The Black-toothed Monster
My cousin Terry was driving us home from Maya's Halloween party when I heard our front tire blow out. We pulled over on a lonely stretch of road and got out to examine the wheel. The wheel had a big black tooth stuck in it.
We looked under the car and saw a hole in the ground. Terry and I went down through the hole to find ourselves in the basement of an old house. We crept up the stairs. When we got to the top we saw that all of the windows and the front door were boarded up with three layers of wood. Just then we saw the most hideous thing ever a monster with sharp, black teeth and red eyes. Worst of all was that the monster was a big green glob that was missing a tooth! We screamed, "aaa!!" Then we ran and broke down the boarded up front door to escape. But, when we got outside, other monsters surrounded us. They were terrible!
Terry and I spotted a water gun and I grabbed it. Just at the same time that I grabbed for the water gun a monster jumped at us. I shot him with the water gun. The water made the monster blow up. We quickly figured out that water destroyed the monsters. Soon we had shot all of them. But, just when we thought we were safe, a UFO landed nearby. Out of the spaceship came a 20-foot tall creature. I threw the whole water gun at the creature and we ran back to our car. We called a mechanic to help us fix the car so we could go home.

My cousin Terry was driving us home from Maya's Halloween party when I heard our front tire blow out. We pulled over on a lonely stretch of road and got out to examine the wheel. That's when we heard a loud noise that made us jump out of our skin. We took a look around but couldn't see what was going on. Terry was walking all over the place to find out what was going on then he saw it. It was two little boys who were being bad men for Halloween.
The boys had fake guns that they had shot off.
Terry said, "Those little boys shot of their fake guns."
I was happy to here that. After that, we called a tow truck with Terry's cell phone. When we got home our mother said, "What took you so long?"
So, we told her what happened. After that it was only 6 p.m. so we went trick-or-treating. While we were trick-or-treating, we saw witches, goblins, nerd, bats, puppies and clowns. Terry and I went to some of my friends' houses like Lexi, Gretchen and Addison's house to trick-or-treat. After that we got ice cream. I got chocolate ice cream. It was delicious. When we go back home we poured out all of our candy and counted it. Terry and I always have a contest. Terry usually wins but this year I had one more piece of candy than Terry. It was a very spooky piece of candy. Whenever I looked at it, I got goose bumps. I tried to not think about it that night, but I couldn't stop thinking about it.
I had a scary dream about the piece of candy. The next morning, I told all of my friends about the piece of candy and they got very scared.
P.S. Have fun trick-or-treating.
P.S.S. Hope you get a lot of candy.
