Brenda sat outside with Cubbie on the spacious front porch of Malfour House, something she hadn’t done since moving in. Cubbie, evidently a Halloween freak, had gone out and bought fake, battery-operated pumpkins that lit up inside and laughed each time anyone made a sound, a huge skeleton door hanging and bags of miniature Snickers and Milky Way candies.
It was a cool night, and Brenda, dressed in a turtleneck sweater and wool pants, held a hot mug of coffee in her hands.
“I must admit, it’s nice being out here. I wish I’d done it more often before. Tina and I never found the time.” Brenda breathed in the chilly air and forced back the tinge of sadness that threatened to creep in and spoil the night. She looked over at Cubbie, who sat under a colorful blanket in the other Adirondack chair. “I’m not so sure about this Halloween stuff, though.” She looked at the decorations. “Not a single kid ever came knocking at our door. I told you we never got kids.”
Cubbie let out a deep sigh. “Well, I can’t believe it. In my neighborhood, the place always crawls with kids. I always buy two bags of candy and there is little left over,” she grumbled and burrowed deeper under the blanket.
“I’m not eating all that candy.” Brenda liked to tease her. “It’s all yours.” She looked up at the bright, full moon. It was a perfect night for goblins and little witches. She checked her watch and saw it was barely after 8 pm. “Say Cubbie, why don’t you go back to your neighborhood, take the candy and pass it out there?” Brenda thought it an excellent idea. She got up, stretched and nudged Cubbie on the arm. “I’m going for more coffee. Can I get you anything?”
Cubbie shook her head, and just as Brenda moved toward the door, her vision went black and the sounds around her became deadly quiet. What she saw in a foggy haze was a dark street surrounded by large trees. On the street was a dark red sports car, low and sleek. Though the windows were tinted too dark to see through, Brenda saw. Amanda Thurman sat in the passenger seat and the woman with the angry face and burning eyes was driving. In the backseat, Lisa’s son Nick lay motionless, a deep gash across his face. Brenda saw that he had a pirate hat and costume. The costume was slashed in places. He suddenly opened his mouth and began to scream. He screamed louder. Brenda covered her ears.
