 HERE IS MY ENTRY, I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT!

 Misguided Trust
by Carolyn Brown
(293 words)

Driving along the dark roads towards the old Farrow’s farm, Cassie asked, “Julie, tell me why are we meeting the boys here?”

“Don’t be a baby Cassie. Josh and Paul are meeting us for Halloween, get into the spirit.” she answered with a twisted smile.

They continued their drive in silence.

“This is it Cassie, pull up near the jack-o-lantern.” Julie pointed to the right side of the drive.  “Josh’s car is parked behind the shed, do you see it?”

Leaving the car, both girls moved towards the shed. The house and surrounding yard was in complete darkness, but Cassie, prepared for every eventuality found a flashlight in her handbag.

Opening the door, Julie felt a sticky cobweb attached itself to her and screamed!  She removed the silky strands from her hair, as the torch light allowed them to see inside the room, enabling them to discover a cauldron mounted on bricks, a pile of timber waiting to be lit, stacked beneath it.

Cassie was first to notice the coldness of the room and mentioned it to Julie, who nodded and pulled her hoodie tighter to her body. Cassie screamed, dropped the torch and plunged the shed into darkness. Had she seen a ghost sweep past them?  Bending to search for the flash light, Cassie felt the sharp edge of a blade slice across her throat.

Looking up, Julie was standing over her, an old fashioned razor in her hand. She realized the blade had cut her throat when she felt warm sticky blood congeal on her skin. Terrorized, she tried to scream for help!

 “If you think Josh and Paul will help you, you’re sadly mistaken; you will find them floating inside the cauldron. Don’t worry, you will be joining them soon.”
