was a cold and windy Halloween night at the Wee Kiwi Manor and a creepy October
fog had settled over the old house. Stasha and Aubrey
had just returned from a long night of trick-or- treating. They had eaten a few
of their yummy treats and after brushing
their teeth extra good had gotten ready for bed. They both nestled snugly under
while Mummy read them a story and soon they began to drift off to sleep. When
they were well on their way to dreamland, Mummy closed the book, turned out the
lights and tucked them in for the night. It was only a moment after mummy had
left the room that they heard a strange and curious sound...... |
SNACKITY, SNICK"went the
noise. Neither of them made a peep,
wondering if the other had made the funny sound. Then they heard it
that they both jumped out of bed and hugged each other tightly. "Wa... wa...
what was that?" asked Stasha, as she held her trembling sister. "How should I
know, " replied Aubrey. Perhaps it was a spooky ghost or a wicked witch flying around in the
night sky. The both looked out the window with wide curious eyes but they did
not see a thing. Maybe it was a scary mummy or a big black bat creeping around
in their closet. They both looked around the room with wide curious eyes but they
did not see a thing. Stasha and Aubrey began to squeeze each other tighter
when they heard the noise again...
"SHNOCK, SHNOCKITY, SHNOCK"
They were just
about to run for the bedroom door when they heard another, even stranger noise.
This time it was coming from behind their bedroom door.
was as loud as could be and Stasha and Aubrey both jumped under the covers of
Aubrey's bed, pulling the blankets high up over their heads. "Do.. do... do you
think that a monster followed us home after trick-or-treating", Stasha stuttered.
"Oh my, I hope not," replied Aubrey, as she trembled beside her
sister. Just then their bedroom door began to creek open. With every inch the
girls shivered more. Would it be a big yellow monster, or a spooky mean ghost?
Or maybe a slimy green space alien
with fingers three feet long and five antennas poking out of its head! Stasha
and Aubrey squeezed their eyes shut, not wanting to see the scary monster behind
the door. Then they heard the noise again right inside their room!!!!
"SNICK, SNORK, SHNOCKITY, GRUMBLE"
rumbled the horrible
sound as it crept closer and closer to their bed. Stasha and Aubrey were just
about to scream for their Mummy when they heard a more familiar rumbling....
They opened their eyes and looked
at each other under the covers. "Hey, I know that sound," said Stasha. "Hey,
so do I," replied Aubrey. The girls slowly pulled the covers down and finally
saw where the noise was coming from. There stood
Jack, The Lumberjack Dog, with a bag full of treats in his mouth snicking and
snorking away as loud as could be trying to get someone's
attention. Stasha and Aubrey jumped out of bed, laughing and giggling and gave
Jack a big hug. They were both so relieved to find that what they thought was
a big scary
monster was just their little lovable puppy.
