Halloween at School
A cacophonous symphony of shrieking students, blood-curdling laughter, and the shrill ringing of the bell greeted me as I entered the school. How could I forget, it was Halloween! The entrance hall was decked with gauzy ghosts and vampiric looking witches floating in mid air directed by electronic controls. Tangled jumbo spiderwebs supported a vibrantly purple banner with a screaming gold-colored Happy Halloween sign. Whenever you touched a doorknob, a deafening screech would resonate inside and outside the school.
I looked hurriedly at my watch. “Just in time,” I thought, and made my way to the back stairs, a convenient alternative to the crowded hallways.
I got to my math classroom, a large, airy room, offering a view of the old, gnarled tree ornamented with several bird feeders, when the teacher rang the euphonious chime.
