Halloween Flash Fiction, October 31st, 2012

It is Halloween in a sleepy town; everyone was getting ready to celebrate the holiday, one could hear the voices of glee raised in rapture as they gathered together to create and buy costumes, crave pumpkins, finished the last touches on the haunted houses. The neighbours were looking forward to this full moon night. The moon glistened on the lake, and there sounds of laughter and screams late into the night. Adults and children were dressed up as creatures of the night, vampires, zombies, monsters, and all sorts of creepy disguises. They were getting ready to go house to house to collect that delicious treat. They went door to door, until they come to the old abandoned Victorian house, where the gruesome murders occurred years earlier. The family was rumoured to be evil. The father beat his children and wife and was declared a cruel man. The children tortured the animals and strange occurrences happened in that house. People started go missing and parents warn the little tykes and the reckless teenagers to stay away from that evil place. Except on this Halloween night, some foolish teenagers on a dare decided to climb over the pointy sharp iron rail fence and trespassed onto the property with the plan of breaking a window and sneak inside into the forbidden haunted house. They threw the rocks and the window shattered. The oldest of the three, Mike pulled out the broken glass pieces and the three were able to crawl through the picture window. In slow motion, as the glass fell to the ground so did the images of religious saints that were painted on it a long time ago by the superstitious village folks to keep the evil in. The teenagers did not realized by breaking the window, they unsealed the evil that was trapped in the house. An elderly man banged on the tall fence and screamed at the boys to warn them not to entered into the place. He knew the truth and was terrified of what they would find in that Hell, he yelled a warning to the boys not to go in. As they were crawling through the picture window, the shattered pieces of glass on the porch rose and started to dance in the air and like a puzzle the distorted saints came together but appeared to transformed into evil looking creatures, one would described as Beelzebub and his minions. The elderly man looked at the dancing object in awe and fear as he watched the slivers of glass come together like a mirror and glued itself back into place, once again into a full sealed window. Now the three were trapped inside with no way out. The silver hair man with the misty emerald eyes weep for the lost souls. On all Soul's Day they were found floating in the lake, barely alive, with their tongues cut out, no one knows what happened to those daring lads. Except the rumours of they suffer nightmares and are lost to the unknown darkness, silently screaming at unseen sensations. http://terriglong.com/blog/blogflash-halloween-2012-spooky-stories/
