Magical Night, Part 3

Durin knocked on the door.
"Trick or treat!" they shouted as the door opened.

As she proffered the basket of sweet goodies, Mrs. Mulligan called out, "Byron, you must come see these wonderful Faery costumes." Scarcely had Mr. Mulligan risen from his chair than he heard Mrs. Mulligan exclaim, "Oh my!", as she watched our trio of flittering Faeries fly up and away into the moonlit night with the whole basket of goodies.

This three part story is presented in response to the weekly, prompted, creative writing meme, Saturday Centus. This wonderful exercise is brought to us by Jenny Matlock.

  1. I loved this Jeff. You have a great imagination. And Halloween does seem magical at times, doesn't it? The last scene made me smile. All I could think of was Mrs. Kravitz from "Bewitched" and her "sick headaches" LOL Kat

  10. Jeff! You really rocked this. I love the magical flight of fancy you took us on here.

    And I can see those gossamer wings shimmering with effort as they struggled to carry the basket away!

    Really, really neat Jeff!

    Thanks for sharing these magical words with us.
