SEAN GRIMES ’12 | Special to The Tower Pulse
Deep within the forest between the Twin Rivers stand a little town named Ghostly Wake, in that town was a girl named Kate. She was a short girl with short black hair and a mean-spirited personality. Everyone in the town disliked her with a burning passion. She was spoiled rotten because her father was the mayor and she could get away with just about anything.
Kate was known for stealing candy from people younger than she was and making fun of everyone. She decided one day that she would mess with old lady Adams by stealing her prize pumpkin and smashing it.
Old lady Adams wasn’t one that anyone messed with mostly for the fact that there was a rumor around that she was a witch. So Kate came to the gate of old lady Adams’ house and opened the gate and went into her yard. The yard was full of tall grass and willow trees. Kate used the shadows of the willow trees to sneak around the back of the house.
There she found the prize-winning pumpkin she came here for and just as she was reaching for it someone yelled “STOP!” It was old lady Adams she was standing on her back porch swinging her first in the air.
“You came here to steal my pumpkin then I will have your soul,” said Adams. Kate started laughing; she had never heard such nonsense before. She took the pumpkin and ran home. That night the pumpkin started to glow a bright red color. Kate stared at the pumpkin that was glowing a bright reddish glow. She picked up the knife that was sitting on the counter next to the pumpkin. She lowered the knife and the glow grew brighter.
As she cut into the pumpkin a bright light came out of the pumpkin. It was death himself come to steal her soul. He grabbed her by her shirt and dragged her into the pumpkin.
