The Tale of the Two Pumpkins

Once upon a time in a far away land, there lived two magical pumpkins. Every Halloween night they would come to life and scare every person to walk by the haunted house. But not only would they scare them, they would cast a spell on them. These spells were not always bad, sometimes they were good, like when they saw a princess walk by they set a sparkle spell on her and she would glow like the morning sun. But most of these spells last till Halloween is over, but the bad ones last forever.

But the Halloween night of 2008 had come and everyone was set and ready to go till they found the two magical pumpkins had got loose. Everyone was so scared to go outside, but guess what they did?

"You know sometimes you got to take the risk," said Susie.

"Yeah, but I'm still so scared," said Mary.

The night went by and it began to get scarier and scarier.

About ten minutes later, Susie was feeling a little weird. She said she had a headache, stomachache, and other things. Mary looked it up in the Halloween sickness book and she realized it had been a spell from the pumpkins, The Wear Wolf Spell.

Mary was so scared that she ran away. Seconds after Mary left the spell had activated and she had been cursed.
