The 7th Annual Halloweensie Writing Contest hosted by Susanna Leonard Hill.
The Contest: write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children (children here defined as 12 and under) (title not included in the 100 words). You must use the words candy corn, monster and shadow. Here is my entry below:
The Candy Corn Monster
Lily’s favorite day had arrived. At exactly 5:30 p.m. she dressed in a spiky-hair white wig, bright orange dress and canary yellow high-top tennis shoes. Smiling in the mirror, she was proud of her homemade candy corn costume. Once outside, she shadowed behind the other trick-or-treating children as they ran from house to house. Lily held out her sack and the homeowners filled it with treats. Not a single person noticing that under Lily’s outfit she was a real two-horned, five teeth, three-foot tall, blue haired purple monster who loved Halloween.

Hahaha! Clever Lily! She did quite the job with the costume, fooling everyone so completely! Who would suspect an innocent candy corn of being a monster?! 🙂 Thanks for joining in the Halloweensie fun, Carole!
