A Halloween Flash Fiction Contest for Bloggers!

Author Matt Dinneman has posted this fab contest on his blog, Fireflies in the Cloud

Here's my entry:

Tasty Treats

I love Halloween. Abby is finally old enough to trick or treat and I made her the cutest costume. She giggles every time she sees it.

I cautioned her not to talk about it, though. We have neighbors who don't celebrate Halloween and I don't want them ruining this experience for Abby.

This year, when the first little princess rings the bell and shouts, "Trick or treat" Abby will switch places with her and be on her way to a new family. And I'll have another little girl – either a tasty snack or a protégé, depending on the bite.

That's a great idea! I mean, for a horror story, not for real life...
