Halloween Drabble



Happy Halloween! 


Enjoy my Halloween-inspired drabble. Have a scary good time today!

Drew hated his parents’ Halloween parties. He’d rather be skateboarding than manning the buffet table. Couldn’t they hide the decay of their marriage like everyone else, behind closed doors?

A witch busting the seams of her costume approached.

He gave the prepared greeting. “Welcome to the Unforsaken Feast! Ooooooooo!”

“Is that you, Andrew?”

He clinched his teeth. “Yes, Mrs. Baer.”

She grabbed two Deadly Chocolate Cakes. “So, whose ghost are you supposed to be?”

“The ghost of my childhood.”

“Haha! You slay me.”

He rolled his eyes. She continued to fill her plate.

Under his breath, “Who says that shit?”
