A Good Night Out

A Good Night Out
By Scott Wilson
Word Count: 139
On a moonlit night, Arnold and Betty were walking home when Betty said, “Let's take a shortcut through the graveyard!”

The two friends jumped the fence and started making their way through the spooky tombstones when Arnold noticed that Betty was no longer there.

“Betty where are you?” Arnold whispered.

Suddenly everything seemed scarier, every noise every shadow... Arnold's pulse was racing... then a shadowy specter came quickly out of the shadow screaming “What the...!” Arnold yelled and cringed in fear.

When the moon lit up the creature, Arnold saw it was not a ghost but Betty laughing hard.

Arnold joined in the laughter and the two friends ran off home while eyes watched from the shadows.
