The Witch and The Tree

by Peter Halder

      Warraboola the Witch lived in an underground cave in the large area of thick woods some distance from the oak trees lined main avenue of the city.

Long tresses of grey and black hair reached down from the top of Warraboola’s head to her waist. On her head was a black, broad-rimmed cone shaped hat. Her long narrow face was adorned with thick grey bushy eyebrows, black steely eyes, a long, thin crooked nose, a wide mouth with thin lips and a long narrow chin. Her two ears were long and narrow like two antennas. She had long hands, with long fingers and long claw-like nails, Over her narrow bony body she wore a long-sleeve black dress that reached to her ankles. She had on long black boots. She sat in an old fashioned rocking chair smoking a corncob pipe. The puffs of smoke that rose from it gave the cave an evil and dreadful odor.   Continue reading

He had not walked far when he encountered an anteater. He was amused at the ugly shape of the animal, especially its long funny proboscis and its clumsy toes.

He laughed aloud and shouted, “Ha! Ha1 Ha! what a funny looking creature you are. You are ugly like sin.”
The anteater replied, “I am not amused. You also look funny to me. Those stripes on your skin look like a woman’s dress. And your fangs are so crazy looking you ought to go and see a dentist.”   Continue reading

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.” Continue reading
