Chapter 2
A strange visit

Chapter Description: Jason is visited by Mrs. Rudor, the crazy woman on the street

It all began just moments after my parents took my 14 year old brother Peter and my 10 year sister Jamie out to go trick or treating.

"Now Jason, if you have any problems just give us a call. We will have our cell phones on for the whole time" my mom explained to me.

"I know you said the same thing last year and the year before that".

"We just want to make sure that you wont have any problems" said my dad

"Ill be fine just go ahead before Peter and Jamie get restless."

"Alright, we shouldn’t be that long. It will probably take us around 2 hours."

Soon after my parents left with Peter and Jamie. I plopped down on the couch and turned on the TV and of course the only thing on was Halloween shows, movies and specials. The problem you have either seen them all or don’t care for it. So watching TV was out of the question. So you just decided to just sit down and wait for the trick or treaters to come and sure enough 5 minutes later they did. It was crazy, it seemed that every 5 seconds more kids. It wouldn’t stop. Luckily, my parents knew this would happen and bought enough candy to last all night...hopefully.

In just 30 minutes, nearly a hundred kids showed up. Now I know what you are thinking, how on earth could there be that many kids in one area. Well we live in very big neighborhood were almost every household where there were at least 3 kids. It was a quite neighborhood where nothing happened most of the time. Now every part of town has a crazy old woman who lives by themselves. Some has dozens of cats, some pretend their dead husbands are alive and there are even some that scream at kids for little at the road the wrong way. Now I wish we had the screaming one compared to the one who lives near us.

A few houses down the road near the end of our street there is a house that our crazy old woman lives in. All those kind of old women I mentioned are nothing compared to Mrs. Rudor. Now no one sees her out of her house that often but she does appear looking out the window in a weird glare. A sort of dead look. Now that doesn’t make her weird. No it’s a lot worst. The few times she does come out of her house is when something is bothering her. The last time was when the Johnson’s dog had pissed on her lawn. She ran out and started speaking weird. Like it was in tongue or something. Then a few days later, the dog was found dead. You know what the strangest part was? The dog was in perfect health. It wasn’t even that old, in fact it was only 4 years old. The vet himself was baffled to why the dog died. Rumors started to spread to why the dog died. Some even thought Mrs. Rudor placed a curse on the dog and it died because of it. Of course that sounded more crazy then she is. A month later everything went back to normal as it never happened. In fact Mrs. Rudor never had an incident since.

About 15 minutes before my parents were going to come home. The last of the kids had left and we just ran of candy.

Finally, man next year I got to have someone help me with this.

A minute after I closed the door, the doorbell rung. I had no idea who it was. Every kid in the neighborhood had come to the door. I still went to the door to tell them there isn’t anymore candy. When I opened the door, there was Mrs. Rudor looking at me with her weird glare. With her were 4 kids probably were here grandchildren which was weird because everyone assumed that she had no loved ones since no one visited her.

"Trick or Treat!" Screamed the kids

"Im sorry but we just ran out of candy" I explained to them.

They kept on yelling trick or treat, expecting me to give them candy but I kept on explaining to them that you have no more. Then Mrs. Rudor spoke.

"You dare to not have any candy to give to me grandchildren. My precious grandchildren. The most precious things in my life?!"

"Look Im sorry but I just handed the last of the candy out just a minute ago."

"It seems you lost the Halloween spirit that every child receives candy."

"I haven’t lost the Halloween spirit, I just ran out."

"Yes you have. If you still had it, you would have enough for every kid."

"Look Im sorry. We I had no idea you had grandchildren and that you were taking them trick or treating. If I knew, I would have saved you some and..."

"You need to be taught a lesson."

"Look, I don’t believe in those rumors you are a witch or something. Look maybe I can make it up and..."

That’s when Mrs. Rudor started chanting in a weird way like she did when the Johnson’s dog. But it sounded different. You started to back away and that’s when you started to get a little dizzy. You had a hard time standing up and you sat down on the couch.

"I hope this will teach you to have some Halloween spirit" said Mrs. Rudor as she was leaving.

The dizziness continued and the room started to looking like it was spinning faster and faster and then you blacked out.
