A Halloween Story: The Girl on the Couch
There once was a girl, pretty and fair, who never shied away from a good scare.
Alone on the couch she watched with fright a horror movie on Halloween night.
Lightning flashed as a storm grew near, but safe in her home, she had nothing to fear.
The movie played on, but just out of sight, a shadow appeared amongst the light.
On the screen was the victim, cute and demure. The girl on the couch looked eerily similar to her.
Now the killer appears, wielding a knife. An appropriate film for Halloween night.
Footsteps are heard as tensions rise. The girl on the couch tries not to cover her eyes.
But the footsteps she hears come not from the screen. Mesmerized by the film she does not turn to see.
The killer is close. He raises his knife. He strikes it down. He ends her life.
The movie ends and I’m happy to say that the girl in the film… she got away.
