The Rogue Speaks:
It's Saturday again, and time for Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus! The prompt this week is "'Trick or treat' they shouted as the door opened..." so here is my take:
COME IN, MY PRETTIES!
She had installed new gingerbread columns, with fresh peppermint candies supporting them. The front steps smelled of hot, yummy brownies. Gumdrop trees stood on either side of the porch.
This was the night she had been waiting for all year. Ever since those two brats tricked her and escaped, she had been planning to trap her next prey. No child could turn away from the sights and aromas of her home in the woods.
She put on her best black dress and combed her stringy hair. She could hear the children making their way down the road toward her trap!
"Trick or treat!" they shouted as the door opened.
