Trick Or Treat

An alumnus of both Ficlets.com and Ficly.com. Who, for some weird reason, is starting his time here with an abundance of cannibalism-themes stories. O.o


The door bell rang. Again. God damned kids, he thought. Nothing better to do than disturb descent people and beg for candy.

He stomped to the door, and, just before opening it, put on his most pleasant face. The one he usually reserved for suckers... Sorry. For 'customers' at the car lot. He opened the door to a witch, two ghosts, and a skeleton yelling the traditional, "Trick or treat!"

"No candy tonight," he said.

The witch scowled at him. "But you're supposed to turn your porch light off, then," she reprimanded.

With a laugh, he told her, "That's the trick, you little brats!" and slammed the door shut.

He turned around, only to find the four suddenly behind him. "What the..." he started.

No!, the little girls voice screamed in his mind. This is the trick!

The lights in the house went out. He didn't even have time to scream.

At least, not in this world...

The neighbourhood kids need to work for their treats at my door. If they can't even spell Hallowe'en (with the apostrophe), they get sprouts. I'm getting mean in my old age.

I've never had that happen, though. Nice twist.
