Halloween Watches! Yes it is Time!

A Corum Halloween Story. Warning: Not for the faint hearted.

The wind howling through the trees sends sharp prickles of terror up your spine. You are alone in the huge house set far from the street. Your face shines with a curious blue light cast from your glowing computer screen. Something falls! A shrill howl of pain, and a dull thud against the sliding patio door. Did you lock it? You don't know and too terrified to check.

It is Halloween night and you are all alone.
It is time to purchase a really scary watch from the Watchery.
A bump on the second floor landing; the drip of a leaky faucet; the scuttle of tiny feet; you turn on the music loud. Gazing out the window, you gasp and leap from your chair! You shriek out in horror! There is a face at the window. A white ghostly face with empty eye sockets, empty except for a pulsating red key. The skin on your face tightens and your heart pounds at your ribcage. The screech from the electric guitar adds to your terror. White blinding terror.
Yes !It is time to buy a really scary watch from The Watchery.

You spin around searching for an escape. Lurching towards the door, you bang your shin on the coffee table. You don't feel the pain. As you reach the door, it opens by itself. On the level of your nose is a gruesome bat. Its fangs dripping with blood. The leathery wings flap in jerky motions sending puffs of foul air into the house. The bat blocks the doorway, and you cannot get to your car. The car that will take you to the center of town; to the party everyone is attending. Everyone, except you.
Having no choice, you turn and brace for the worst. It is Halloween night after all, and anything can happen. Lightening flashes and you are plunged into darkness and silence. Your eyes are drawn to the only light in your old old drafty house; drawn to the computer screen.

Staggering back to your computer chair, you hear something laugh. The laugh is not quite human, it has a strange guttural sound that weaves into the very fabric of your being. Another wave of panic sets in. The laughter again, and then a bright ball of fire careens through the sliding door window sending shards of glass tinkling to the ground.

"This must be a dream," you say, as the ball of fire stops just before you.

A skull wearing a hat, emerges from the fire.

"It is time to buy a really scary watch from The Watchery," the blazing skull says and the fire ball vanishes in a plume of smoke.
