You know how, on Halloween night, people always gather around the campfire and tell scary stories about strange things lurking in the woods and nobody believes them? Well, sometimes those stories are true.
Last year, just before Halloween, I was at home watching TV when I heard a knock on the front door. When I went to answer it, I found a dog standing on the front porch. I looked around, but I couldn’t see the owner anywhere.
The dog seemed to be lost. I wasn’t sure what breed he was, but he looked like a Siberian Husky. His tongue was hanging out and he was panting like he was thirsty, so I put out a bowl of water for him. The dog lapped it up greedily.
Ever since I was a little girl, I had always wanted a pet dog, but my parents would never allow me to have one. I didn’t want to bring him inside the house, so I put him in the back yard. I gave him some leftovers to eat, but he just turned up his nose at them and refused to touch anything.
That evening, when my parents came home, I told them about the lost dog. At first, they told me I would have to get rid of it, but after much begging and pleading, they told me I could keep it. However, they didn’t want it inside the house. My mother was allergic to dogs.
The dog slept in the garden shed. In the middle of the night, I woke up and looked out my bedroom window. I could see the dog’s glowing eyes in the darkness. It seemed like he was just standing there, staring up at me. It gave me a very eerie feeling.
The next day was Halloween. In the morning, I went to the store and bought a can of dog food. When I got home, I opened it and put it into a bowl. The dog looked very hungry, but he refused to eat the dog food. I couldn’t understand what was wrong with him.
That evening, little kids were running up and down the street, dressed in their Halloween costumes. It kind of made me wish i wasn’t too old for trick-or-treating. I decided to take the dog for a walk in the forest behind our house.
After a while, we came across a group of three teenage girls who were camping in the forest. They were planning to have a Halloween party in the woods and they had brought some food and drinks with them. - 3 minutes ago
