The Trick or Treating Story

    This story is about the morning after trick-or-treating.
    I had my bowl of candy and was sorting it all out when, all of a sudden, I heard a scary sound.  I looked around and was aftaid of what I was going to see.  I noticed that my trick-or-treat bag was moving. I went to look inside the bag.  I heard the sound again.  This time the sound wasn't so scary.  I was pretty sure I had heard this sound before.  Now, I was excited to look into the bag.  Just when I was about to look inside, it moved again.  I took a deep breath, reached inside, and felt something soft.  I opened the bag and out jumped my neighbor's puppy!  He must not be claustrophobic!
    The next thing I knew, the phone rang.  My neighbor called to say her dog was missing and was known to be a candy thief.  I told her that I found him.  My neighbor was happy when I said I would bring the puppy back home - but guess what?  She asked me if I wanted to keep the puppy because she knew how much we liked each other. That was the best Halloween treat I ever got!  It's a good thing I am not  puppy-phobic !  The End.
Story by Ryan B. in first-grade.
One dark, spooky Halloween night I was going into my bedroom when I saw the shadows of a Raptor, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Deinonychus, Dimetrodon, lions, and jaguars.  But when I turned on the light, I saw it was only my toys!!  Then I went Trick-or-Treating and there was one house that was very, very scary!  It had a ghost, a bat, a mummy, a scary skeleton, a scary owl, a crow, a web, a spider, a bat and a mad cat!  I have Ascarythingsphobia, so I was about to turn and run, but then the lights came on and when somebody opened the door, I saw that it was only my Grandma and Grandpa!  They gave me lots of candy!
