A New Best Friend for the Grim Reaper

A New Best Friend for the Grim Reaper

Halloween 2020, but just another working day for Cora. The usual crush on the bus left everyone clinging to the handrails as the driver lurched to a standstill at each stop. Most of the staff were back working in the office this month, including annoying Neville who continually popped round his perspex screen to lean […]

Crazy Daisy

Crazy Daisy

I knew my teacher hated me; my suspicions confirmed when she assigned me to Crazy Daisy for our social studies project. We were to help older people in the community with gardening and odd jobs. Daisy lived at the end of my street in a cottage with an extensive garden; once beautiful but now overgrown […]

The Dule Tree

The Dule Tree

Time with the cousins was always interesting, especially as I was the youngest and the only girl. “If you don’t want us to think you’re lily-livered, you have to go over the gate and touch the tree,” said George. “But, Grandpa said we mustn’t.” The sun had almost set, the shadows in the garden long. […]

Truly Scary Halloween

Truly Scary Halloween

Yellow, orange, and red maple leaves vied for attention on our front yard tree. Our neighbour’s ginkgo seemed to transform itself from green to a uniform yellow overnight. Pumpkins and other gourds adorned walkways, stairs, and porches. Some were carved into jack-o’-lanterns while others remained pristine. Skeletons hanging from tree limbs swayed in the autumn […]

The Haunted Prism

The Haunted Prism

Three trick or treat witches, exploding with excitement, ran to the enormous creepy cottage standing solitaire and situated at the end of the cul-de-sac. As they careered closer, a coinciding luminous light leapt out from the cottage’s stained glass window. The children carefully crept up the rickety, rackety ragged wooden porch steps. The steps cowered […]

Doll House

Doll House

Isobel smiled. Adorned in a pink frilly dress, with bouncing blonde ringlets tied in a bow, she looked identical to the doll in Ellie’s new bedroom. Isobel had made her promise not to tell anyone she was there, which Ellie had agreed felt like the most fun secret, and the two had soon become the […]

An UPIMC

An UPIMC

“It’s another lonely evening, in another lonely town…” I sing softly to AC/DC while raindrops amplify on my car’s window frame as my windshield wipers go in the same motion over and over again. Repetition. Life is a cycle of existential dread but I shall not succumb to just complaining. I was going to do […]

Mary’s Canary

Mary’s Canary

Topical events are always worth researching according to young Mary. She rarely leaves home, apart from attending school, preferring the company of her computer screen. She discovers All Hallows’ Eve combined both Christian and Celtic observances. It was a time when boundaries between the living and the dead were blurred. A gum wrapper blows through […]

Creepy Finds

Creepy Finds

Alvin and Cherry placed wreaths and lanterns along the riverside next to their house. This Halloween was their most anticipated one. This year Dad said they could wear costumes and go for trick and treat. “Mum is stitching costumes up for us!! I am so excited! I have been watching makeup lessons the whole October!” […]

Pick of the Patch

Pick of the Patch

The Autumn days were growing darker and damper, and although we made it to the patch days before Halloween, pickings were weak. Except one, a glorious pumpkin with an orange gleam that Lily grasped tight the whole journey home. The next day I grabbed an old dull knife for carving, only to find it sank […]

Things That Go Creak in the Night

Things That Go Creak in the Night

“You don’t mind, do you?”“Not at all.” Pubs weren’t much fun if you couldn’t drink. I fancied an early night anyway. Pregnancy makes you tired.“We’ll be cosy here,” said Mildrid. “We can watch an old film and have some hot chocolate. At least we won’t get bothered by trick-or-treaters up here. Not on a night […]
