Halloween Cousins

Friday Fictioneer!

Every week, we get a chance to write a 100-word story about the photo prompt shared by Rochelle. This week, the photo is provided by Liz Young. Check more takes on the prompt why clicking here.


People say we overdo Halloween decorations. Well, I don’t agree. It’s the most important day for our family. We make innovative costumes, paint our faces, decorate the trees in the frontyard and whatnot. But the cage is our main attraction. Some ask, “who is that inside”. For which we tell them its a cousin from far off. Some say, “why isn’t he moving?” We say, “He’s a good actor, silly!”

After midnight, we go for the hunt as a family. The aim is to find some lonely soul who won’t be missed.  We call it, Capturing Cousins, for next Halloween.

  3. Dear Shivam,

    I certainly wouldn’t want to be a “cousin” in this family. Eek!

    1. Hehe, thanks. I don’t know much about Halloween, only what I’ve seen in movies. That’s why I always think that there might be people like these who take the spirit of Halloween much too seriously😅


  4. That’s taking a family activity or traditions to a whole ‘nother level!


  5. Gives a whole new meaning to welcoming a new member of the family. This lot is clearly more trick than treat.
