The goal of this Halloween prompt is to write a story about a husband who pranks his wife on Halloween, but the prank goes wrong..
The husband has paid some neighborhood kids to line up on the sidewalk around the house completely still and silent. As the wife answers the door for the trick-or-treaters, she becomes increasingly more concerned. Just when the wife is completely freaked out, there’s a loud bang from outside and one of the kids in the line is found on the ground. People begin running in all directions, but the other children in the line form a circle around the kid on the ground. A police officer comes running up and asks what happened. All of the kids point to the husband.
What happens next?
