One day after school, Cassandra noticed Emily looking very sad. She found out that Emily wasn’t going to get to go trick-or-treating because everyone in her family was busy that day. That gave Cassandra an idea, and with the help of her friends, Fiona and Raynia, she managed to make Emily’s Halloween perfect! After getting permission from Emily’s mom, the girls were going to take her trick-or-treating.
The girls met at our house. Fiona was dressed as a black cat, Raynia as a bumble bee, Cassandra as a Minion (what else?!) and Emily as a ghost. They headed out to several different houses to see what kind of goodies they would get.
“How’s business?” asked Fiona. “Or maybe I should rephrase that. How’s BOOSNESS?!”
The girls giggled. “Oh, it’s going better than we thought.” replied Rebecca. “We figured with it being so cold out, no one would want to buy ice cream, but we’ve had quite a few customers. It’s been fun seeing all the different kids dressed up too, I got some really cool photos!”
“That’s fantastic!” said Raynia. “I hope you guys continue to do well, it looks like it might rain.”
“I’d love some ice cream”, said Emily. “But I’m afraid I’d get it on my ghost costume, so I think I’ll pass. Maybe later.”
Then they decided they would each take a turn picking a piece of candy out of the pile to keep. That way no one would get stuck with a candy they didn’t like, and hopefully they would each end up with their favorites.
“That’s all that we are taking Emily, the rest is yours!!!”
Emily was so excited. “You guys are the best! Thank you so much!”
(In case you are wondering what happened to some of the photos, we got caught in a little bit of rain towards the end of the photo shoot. I didn’t realize until it was too late that a drop of water had apparently left a mark on my camera lens, and now several of them had this interesting “mark” on them. Oh well. We can pretend it’s a “ghostly apparition” or something!)
