Halloweensie Contest 2016

The following is my entry for the 2016 Halloweensie Contest, run by the ever amazing Susanna Leonard Hill.

Night Fright by Meagan Friedman

“Ah, perfect,” Webster the spider said as he put on his vampire costume. “This will scare everyone.”

Unfortunately, he didn’t scare anyone at all.

“Not a single scream,” he complained.

Luckily, he had backup costumes.

Now he’d be a ghost!

“Not a single scream.”

How about a mummy?

“Not a single scream.”


“Not a single scream!”

Webster gave up and went home. If you couldn’t be scary on Halloween, what’s the point?

As Webster sat in the moonlight, everything started to shake.

“AAAAH! A SPIDER!” someone yelled as they walked through his web.

Webster smiled.

  1. Megan…hello…nice to connect with you in Susanna’s Halloweensie Contest. I love the twist at the end…sometimes it’s best to just be who we are. 😉 Good luck with your wonderful story. 😉


  2. Hahaha! Love that just being who he was was the scariest of all! You did a great job making his personality shine through Meagan, with his continued attempts and back-up costumes 🙂 Love that his name is Webster 🙂 Thanks so much for joining in the Halloweensie fun!
