Post the members of Ravish your attempt at fictional, short-story, or based on a true story, story, which is Halloween-themed. To be Halloween-Themed it need not be scary. A story about children trick or Treating is still Halloween-themed. Each writer may submit up to 4,500 words or as few as 1000. This should be original work, the first posting of said work, and please refrain from posting elsewhere until the posting period here has expired. The story must published here between October 1, and Saturday October 31st.

Use any number of the following Prompts or none at all, totally your choice.

Take a walk down memory lane, all dress up for Halloween.

Put your characters in a cemetery

See where this tunnel, road, path takes you

Ready, Set, Create for us your best, as you always do, and lets have fun for Halloween.

I guess I'm first.

Halloween is for Atoning
The rumors about me are scurrilous, depraved rantings of a sick mind, and I categorically deny any sense of falsehood attributed to them.

Bit too late for first, but being the second to enter is cool too.

I'm so glad we have entries. I have no idea if I can get time to write this month or not.

I did start a story for this contest but never got time to finish it. Still don't have that the time. Pulled up some other unfinished tales today, hoping one was further along and I might finish it. But nothing strikes my fancy. I might try a flash story but I doubt I'll be entering this month.

Okay, I did a flash story, not much editing, hope it isn't to rough.

Here is my entry for October's Writing Contest (2020)

A flash chronicle concerning a monster, appropriate for Halloween. However, this monster is all to human for comfort.
