Halloweensie 2018: The Evil Dr. Gerbil, and the Case of the Stolen Cauldron

Happy Halloweensie everybody. So glad you stopped by. I’m so excited to be entering another one of Susanna Leonard Hill’s Halloweensie writing contests. If you don’t know what that is head on over here to check it out. If you’re not a writer, but love reading great stories, then head on over here to enjoy all the amazingly talented entries. This year I actually wrote two stories: The Evil Dr. Gerbil and the Case of the Stolen Cauldron (98 Words), and Tricks on You (95 Words).

Of course, it wouldn’t be a holiday writing contest without my beloved Evil Dr. Gerbil. When we last left off, The Evil Dr. Gerbil had won the Villains Got Talent Valentines contest, but was swiftly arrested by law enforcement’s top crime fighter, Wonder Weasel, and was sentenced to time on the spinning wheel.

Enjoy the stories, and thanks for reading!

 

Fox Breaking News

 

An enchanted cauldron belonging to the weird Poo sisters: Itchy, Witchy, and Snitchy, was reported stolen. Evidence of partridge feathers and candy corn were found at the scene.

News at 11…

Fox Breaking News

The notorious Evil Dr. Gerbil has escaped from prison again! Shivering witnesses described an explosion, followed by a burning, boiling, bubbling fire. A newt’s eye, frog’s toe, dog’s tongue, and howl-et’s wing were found at the scene, leading authorities to believe the old double, double toil and trouble spell abetted the escape.

Wonder weasel is flying in to investigate.

Stay tuned…

Tricks on You

“What do you want?”
My heart skipped a beat.
“Why are you here?”
I croaked, “Trick or Treat?”

Her cauldron was boiling,
a black, inky brew,
she cackled,
and tossed me right into that stew.

Ahh came my screams!
Swish went her broom,
under the glow
of a rising full moon.

The hairs on my back
pricked to attention.
Was that a shiver
of witch apprehension?

Shape-shifting swiftly.
Teeth razor points.
Ten sharpened claws,
sprang from my joints.

Growl went my stomach.
I howled with delight!
My trick,
now my treat,
to feast on tonight.
