Saturday Centus - Haunted House? Part Two

I couldn't resist. This was such a fun prompt, and I couldn't let the boys run screaming into the night without knowing what was in that house. So I've written a second story. Same prompt, same rules. Don't have a clue what I'm talking about? Click here to read the first part of this story. Click here to visit Jenny and her amazing band of Centusians for Saturday Centus!


Haunted House? Part two

With the curtain parted, Frankie watched the boys run screaming down the street. Laughed so hard he got a bellyache. Nobody was going to win 5 bucks from him, even if it meant sneaking into this creepy old place to play a prank on his little brothers. What goobers! Greg probably wet his pants when that curtain moved, and Bill took off so fast Frankie swore his sneakers were smoking. Now he just had to slip out without being seen. If the folks knew he'd been in the Sawyer place, they'd tan his hide.

Funny, he didn't remember locking that door behind him...

Kat,

Sounds like something my three brothers would have done to me. Well crafted and so visual, as always. Smoking sneakers and wet pants! I'm now waiting for next Saturday!

Namaste..........cj

HA! HA! Now you have to write another one about something scaring Frankie before he gets out of the house! You do such a great job with this. Heck! My comments are longer than 100 words, and you say so much with those 100 words. laurie

The selection of words used to relay to the reader the tale from the boys point of view...(goobers and wet his pants) ...
Definitely puts you in his mind set~

And now...he does indeed have a Tom Sawyer event ready to unfold~!!!!

Jenny said...

I love you!

I was so excited when this link opened...but darn you girl, you still left us hanging.

I like the 'Tom Sawyer' feel of this. Clever writing... Next, please!
