Friday Story: Halloween

She fears halloween.

It is not that she is afraid of vampires or werewolves.

It is not that she is terrified of ghosts or shadowless figures.

It is not that she fears spiders and bats.

She does not.

She fears halloween.

She is afraid that the blood circulating in her body will no longer circulate.

She is terrified that the ghosts of the past may bring her disgust and discomfort.

She fears that the interconnecting webs of the dark cave will swallow her.

She fears halloween because she is afraid of the dark

and how it never leaves

and how it is bound to stay.
