“Trick or Treat” (a drabble).

“Trick or Treat” (a drabble).
James WF Roberts

Fuzzy. Everything’s fuzzy, out of focus. Head throbbing. What’s that rancid smell? Where am I? What happened? Come on think…think. What’s the last thing you remember?

A muffled scream echoes down a hall way.
Fuck! What was that?  Fuck!
Gunshot rings out. Creaking floorboards. A door slams.
Don’t make a sound. Don’t make a sound!

Heavy foot falls, pound wooden floorboards.
SHIT! Shit! What’s happening…where am I? last thing I remember. Opening the door some kids screaming out “trick or treat”. The world went dark.
Keys are fumbling. Latch open. Dull eyes are staring.
“trick or treat…girlie”. He reaches in.
