digging around in the bushes looking for that lost solid.
I know it must be here somewhere. Maybe that guy that just went by on his big black horse can help me . He was also looking for something. Heard him mutter something about a head.

The Scarecrow watched nervously through beady button eyes. 'Move on. Move on' he muttered under his breath. 'This cursed night is young and there are many weary travellers yet to pass!'

Well that gave me time to smack the horse on its rear and off it went taking the wailing "headless" horseman with him.
As a smile crept over my face I heard the scarecrow say in a eriee tone. "Now I have you all to myself"

I tripped and felt long spindly like fingers grabbing my legs, their nails digging deeply into my flesh.
A deep gutteral laugh penetrated the night air sending chills up and down my spine. I was suffocating! Suffocating with fear of the unknown! A damp blanket of sweat covered my body. ''I have been waiting for you' the old Sister mumbled. 'And now you have come!' Her face stared into mine. A craggy face, full of lines criss-crossing leathery skin.

Oh I saw the message in the smoke. My eyes widened. the message told me of one who would be in great peril this night. After all this is the night all evil spirits come out to play. It was not your imagaination that the scarecrow was chasing you. On this one night he tries to find a soul to take his place on that stake so his troubled soul can find rest.

Follow me, the Old Sister beckoned, her finger pointing to an old grave that had lain for many long years. I looked behind me, fearful of what I would see and yes, I could hear a breathless sigh. Someone was not too far behind! The Scarecrow with the beady button eyes?
'Come' she motioned impatiently, 'help me lift the tombstone before it is too late!' I shuddered at the thought of what would lay below! 'Don't be foolish girl. Climb down or you will never know what it is like to breathe this air again!'
It would be a long night. The longest I have ever known or ever will! The crawling insects, the smell of decay and old bones, the fearful prods over our heads as haunted creatures roamed the night!
And I would be thankful to be out of this tomb in the morning light, when the dew would settle and the sun begin to open up the skies.....

You may ask what the Scarecrow's last words were before he went up in flames? "I thought I saw a puddy cat."
