The Jack-o’-lantern Burns Bright at the Berlot’s
Cobwebs and strings of skeleton lights hung overhead the frivolous partygoers. Jean sat nonchalantly in a far-off pool chair, distancing herself from the rambunctious crowd who seemed oblivious to the holiday they were celebrating. She wasn’t sure why she came to these things anymore. Every party ended up the same. Her bored out of her mind, with no interest in mingling with any of the buffoons there. That was college she supposed. Endless parties with little value, that everyone just had to attend.
A Date under the Full Moon
Dorian thought he’d first be graced by his date’s face that night, but it was the poison ivy teetering at him in an almost human-like gesture that greeted him first. It craned protectively over the frame of the front door, as if cynically guarding its home’s resident from entering predators. Yet there was no wind, and it seemed as if the plant had moved on its own accord. Dorian lifted one nervous knuckle and rapped against the door. Shortly after the door swung open and a sigh of relief passed through his lips. His date, Esmerelda, stood welcomingly before him, her eyes lit up with the same radiance that the full moon bathed them in on that night.
Payne of the Bite (Ch.9)
Kasey - Between that memory and memories of winning countless sporting championships in archery later in life was something Kasey reminisced on the most. To Kasey, they were memorable moments of her winning days. Trying to find a happy place among the hysteria, all Kasey could picture in her silence was the arrow flying directly in the center of her bullseye target sheet. A route to an exit began forming in Kasey's mind in the worst-case scenario where anything dangerous was to occur. The college dropout had heard reports months ago about nuclear plants shutting down all over Northern and Southern Carolina. There had been a lot more going on in those atomic plants than the shuttle leak that was described on the emergency news broadcast -- when a political statement was given out by the governors of Northern and Southern Carolina. These were the same governors who tried to reassure the rebelling citizens from rioting and attempting to stop these scientific cargo trains from reaching their destination months ago. Hopefully, when things quieted down, Kasey could get some practice in before going to her destination at the Mercy Hospital to visit her dying grandmother in the upstate North Carolina city.

The Haunted House
The line of cars stretches to infinity and beyond, or so it seems to Sal. Of all the stupid ideas… “I can’t believe I let you talk me into going to a ‘haunted house’ on Halloween night,” he says.
“Are you coming?” Nicole turned her dark eyes over her shoulder and down the creaking steps. Terry’ face reddened. He felt trapped. Had she caught him staring at her ass?
Shapeshifting Night Owl

His readiness of action is still and immaculate. Malor has been waiting to devour his prey with joyable ruthlessness. How could Malor feel any mercy for a man that abused his mother, privately molested him, and cowardly got rid of his dog that his mother and father bought him for his fifth birthday?
The House Down The Street
Once There was a girl named Sam, and she had just moved into a new house with her parents, Sam was 18 years old and loved to explore, one day she was doing her homework in her room when she noticed something out of the corner of her eye, she got up from her desk and looked out her window, and noticed lights flashing from the house down the street, she started to feel curious and decided she would go check it out the next day!!!
It's ok to be scared
The room was dark and very quiet, a few hushed whispers breaking the silence as the crowd settled in. Waiting. I looked around nervously, trying to pick up any hint of movement in the dim city hall. I brushed worriedly at my warm jacket with one hand, the other clutching tightly my little Siamese cat beanie baby, which I carried with me every where. A few minutes passed, and I began to relax into my seat, carefully tucking Snip into my pocket so I wouldn't lose her in the dark. I vaguely registered the sound of a door opening and closing, and was about to scan around the room again when...
Wondering how to make your next Halloween Party memorable?
Halloween possibly has more parties than almost any other day, second maybe to New Years. People of all ages love to dress up and pretend they're somebody else for a night. Most people conclude with more than one invitation to Halloween parties and have to elect one of them to attend.
Do we crave fear?
Fear and Halloween are probably going to be forever intertwined. After all, a holiday that celebrates “the ghastlier aspects of death and beyond” has to conjure up images of fear in some minds and mischief in others. However, fear and anxiety associated with the holiday aside, observing people’s behavior around Halloween can often show an interesting dichotomy to how people handle fear. The same concept also applies whenever most people are presented with an option to voluntarily view something they know is designed to scare them, such as a horror movie or visiting a haunted attraction. Proper observation can often make it apparent that fear is not quite as simple to understand as most individuals would like to assume.
