“What was that?” Whispered Alley.
“Did you hear those strange sounds?”
“Like the screeching of owls or the baying of hounds.”
But it was just the wind moaning in the dark of the night,
it was spooky and scary and it gave them a fright.
They shivered and shook at the creaking of doors,
rain tapping on windows like skeleton claws.
They huddled together safe under the covers
there was Alley aged nine and her two little brothers.
Then dark clouds rolled in and the moon disappeared
something spooky might happen, something terribly weird.
This rather spooky rhyming ‘tail’ is about a midnight adventure that Alley and her two little brothers embark upon in their own home, with unexpected results! Everything that happens is in their imagination so please don’t be concerned, there are no real ghosts, as of course there aren’t any…Or are there?
Anyhow, as in all good stories, everything turns out well in the end, although I somehow don’t think that they will be creeping around their house at midnight again in a hurry. I somehow think they’d rather be tucked up safely in their beds in future!
