It's the time of year for creepy, spooky, chilling tales. So each year, together with some of my writing chums, we produce some eerie short stories to get you in the mood for all of the frights and horrors that the 31st of October might bring.
Enjoy! And check under the bed one last time.
He wasn't allowed to go trick or treating with his friends. But this year, something was coming to find him.
His friends had talked all day about their costumes and which houses gave out the most treats. But Mum and Dad wouldn't let him go. When he tries to sneak out at midnight to catch a glimpse of something, anything from Halloween, he finds that something has come to find him. Something that wants to be let in.
