JNW’s Halloween Challenge: Candy
When I was about 9 years old I went outside of my comfort zone for Halloween and dressed up as a Princess- I wore a sparkly crown and a Princess Dress.
It was pink and had a light blue sash.
I went to a house with a bunch of pumpkins in the yard and orange and black crepe paper streamers hanging in the windows.
I had never seen such a pretty Halloween House in my life.
I felt like belonged there.
When I knocked at the door the lady of the house opened the door and she was holding a tray with candied apples and popcorn balls and scattered around the try were little hard candies wrapped in purple and orange waxed paper.
It was breathtaking.
I said ‘trick or treat’ and she said,
” What are you supposed to be.”
” A Princess.”
She reached into a little bowl on a table just inside of her door and tossed a little candy bar into my treat bag,
” You’re no Princess little girl ” she said.
She looked like she was smelled something bad.
The door banged shut in my face.
On my way back to the road I kicked all of the pumpkins in the pretty Halloween House over and when someone asked me what I was doing I threw my crown at them.
Like the lady of the house said, I was no Princess- that was for sure.
