Truffles' First Halloween: A 100 Word Story



Halloween night, all the trick or treaters had gone home. All evening I had been looking forward to my yearly reading of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

“Come on Truffles, time for bed!” I called to my beautiful tortoiseshell cat.

Mug of cocoa in hand I crawled under the covers, dimming the light on my bedside table.

Ichabod had just discovered that the cloaked rider’s head was not on his shoulders when I heard it…

Scratch.

Silence.

Scratch, scratch.

Opening my closet door I discover Truffles had gotten shut in!

“I’m sorry sweetie, were you scared? It’s over now.”
