When she opened the door, she immediately knew there was someone in her house. She asked “Is anyone there?”, but no one answered, so she went to the kitchen and started making supper. While she was chopping tomatoes, she heard knocking upstairs. The knife fell out from her hand. She picked it up with shaking hands and went up the stairs.

The noise was coming from the bathroom at the end of the hall. She turned on the lights and went straight on, holding a drawn knife. The door was ajar. She was terribly frightened; her heart was beatingwildly. She opened the door and turned on the lamp very quickly. Much to her surpristhere wasn’t anybody in the bathroom and the noise stopped. She hurried back to the stairs. When she stood on the top step, someone said “Hello”. She screamed very loudly and fell down the stairs. Sitting on the floor groaning with pain she realized, her arm had broken. She looked up and saw a man with a pumpkin head. With bloodstained knife, the man was going towards her.

“What do you want? Do you want to kill me?” she asked.

“It’s your Halloween gift.” he answered with a horrible laugh.

She tried to get to the front door. She stood up crying and held the handle, but unfortunately it was too late. The man caught her and said “Trick or treat!”, stabbing her stomach. She fell down, spitting with blood. While the man was going out he said for goodbye “Happy Halloween!”
