100 Word Stories



Beware on Halloween. Who knocks on your door may want you for the treat, and that’s no trick!

Kayla did not expect the next trick or treater on Halloween night to be a monster. 

Her parents went out and her head hurt from Algebra homework. Kayla’s only motivation was the aroma of pumpkin cookies from the kitchen. 

The doorbell rang.

 Kayla put down her pencil and headed downstairs. As soon as she opened the door, a hideous creature greeted her: a monster with a dragon head, pterodactyl wings, a bear’s body, tiger paws, and a crocodile tail. 

Kayla screamed in horror! The terrifying monster grabbed her and flew off into the starry, Halloween night sky.
