I walked with my friends down the road. This was different than normal through we were missing some people.
Earlier that day, I sat at the marble counter with a Poland spring water bottle in my hand and the fruit bowl shaped skeleton head that is supposed to be a mask. It’s plastic smell filled my nose after i tried it on. I heard my brothers get into their costumes. Outside 3 orange cycles burned with carved smiles. Those mouths would light the night. I glanced at the “mask”. I got it because I did not what one that would be uncomfortable but this one was not that great. I leaned back on the chair a little bit. All I need this year was a mask (and well a bag).
Halloween, 5:30 P.M.
I was going to eat dinner then go treat or treating. We had to get candy for some who broke their hand but that was not that big a deal. Then it was announced that the 8th graders would go first.
That was unexpected.
I told dad and a flashlight and everything was read. Not really. I was nervous. This was the first Halloween I was alone. What would happen! But at the same time that was kind of cool. It was the first Halloween I was alone.
It started okay the first 3 house were fine. I started to follow the other 8th graders when 3 of us stopped me. There was a long drive way they wanted to go down and they wanted my flashlight.
“No” I said.
“Just a second.”
This was unexpected by someone who said that there was nothing there.
10 or some minutes later we came to my house. There was a bucket that said only take one.
That was not followed.
I ask the person why.
“You took 2.”
“It’s not for me.”
I had forgot that we had to get extra candy for someone. I thought i should stop worrying it is Halloween.
After what felt like a minute we were back at the party. I stayed because i did not want to go to another street.
I went back with my mom to restock candy at our house. I tapped my foot wondering if i should have went to the other road. I was not doing anything else. Some people from our group were walking back.
“Can I go with them mom?” I asked.
We walked on back on hit a house we did not get before.
I decided that I should calm down. It is a holiday. Everyone played video games for the rest of the party.
