a bit jealous”. Baeson asked why. Brielle replied with “I lost my edible friend”.

    It was Halloween night and danger lurked in the air. As Spooky Bob walked through the Haunted Cave danger shrieks filled the air. Scary ghouls, wizards and witches covered the streets going from house to house. In front of the houses skeleton cats played among the pumpkins. A bone chilling laughter filled the air as Spooky Bob looked up and saw a witch fly across the moon on her broom. “I want a potion that will do that!” A ghoul shouted. Ghouls of every size and shape surrounded him to watch the witch until his vision became nothing more than a black the shade of the darkest of nights.

    It was Halloween night. The moon shone its light over Bob as he went around trick-or-treating by himself. He didn’t have any friends but Bob loved Halloween! He loved all the costumes he saw from Ghouls to Pumpkins. He approached a house that was a little scary—his instincts were screaming danger! Being brave, he entered the property and rang the doorbell.

    A lady dressed as a witch holding a broom answered the door. “Why hello, young wizard.” A black cat walked around her feet.

    “Trick-or-treat!” Bob exclaimed.

    “Of course my darling. Here you go.” She placed a potion into my candy pail.

    If only Bob knew what was to happen to him. Not only would he suffer from memory loss, he would physically change. The potion—a real trick—turned him into a skeleton. Starting that night, he was no longer Bob, he was Spooky Bob.

    A petrifying sense of danger had emerged as the scintillating moon appeared in the night sky; shining upon the eerie atmosphere that was and is, Halloween. But, alas that was normal in the wizarding world. The great Wizard Spooky Bob, holding his cat Midnight, sped through the streets that were lined up with enormous pumpkins that possessed scary and almost frightening attributes. Sure there were numerous wizard’s flying around on brooms, but Bob was scared a ghoul might pop out of Gamma knows where and stupefy him. Slowly, but surely, Spooky Bob accomplished what he thought he couldn’t initially do; reach the ancient witch Dahlia’s house. Bob believed that the witch was a scary entity due to the fact that he heard shrieks and whispers coming from her house days before. Upon arriving, Bob peered through the window and immediately became awestruck: Dahlia was mixing potions with a skeleton
