Ha!-lloween (A Short Halloween Story)

Updated on October 18, 2015

Mom? Dad? Alexa? Is Anyone Home!?

14 year old Oliver Teran woke up on the morning of Halloween, its a Saturday and he's planning on going Trick or Treating with his good friends. While laying on his bed he hears a loud scream and the sound of broken glass. Shocked by the sound Oliver jumps up out of bed throwing his blanket to the side. He calls for his mother, father and his 12 year old sister Alexa but gets no response. He laughs and says " That had to be Alexa she loves playing these jokes on me especially on Halloween, she did this last year to me ah she's so annoying, I'll get her back." Oliver goes to the bathroom to wash his face and spots his father's shaving cream " I'll get her back alright, while whispering to himself in a low voice, OHHH ALEEXAAA, WHERE ARE YOU??."

Where is Everyone?

Oliver slowly creeps towards his sister's bedroom ready to wreak havoc with his father's shaving cream bottle. As he gets closer the door it begins to slowly open which makes Oliver think that his sister is already anticipating his revenge. He smirks and thinks to himself " I knew it, she's trying to spook me out because it's Halloween today but thats not going to happen I am way smarter than she is."

He runs into his sisters room anticipating her to be behind the door but as soon as he gets into the room the door shuts behind him which really makes him jump. He runs towards the door and tries to escape his sister's room but the door is locked on the outside and he's wondering how he's going to get out. On his sister's bed there is a note that says "Dear brother, I knew you would be in my room, if you are planning to prank me, THINK AGAIN! I have my creepy dolls lined up watching YOU! So be very afraid because I am the master trickster not you! P.S Mom and Dad like me a lot better than they like you." Oliver annoyed rips up the letter and upset begins to kick Alexa's creepy dolls out of the way when one of the creepy dolls begins to talk and say "OW that hurts" in a robotic voice. Oliver picks up the doll with the missing eye and throws it to the corner of Alexa's bedroom and says "Stupid Doll, why does mom and dad by her those creepy dolls with their dumb sayings"

Finally Alexa's door opens up itself which amazes Oliver because he's wondering how the door opened and closed on itself. He thought to himself that it must of been one of those fancy mechanisms that you put underneath your door, "That's right! Its one of those trick remote control door pranks that all of the kids talk about in school, Alexa must've bought this from that trick magic shop on Maple Avenue. " He smiles yet again and talks to himself " She thinks she's smarter than me? She thinks she's the trickster, she thinks she's the queen of Halloween, with her creepy doll and her automated door that opens and shuts but she's not like me, I'm Oliver the number one prankster in the whole world!."

The Broken Vase

As Oliver begins to walk down his spiral staircase he sees that the sound of the glass that woke him up in the morning actually came from the vase. He thinks to himself "Mom's vase I wonder what knocked it down? The window is not even open, it must've been an accident." As Oliver sat down on his couch to think of his master plan on how he is going to get his sister back he turned on his television and with excitement sees that his favorite television station is playing a marathon of "Zombie Walkers" and with excitement runs to the kitchen to grab a snack. As he heads to the kitchen he sees that his telephone cord is torn in half and wondered how that might've happened. "Mom or dad must've accidentally ripped the telephone cord, thats probably the reason why they went out to go get a new telephone cord."

Oliver goes back to watch his television show carrying his treats. He thinks to himself "Woah I've never seen this episode before" the episode is titled "EYEZ ON YOU." As he goes to put his hand inside the bag of chips he felt a slimy rubbery item, pulls it out and sees that it's a bouncy toy eye, this freaks him out. "OH MAN THAT'S IT IM DONE WITH THAT GIRL! SHES GOING TO GET IT WHEN SHE GETS BACK HOME."


The Greatest Halloween Prank Ever

Oliver is sitting on his couch thinking to himself that he may have to come up with the greatest Halloween prank ever, with a grin on his face he leaves his television show on and runs towards his room when all of the sudden at the top of the step he sees a dark ghostly figure with a pitch fork which makes him run back down the stairs. Oliver begins to run towards the main door of the house but finds that it is locked from the outside and the lock won't turn. With his house phone not working and his door locked from the outside Oliver shouts "HELP, SOMEBODY HELP!!!" MOM DAD ALEXA PLEASE SOMEBODY COME HOME AND HELP ME!!!!' In the background the television volume begins to grow louder and the groans of the Zombies on the television begin to get louder and louder. Oliver runs into the kitchen breathing heavily and nervous, he begins to scream "GET AWAY FROM ME, GET AWAY FROM ME" When all of the sudden he begins to hear the laughter of his sister Alexa and his parents. All together they shout "HAPPY HALLOWEEN, WE GOT YOU!" Oliver upset but relieved at the same time realizes that he was part of the greatest Halloween prank ever.

Oliver it Was Just A Joke!

Oliver angry at his parents and sister's Halloween prank went up to his room and locked his door. Still upset for the prank his sister and parents played on him he just laid on his bed in his room. "I can't believe that they did that to me, they REALLY got me! Me! Oliver! Halloween is not over, I will get them back, they think they could make a fool out of me? They picked the wrong person to trick! I will be the one who gets the last laugh."

Halloween Night

"Trick or Treat" is what Oliver and his sister Alexa hear from the neighborhood kids receiving delicious candy from the neighbors. Oliver decided to be a Super Hero which made his sister Alexa laugh because of the prank she pulled on him earlier. "The way you were screaming earlier in the day Oliver it looked like you needed a superhero!" Dad seeing that Oliver was not amused asked how he was feeling. "Oliver, you know it was just a Halloween trick right? It was harmless fun it didn't mean anything at all ,we love you Oliver and we just wanted you to have fun, we know that you are really brave and at the end of the day it was all for the spirit of Halloween Oliver smiled "You know what mom and dad I was a bit upset earlier but now I am feeling much better.

With Oliver and Alexa's bag full of Halloween candy and special treats they decided that it was time to head home, the day was a busy one and the family was tired from Trick or Treating and pranks. As Oliver's parent's walked into his room to wish him a good night he requested one favor to make up for the prank that was played on him and that was to get his sister Alexa back.


What Comes Around, Goes Around

Ohhhh Alexa! Oliver said as he was walked by her room. Oliver says to Alexa that he is no longer mad at her for the prank that she played on him and that he actually thought it was pretty cool and unique. He asked her some questions about the prank like "How did you get the door to open and shut while I was there?" and then she showed him the device the allowed her to open and shut her door. She said "See Oliver it works like this you put the piece underneath the door and then press on and it, it works kinda like those supermarket doors that open when you come near them." Ohh" Oliver said thats really cool." How about that creepy talking doll you got that was saying something like " I'm going to get Alexa in her dreams, I will haunt her forever" Alexa looked at Oliver strangely and said "What are you talking about? The doll doesn't say that it says something else. "No Alexa it said it was going to haunt you in your dreams, watch I will show you." Oliver took the doll out and squeezed its stomach, the doll turned its head and said "ALEXA I WILL HAUNT YOU IN YOUR DREAM" The scream from Alexa caused her parents to run into Alexa's room with laughter. "HAHA WE GOT YOU ALEXA! HAPPY HALLOWEEN" Alexa got a dose of her own medicine and now Oliver and Alexa were both even.
