Kayla’s Bedtime Story

The Unforgettable Halloween Party

                Once upon a time, in 1948 lived a sweet old midget lady named Rose. Rose lived in the same haunted castle for more than 50 years and she never left her home. Her only known companion was a black cat named Blackie.

Every year during Halloween season, Rose’s castle was the talk of the town and every year on Halloween day, there always was a terrible storm and occurred over her castle. Her front yard would be covered as a graveyard with tombstones of famous celebrities like Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Michael Jackson, 2Pac, Prince, and Osama Bin Laden. In addition to the celebrities, there were also tombstones of the famous Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolf Man, Mummy, and Jason from Friday the 13th. No one ever saw Miss Rose decorate her home, but it has been said that these tombstones rose from the ground the night before Halloween. If you thought that the tombstones were crazy you have no idea! Nobody ever visited Miss Rose but on Halloween there was always a hearse in front of her house with a casket in it. It had been rumored that there laid her husband’s body in that casket but no one could ever confirm if it was true or not.

Every 31st of October marked the annual Halloween celebration at Rose’s castle. Thousands of students in and out the city would attend the party to see for themselves all the horror stories that have been told about Rose and her haunted castle. Rose was an excellent host and she was always super excited about having guests in her home. She was no party pooper either, every year she would plan a bigger and better party.

This particular year in 1975, Rose decided she would have her last party and she was going go party like its 1999. Her house was full of candy for her guest; the candy included Kit Kat, Hershey, Twix, Snickers, and Rolos. She also had pizzas with all colors of M&M’s. She also was really creative with her beverages tags. The V8 drinks had been named “A Positive” and the Coca Cola “Oil”. No one seemed to drink the beverages except for Rose. In her kitchen, she had rotten carved pumpkins that she had saved throughout the years. All the pumpkins were green and slimy like the milk in the refrigerator. She had a green, moldy spicy chicken sandwich on her counter. Her blender had old and festering ketchup that had dried up and the smell in her home was horrific. Who knows how long it had been that way.

The entertainment that Rose booked was the band Aerosmith to perform, she convinced them to wear costumes of Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, and Wolf Man. They played “Cryin” and the lead singer who was the Wolf Man howled his voice off. Miss Rose went crazy and almost had a heart attack.

Rose had planned her last party to be unforgettable; she had invited her boyfriend that was a teacher. His name was Mr. Miyagi. The day after the press released an exclusive article about the disappearance of all the students that attended Roses last Halloween bash. As of today, the disappearance of all those students is still an unsolved mystery. No one has yet dared to visit Rose’s Haunted House and rumor says that Rose’s house still comes alive on Halloween day.
