The Werewolf on Halloween Night
by Ashley, age six
On Halloween night, I was trick-or-treating with my friends. They told me that on Halloween night a werewolf comes out of the woods and catches kids when they are out trick-or-treating. I wasn't afraid.
I was walking to another house for candy and saw my Daddy and sister taking to the neighbor. I saw the werewolf come out of the bushes, grab my sister and run into the woods. I was scared but I had to save her.
I ran after them as fast I could. When I finally caught up with them, I kicked the werewolf in the leg. He dropped my sister and howled and hopped around. I took my sister's hand and we walked home.
My sister was scared. I said, "Don't worry. The werewolf is gone." And we never heard or saw him again.
