The eerie glow could be seen from the path, but none dared in the dark of night to investigate. The wood had long been said to hold terrifying secrets.
It was by the light of day that William and Connor decided to leave the trail to see what the source of the night before’s glow had been.
“It’s just pumpkins,” Connor said with a tone of disappointment.
“Well someone or something had to have brought them here,” William said giving the “something” a sinister tone. “We all know that nobody would dare come into these woods to light them even if they put them here in the daytime.”
Connor’s eyes showed he had been spooked. His older brother took delight in the success of his prank.
