I’m participating in Susanna Leonard Hill’s Halloweensie Story Contest. The task – tell a complete story in 100 words or less that uses the words skeleton, creep, and mask in any form. Here goes!
The Shelter Shuffle (96 words)
Trouble was brewing, and soon Furry Paws would have to close. But Fifi and Rex had a plan. With any luck they could raise enough money to keep the shelter open. On Halloween night, clanking skeletons and creepy clowns, masked monsters and ghastly ghosts convened for the first ever Furry Paws Howl-loween Dance Party.

Doin’ the Shelter Shuffle!
When the final dancers departed, Fifi and Rex counted the donations. Yelps and yowls and meows erupted in celebration. It was a Happy Howl-loween for Furry Paws!
