A KNOCK in the NIGHT!

Category: Halloween stories | Posted: Sat Oct 01, 2011 2:27 pm

A Knock in the night.....

I was in bed, we had retired earlier tonight than usual and all of a sudden something woke me. I layed there wondering if I was woke up by a dream or if I really heard it. KNOCK, KNOCK came again. This time I knew I wasn't dreaming. It wasn't too late but who could it be? I slid out of bed so quietly so I didn't wake anyone else....I thought why am I sneaking around in my own home??? But I wanted to be quiet to make sure the person at the door didn't hear me inside ! Walking in the dark, trying not to stumble over the dogs toys or bones....

As I was walking to the door to peer out the peep hole, I heard the KNOCK, KNOCK again...even louder and harder than before...and again KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK.....it had me worried ....what if I put my face up to peer out the peep hole and they knock again? Should I or shouldn't I look? HELP me decide what to do ! The longer I took the more worried I got....I thought to myself...I should wake up my husband to see who it was but then he would of opened the door to check around...I didn't want him going outside and look around on this night of all nights....



KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK came again....I sat in a chair by the door....too scared to open it or peer out the little peep hole...who could it be? Why didn't they call my name as they knocked if they knew me? I grabbed for something to have in my hands to make me feel safer....KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK came again....

I decided to be brave and open the door and confront the intruder.....as I opened the door slowly I heard "TRICK OR TREAT" so I opened the bag of candy I had in my hands and reached down and gave them a couple pieces of candy. I had left the porch light on inviting all of these goulish little people to my door......Sherry8

We don't get many, if any, trick or treaters in the Irish countryside. A shame.
