Here is my entry … Dawn Renee Young / 98 words


Trent was excited about the goodies he collected trick-or-treating.

But he had an eerie feeling. Each step he took he sensed he was being watched.

Rounding the corner a pair of green glow-in-the-dark eyes stand at him.

Goosebumps raced up and down his arms.

Ignoring the eyes, he sprinted off to the next house. Suddenly he felt something

soft rub against his leg. A familiar MEOW sounded and KER-PLUNK!

The set of glow-in-the-dark eyes peered over the side of his candy bucket.

It was Tabby his cat. How did Tabby get into Trent’s glow-in-the-dark paint?

Dawn Young / 197 words / BROTHERLY LOVE

Ian loved his three brothers. But he loved practicing his trumpet more. He practiced winter, spring, summer, and fall. His brother, Adam was his biggest fan. Where ever Ian went Adam followed. Hunter and Elliot tried to avoid the loud trumpet noise. It was impossible! Ian serenaded his family before breakfast.  He practiced in the bathroom. Mom said, “Absolutely not!” He practiced in the car, Dad said, “Absolutely not!” He practiced his trumpet from his top bunk. No one could sleep! When Ian played one note, Hunter and Elliot buried their heads under pillows. Adam watched his hero and smiled. One morning Dad called a family meeting. “Ian, your brothers, Mom and I love you very much. We are so proud of the way you have committed to practicing your trumpet. But it is time to make a change.” Ian’s top lip began to quiver. What was Dad saying?   “We have decided there will be no more trumpet practice in the house,” said Mom. Ian’s eyes began to water. “We are turning our treehouse into a music studio,” said Hunter. “Just for you,” said Elliot. “Thanks,” Ian whispered. “I want to play drums,” said Adam. Everyone laughed.

Blessings Until Next Time,
