So, I know some of you out there have these super intelligent, smart and amazing children, so this may not impress you too much. But when it's your own child, sometimes you are amazed at what they do. Madilyn wrote this Halloween story for school, and I thought it was pretty good, so I wanted to share it.

One dark Halloween night, a little girl named Amy gets scared. She believes in ghosts and monsters. Amy always tells Amanda there is such a thing as ghosts and monsters. Amy tells Amanda that the ghosts come out because there is no full moon.

On Halloween night, their parents are going to a party. Amanda has to take Amy trick-or-treating. They find a book while they are trick-or-treating. The book said Don't read aloud. Then there was a monster that came alive. They just didn't know it yet.

They go back home. Then Amy goes to bed. She can't get to sleep because she is scared that there is a monster in her closet. She screams three times. The third time, there was slime on the window. Amy and Amanda were scared. They hid in the closet that was very empty. It was very, very scary. Then all of the sudden the power went out. Amanda went outside to turn the power back on. She came back inside and Amy was gone.

She called her parents. Nobody answers. She read the book again but not out loud. It said that the monster leaves slime on the window, turns the power off, and then captures little ones. Amanda is as scared as ever. She called her parents again. Still, nobody answers. Then her parents came in the door and asked if Amy was in bed. Amanda said she was all snuggled warm in bed. But she wasn't. Her family never found Amy again.
