The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
Every year it’s the same damn thing. Rocks through our windows, kids partying in our yard, some even break in to the house and act like it’s theirs. The rest of the year they leave us alone, but not tonight.
I don’t know why they won’t just let us be. Mama and Daddy told me long ago that they don’t like our kind, but I don’t understand why. We never bother them. Grand-mama says it’s the house that makes them come up here and act that way on Halloween. I’m tired of the excuses, I want to do something. The family says it would only make things worse for us. That it’s better to deal with it for the one day instead of being harassed all year long. I get it, but still. It’s not right.
Ugh. Here they come up the hill. What the…? Did they just egg Grand-papa’s headstone? Are you kidding me? I’m so done. They best stay away from me ‘cause I ain’t like Mama and Daddy.
“No, Mama! I am not going to go hide. Not anymore. You go with Daddy, and take Grand-mama up to the attic. I’m staying down here.” “Yes, I promise not to start anything. I just don’t want to hide anymore.” “Yes, Mama. I know. Now go. I’ll let you know when they are gone.”
Look at them down there. Bunch of animals. He’s kind of cute though, even if he is gawking at me. Woah! That’s it I’m putting an end to this once and for all. I did not start this, Mama, they did with that rock chucked at my head.

HALLOWEEN PARTY ENDS IN TEEN TRAGEDY
One teen killed, twelve others sent to hospital with extensive hearing damage, and multiple abrasions, one male also losing both eyes, when a party at the abandoned Davidson home went terribly wrong.
Many of those injured are claiming a female figure began screaming from inside the old Davidson founders’ home, followed by a tornado type wind throwing debris at them. Police have searched the empty structure and have found no sign of any intruders.
The investigation continues.
