A Halloween Night

By Elizabeth B21

Mystery / Fantasy

Halloween Night

31 October 2004

Halloween

He hated this day; it is just a day that more of those damn demons came after him. Every year, he had this shit; even in the army the demons didn’t leave him alone. To make things worse, people are wear costumes of all kinds of creatures or demons and this made it easier for the damn demons to come out and blend in.

He walked along the pavement, kids bumping into him, trying to get to the next house before the candy is gone. Teens are on their way to the party of the year as they past him. He sighed and kept his focus on any demons trying to get their next victim.

He walked maybe four more blocks until he saw something going into an ally as kids are about to pass. He got his weapons ready; it is Halloween so no one would think that he cared a real weapon, that it the easy part. The hard part is to lead the demon away from it pray the kids. So he quickly walked to the ally but before he could take any more steps. He heard gunshots going off and people starting to run.

He turned around, at the direction where the shots came from. That’s when he saw her, shooting at one of those demons. He didn’t think he would ever see her again but if he wanted to talk to her again, he needed to first help her with the demon.

He took out his Chirugai and made it fly in the air, then he sends it to the demon’s throat and in one second, the demon growled and throws a fire ball at him. He quickly dodges it and is now standing at the back of her. He hearing her voice, so soft but he could hear she is surprised to see him there.

“Kurtis.”

They both dodge another fire ball from the demon and Kurtis readied his Chirugai again.

“Hey Lara” he greeted and throw his disc to the demon’s throat again, this time the head came clean of and rolled to Lara’s feet. She kicked it away and walked up to him

“What are you doing here?” She asked.

“Oh, I’m enjoying the spirit this year.” He said with a smirk.

“I thought you hated Halloween.” Lara said and holstered her guns.

He sighed”I do” and now he first saw what she was wearing “What are you suppose to be?” He asked.

Lara smiled “I’m supposed to be Red riding hood but on my why that Demon attacked me.” Lara said pointing to the headless demon on the ground.

“But why are you dressed like that, I didn’t think you were one for a costume, Lara?” Kurtis asked and folded his arms.

“An old friend has invited me to her Halloween party and this time she begged me to come.” Lara said and looked him in his blue eyes.

“Ah, so that’s what brings you to America, nice.” Kurtis said with that smirk she loved so much.

“So why are you here?” She asked and they started walking.

“Business, These Demons loves coming out on Halloween and they love this place very much.” Kurtis said and looked around him. They came to a corner, seeing kids walking in a group up to a house.

“So the Demon Hunter is at it again.” Lara joked and bumped him a little. Kurtis laughed and stopped in his tracks, he grabbed Lara’s wrist. Making her turn to face him

“Lara, last time I saw you…” he didn’t go on.

“I kissed you and then left you in the hospital, I remember” Lara finished for him and looked him into his blue eyes, her brown ones melting in them

“Lara, I couldn’t stop thinking of you. Not just because of the kiss but everything we’ve been through.” He said and touched her cheek,

“Lara, we are here again after a year had gone past, I ask you to give me a chance.” He asked. Lara didn’t say a word and only kissed him on the lips.

After she kissed him, she whispered “It’s Halloween, anything can happen” and they snack into an ally and fell into each other’s arms.

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace.

Sara Grover: When I first started reading, it was a bit slow; though only because it was so information intense and fast-paced in trying to describe how this complex galactic corporation/government like entity controls known space. I would suggest maybe adding a preface to better educate the reader to help av...
