100-word story: Trick or Treat

A vampire. A monster. Wonder Woman. These were the costumes of the kids I was taking trick-or-treating. As we walked to the next house, a bush near us began to move. It was in a front yard decorated as a cemetery with ghosts and skeletons hanging from the trees. We froze. A figure with green skin jumped out of the bush. “Trick or treat!” My heart skipped a beat. The kids screamed and ran. I crossed my arms and glared at my friend, who was laughing. “Did you really have to do that?” “Bwa-ha-ha. Happy Halloween!”
