Walter loved Halloween more than any other day. He loved the kids running up and down the street, the spooky music humming from hidden speakers, the fake spiderwebs crawling across his neighbor’s porches, the carved pumpkins that grinned at him as he passed by on the street.

He especially loved that he could throw out his garbage just as sun was setting, waving to his neighbors as they passed out candy to little goblins and ghouls, and no one would think otherwise about the blood dripping from the bag.
