THE BANSHEE DEMON
by Peter Halder
Simone and Tiara were cousins and next door neighbors. It was October 31 and the two young girls were at a loss at to what to do that Halloween evening. Their parents could not afford costumes so they were not keen on going trick or treating.
“Well, life is full of let downs but we can still find something to do. So you have any ideas?” asked Simone.
“Aha. I’m glad you asked. I did have an idea. What if we walk around the neighborhood and admire some of the costumes worn by kids for the night. Who knows, maybe something weird may happen which will make our Halloween stroll a night to remember.”
“Good idea Tiara. I sure our parents will have no objections if we walked around together holding hands. Maybe we can even take that small wooden Holy Cross you have on your bedroom wall with us just in case we run into a demon.”
