Ben is a cute, little kid who loves Halloween a lot and woke up with an uncontrollable excitement on 31st October. He opened his room door and was shocked to find a lady dressed in a black cloak, gazing through the window. He took a step back and stammered, “Who…Who are you?” She turned back and gave him a broad smile.
Ben now came closer to her and uttered, “I know who you are. You must be one of the participants of my Halloween contest. It’s very early for you to be here. But still, you can help me in dressing up as a scary ghost”.The lady in black tried to cut him there and said, “Hey! I’m Tessa. And you’ve got to listen to me”.
Ben was overjoyed that the guests have started arriving very early and was in no mtood to listen. He screamed in joy, “Okay Tessa. Come with me and meet my mom”. He ran down the stairs to the living room.
Something strange was lying down there, wrapped up in a white bed spread and his parents were sitting next to it. Tears were flowing down from their eyes incessantly. Ben shouted, “Mom! What happened? Why are you crying?” But she didn’t respond to him.
Ben was puzzled and questioned Tessa, “ What is happening here?” She bent down, caught hold of his hand and whispered, “Sweetie, You don’t have to dress up as a ghost anymore. Because you are a ghost now. And I’m Tessa, the reaper”.
