This year’s rules: Halloween story for kids, using the words glow-in-the-dark, goodies, and goosebumps–in 100 words or less!

By Amy Leskowski
92 words

A wander the wrong way allowed me to witness
what wee wads of sweets do to witches:
Goodies give Gwendolyn greenish-gray gums.
Imogene instantly itches.

Hilda heaves hard, hurling harmonized hiccups.
Bellatrix barks between blinks.
Griselda gets goosebumps that glow-in-the-dark.
Sherilynn shivers, then shrinks.

Bronwyn blows bubbles beneath burp-y breaths.
Sage suffers snail-spewing sneezes.
Yoselin yawns year-long yo-yoing yodels.
Winifred’s wart weeps and wheezes.

Marnie’s mole morphs into multiple masses.
Tina’s tongue thickens, then twitches.
So if sugary samples should spill from my sack,
I’ve vowed I will warn all the witches.
