Surprise Me This is a flash fiction contest. Write a story that has a surprise ending. Since it is flash, the word count must be between 200 and 600 words. The ending can be funny, sad, shocking, etc. But the reader has to be surprised.
Hi Dean, I think you have mentioned before that you actually know Mr King, well I'm sure if he gets the chance to read this he will love it.
I know you guys over the pond really love Halloween and this writing really ignites that passion, wonderfully written, visually remarkable, absolutely memorable.

I wouldn't say that I "know" him exactly, Mitchell. It's not like we're bosom buddies and go places together or anything like that.
But I do have lengthy conversations with him via my Facebook author's page.
Thanks very much for reading and commenting.
I thank you for posting your Halloween... with the King of terror and how you compared Halloween to other festive days during the year;
Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. time to dress and pretend who you aren't
Absolutely fabulous! 31 days and counting till the big day... it's a huge holiday at our house as my husband was born on that day. He was an only child to a single mom and I always tell him "your poor mom" she got tricked (no treat)! I love how you go through all the holidays on this fine piece of work, nicely done. You also put me in the mood for Halloween: 31 days away, yah!! Have a scary day!!!
Dean, this is a wonderful Halloween poem. It gets my vote for sure. Great personification and rhymes. I used to go all out for Halloween dressing up, decorating, etc. Good luck with your haunted house this year--a wonderful and generous thing to do. Good luck in the contest, my friend~Debbie
Wonderfully clever. You have outdone yourself with the holiday stereotypes and their new images. I loved Thanksgiving belching and snoring...Thanks for loosening up this group so they, too, can enjoy a holiday. Did Halloween take the night off?
