Sarah was different today. I don't remember ever seen my little sister like this. She was quiet and didn't say a word. “Do you think it's a good idea?” I was talking to Tommy and my eyes were pointing into Sarah's direction. He briefly looked at her. “Why shouldn't it?” “And what if nobody lives there?” “I saw some light in one of the windows a few days ago.”
Sarah was staring at Tommy. Her eyes were filled with fear. “Maybe it wasn't the best idea to bring your little sister tonight.” The other kids showed up and over the next minutes the small shed was packed. Anna even brought her little dog.
“396 is scary but 403 is probably the most scariest place ever. People say...” “What if I just stay here with Rover and wait for you? I believe he is scared.” “If you stay in this old shed at Halloween you and the dog will turn into pumpkins Sarah, trust me. Why do you think all these pumpkins show up on Halloween? Scared little girls and dogs.” I was feeling bad for Sarah who obviously was trying to hold back her tears now. What happened to that cheeky little girl I know. “Come on Sarah, it's Halloween. You will love it, I promise. You have such a beautiful costume.” It was dark but I could see a tear rolling down her pretty clownface.
When we passed the gate of the cemetery everybody was quiet. We probably looked like an obscure parade of circus characters. “The houses are on the other side of that place, this is the shortest way,” Dorothy whispered. I was holding tight to Sarah's hand. When I looked at her I saw she had her eyes closed. “Here lies Mr Doherty and his daughter”, somebody whispered. “Remember when she disappeared in a peculiar way last Halloween and when they found her, her dad ...” “Shut up, Rosie.” Finally we reached the other side of the cemetery and the dark shadows of some huge houses in front of us.
