2019 Prompt: Write a 100-word Halloween story appropriate for children 12 and under using the words cobweb, potion, and trick.
Sukie’s Motion Potion
Only ghouls with goals got to trick the treaters on Halloween.
The Monster Match was Sukie’s last chance to score.
Sukie had a plan!
The pot gurgled. The ingredients stewed. Sukie poured her potion into a bottle labeled: Kick Trick!
She strapped on shin guards and tied her cleats.
Then Sukie read a spell as she reached for the bottle and gulped every drop.
At the game with seconds to spare, Sukie got her shot … into the cobweb goal. SCORE!
When Sukie got home to prepare Halloween pranks, she saw a full bottle on the table labeled: Kick Trick.
