Hallowe'en.
The dead walk.

No taxis.
Written for #SixWordStories' 52 Week Six Word Story Challenge - Week 42: write a six word story that relates to Hallowe'en.

For some reason I find this hilarious but I have a horrible feeling it's just me... Btw, I know the apostrophe has pretty much disappeared from "Halloween" but it took me ages as a child to learn where in the word to insert it and I'm not abandoning it now ^^

I still spell Hallowe'en like, er... well, like that. :D Whether it's wrong or right to continue to do so, it doesn't matter for the purposes of your story. You're really very good at depicting amusing situations in a thoughtful way.

Thank you ^^ :boogie:

I wonder if using the apostrophe in Hallowe'en is just a British thing..?

Ok, I know I've been commenting a lot, but I have to comment on this again.
Another laugh trip from me, it's so clever, and again, you make a very amazing tittle that fits it so well.

Ooh... o.O

The way you've just set the premise and the platform for our own imagination is brilliant here, I have to say. I really like the structure and the way you've made it so forbidding with the created atmosphere and mood of the words phrased and structured in such a way.

Awesome stuff. Fitting title, I have to say. :)

Thanks ^^ A friend pointed out that the title is a palindromic acronym ^^ (I think she's got too much time on her hands...)

This is hilarious. I can't imagine them trying to call a cab...

SCFrankles Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Yes... If they hailed the cab too vigorously things might start dropping off ^^

Glad you liked the story. I thought it might be one of those situations where I'm laughing happily to myself and everyone's looking at me oddly...
