The sunny morning didn’t feel right on a day like this. It was the day that the dead visited Earth. Yeah, ghosts. They sound terrifying but they are usually just annoying. Anyway, I’m Carrie Smith, one of the lucky living people who get to deal with ghosts on Halloween. First, I get to wake up to a really loud call.
“Wake up!” General Monty yells at me. “Time to get up!”
Trudging out of bed, I can smell breakfast cooking downstairs. That usually gets me a jump start in the morning.
“Food is ready, Carrie!” Lady Sizzle calls. “It’s ghost bacon and scrambled eggs!”
After breakfast, I go to my room, where my clothing is already picked out for me by some little ghost girls. Then I head off to school, where ghost children are going to class like everyone else.
“The answer is 62!” They call out during math. “Or 57. I can’t remember.”
When I get home from school, a huge celebration is in my house. Ghosts are partying to music, eating food, and causing a huge mess!
“Stop!” I yell. “Get out now!”
“Aww man!” One ghost said. “Such a buzzkill!”
Then, all the ghosts clean up and leave. I know I made them sad but they do this every year! After they leave, they usually go get ready for trick or treating. Everyone goes as a ghost on Halloween. It’s the one day everyone can be the same, even the dead.
“I want candy!” Annoying little kid ghosts screech. “I want it now!”
They collect lots of candy and at midnight, they go back to Ghost Town. That means I have to wait a whole 365 days until I have to deal with them again. Despite me being annoyed, I always miss them after they leave.
