  7. 7. SOAR CITIZEN No. 18/19—- SUMMER - FALL 2007 Special Section M OR E TALES O THE GHOSTS TERROR F By Dzidra ! Once there was a strange couple who lived in an old house. The house was said to be haunted! Four people went in the house and were never seen again. People say the ghosts took them. They saw dripping slime and heads floating around and skeletons. Anyway, new people have inherited the house. They were relatives of the ghosts. One night on Halloween they got all the candy and other stuff out. They told the trick-or-treaters the grapes were eyeballs. They had candy vampire teeth and juice disguised as blood. They left the stuff out for the kids. If they took too much of the candy the kids would disappear. No one knows what happens to them. The owners of the house were inside having a party with their ghostly relatives. Every year after Halloween the house would be deserted. It was as if no one lived in the house. No one dared to buy the house if they put it on the market. BOO!
