Once upon a time there were 500 horses in the barn. All of them were horse vampires, and all of their names were Annika. There was one mommy horse named Jenn. There was one daddy horse named Brian. All the horses went out to find some blood. All the horses went in a boy line and a girl line to one house.
All the people in that house thought they were plain horses. They opened the door to give them carrots, and the horses attacked them to suck their blood.
The Horse vampires spent all night going to houses sucking people’s blood. When they got back to the barn, every horse spits the blood they swallowed into a bow, and they make blood soup. All 500-horse vampires eat the soup together.
Watch out on Halloween, as there may be a horse vampire trick-or-treating in Granby.

“The Halloween Hound”
The Halloween Hound was at my birthday party. I was in the kitchen playing a game when I saw him. He told me to come in the bedroom that had no lights on. I did not want to go in the dark bedroom. He wanted to suck my blood, so I grabbed the coffee maker, and I hit him in the head with it.
He did not get knocked out. He got mad. He then went after my sister, Annika. He carried her in the dark bedroom to suck her blood. I broke down the door, and I ran and jumped and kicked him in the face. Annika got away and ran out of the room. I cut his head off with my Mom and Dad’s rusty saw.
The Halloween Hound died, and I went back to my birthday party. Part of my party was camping, so we left. We went camping in Hot Sulphur Springs. We were telling scary stories in the tent when there was a sudden squeaking sound. The tent started unzipping…my Dad poked his head in the tent and asked if any of us wanted some Hot Chocolate and S’Mores.

“The American Girl Dolls’ Haunted Halloween”
Once upon a time, the American Girl dolls were having a Halloween party at their house. The Evil Pumpkin came along. He said, “You better give me all your money.”
They said, “No. You were not invited to our Halloween party.”
They ran, and he did not catch them. He left a pair of pants (that could walk on their own) in their bedroom. He was hoping that these pants would get the American Girl dolls. The girls saw these strange jeans, so they called the cops.
The pants went in the closet when the dolls called the cops, and the dolls did not know it. The cops came, and they couldn’t find the pair of pants. Once the cops left, the pants reappeared.
The American Girls dolls saw the pants, and they got scared. They called the cops again.
Again, the cops drover over to the American Girl dolls’ house. Again, the pants hid in the closet. Again, the cops couldn’t find the pants. The cops were mad, and they said they are not going to come back to the dolls’ house again tonight.
(“The American Girl Dolls’ Haunted Halloween” continued…)
The pants heard that, so they were going to make the dolls scared when the cops left. The dolls were eating Halloween cookies when the pants jumped out in front of them in the kitchen.
They wanted to call the cops, but they knew the cops wouldn’t come. So they hid instead. They hid in the closet.
The Evil Pumpkin reappeared. The dolls heard the Evil Pumpkin outside the closet door. They could see the fire in its eyes through the slits in the door. The Evil Pumpkin quickly opened the closet door. The dolls could now see the house was on fire.
The dolls called 9-1-1, and they ran to their “meeting place”. The firefighters came and put the fire out. The dolls went to friend’s house where they would be safe until the Evil Pumpkin finds them again ….

I got started on my home work. The word that Grandma said kept comeing in my head. Always be good. Always be good. Always be good. I couldn’t take it. The next day I went to school. It was a sunny, bright day. When I went up to a kindergardener and stole his lunch. He creid and cried. I didn’t care, I ran inside to put it in my backpack. When I went back outside there was nobody there. It was like a graveyard or even a ghost town. I ran inside, still nobody at all! “could school be over?” I asked myself. I looked at the time, it was 8:20. “It can’t be over!” I walked home. The whole way there was nobody. I saw a spooky abandon house. I walked inside SLAM! The door shut all by itself. At least that’s what I thought. Suddenly a ghost came running after me, then dissapeard! I was so scared . So I ran out there as fast as I could. When I got home, still nobody! Then I finally figured it out! I was in the Twilight zone. Then I finally saw a old man walk up the street. For some strange reason, I could see fur on hom! He magicly turned into a werewolf! He ran after me until I was all the way at my grandma’s house. (5.2 mph). I ran inside the old house, and slammed the door in his face. Then a creepy zombie was right in front of me! I jumped out the window and got eye contact with the werewolf and then the zombie. I took a run for it and came in counter with a vampire! I was fooled at first, but then he smiled and I ran and ran and ran. A twig stopped me in my path and I tripped. The werewolf was about to rip me to shreds, but then some thing happened …. I woke up! It was all a big nighmare! “I’m alive!” I said with excitement. I was happy for the rest of the day. For some strang reason the boys lunch was still in my backpack..So, are you mean?

Then all of a sudden, the cat rant into the old nursing home in Fraser Colorado.
“Let’s go get the kitty!” screamed Leah. Then Leah started to run towards the nursing home, but Zach stopped her and said, “No Leah, Don’t go in there!” “Why not?” asked Leah. “haven’t you heard the story about the Fraser Nursing Home?” Jack asked. “Yeah, haven’t you?” said Zach?
“The story goes like this…” Jack said in a scary voice. “In 1871, the police came to the Fraser Nursing Home. They rang the doorbell three times. Then a small man in a wheelchair came to the door. His name was Edgar. “Can I help you officers?” said Edgar in a nervous voice. The first officer said “Find another home!” “Why?” asked Edgar in a sad tone. The police pulled out a sheet showing that the nursing home taxes hadn’t been paid in five years. The police officers came inside and took all of Edgar’s friends including his wife! Edgar swore that if another person came to his door, they would perish…”
(“A Frightful Night at the Nursing Home” continued…)
“It can’t be true, it just can’t!” said Leah in a nervous tone. Then she started to run in her little Tinker Bell dress toward the nursing home. “Stop!” said Zach as he ran towards her in his Spider Man suit. But Leah kept running. Then Jack starting running towards them in his Bubble Bee suit shouting “Stop, Stop!”
In a heartbeat, Leah was at the nursing home door saying “neener, neener, neener!” Zach and Jack said at the same time, “No, Stop!” Leah started to laugh. She range the doorbell once and nothing happened. She rang the doorbell once again and nothing occurred. She rang the doorbell one last time and it was silent. She started to laugh. “Ha, ha, ha in your face Jack!”
Then Jack started to frown. Suddenly Leah heard a creepy noise. Creek, creek, creek! The door cracked open. Then Zach saw a pair of blood red eyes peeking through the crack saying “I will kill you!” Leah screamed as loud as she could. But there was no hope. No one could hear her. The Edgar said, “Scram kids, before I boil you in my pot of souls!”
The little kids said that they were sorry to hear about his wife. Edgar was surprised that they knew what had happened to his wife. He came out with a bowl of candy on his lap and said “Thank you for carin.” Here you go kids and have a happy Halloween!”
