My second submission to the amazing Susanna Hill’s Halloweensie competition.
If you didn’t get to the first post, the rules are: Create a Halloween story for kids twelve and under that is less than 100 words AND must include the words: howl, cauldron, and shiver (any form of the word will do).

One Halloween night, Lonely Umbrella blew through the streets.
I hope someone picks me up, Umbrella thinks.
The twirling princess?
Nope. Spun away.
The fairy dog?
No…ran away howling.
The superhero reaching down?
Guess not…just tying his shoe.
If only it were raining, someone would need me.
“Oh dear,” Little Witch mumbled, scooping up Umbrella. “Where do you belong?”
With you…I hope… Umbrella shivered with excitement.
“My naughty cauldron is always spewing potions. Come, darling, I could use your cover.”
And from that night on, Umbrella was never lonely again.
