FROM THE VAULT OF CRANKY part II
Halloween is around the corner. There is nothing like a good scary Halloween story so I went into the vault of stuff my mom saved for some unknown reason, and I found two Halloween stories from my cranky youth.
Without further ado, I submit unedited, the second story, dated Oct. 30, 1957:
MY WEIRD BROTHER
Most of the time on Halloween night I have fun but this year I had to take my brother Melvin out. I always thought he was weird but tonight he proved it. When we knocked at the first door My brother turned to me drulling and his fangs grew. I told him to stop playing but he only tried to bite me. This could cause preblums, after all what would you do if your brother was a were-wolf. I ran home and told mom but didn’t believe me, she just kept saying stop joking and have a piece of candy. Their wasn’t any thing to do so I took the candy and ran. As I left the house I saw my brother he was normal again. I took him to the police and told them of my proplum and suggested they take him to the zoo or something but they only said gowan home kid. As I left the police station I turned and my brother almost bit my nose off Hear we go again. After an hour of chaceing around I went into my house again. I pleaded whith my mother to take Melven to the zoo or something like that. But she only gave me anouther piece of candy. Now this was getting serous , after all Melven was chaseing around and mom was handing candy around. But it was good so I took it and ran again. After a while it was twelve oclock and my brother was normal again. After that I got out of bed and got some candy but it was not nearly as good as in the dream.
I found myself in bed it was all a dream.
(Most of young Cranky’s stories seem to end up as a dream.)

it's always fun to look back and see how your writing has improved over the years. i think it's cool that you post your archived writings from your childhood.
You were meant to write! Aren't you glad you're doing that now?
Oh, that was fun to read!!ReplyDelete
So cute! Well, yes, that is always a good ending for a story :-) Especially when you are a young writer. :-)ReplyDelete
