31 Days of Haunts is back again for its third year of spooky enchantments! Every day for the month of October I will attempt to draw a picture that is Halloween themed.
One day Daniel Whitaker tried his hand at bobbing for apples. It was one of the many fun activities available at his schools Halloween dance. Pressured by his peers, and trying to forget his fear of drowning, Daniel submerged his head in the cold water. He quickly realized this was more fun than he thought. He also found he was a natural at the game.
Just when Daniel had his jaws set to bite into one the crisp apples, he couldn't help but notice the dead shriveled hands reaching up towards him from the now bottomless pail he was currently sticking his head in. When did the bottom disappear? And why must it be him who had to witness the horror of the murky depths? There were plenty of perfectly horrible children who had had their turns before him. Surely no one would have missed them if they had been pulled down to a watery grave. So why had the hands come for him? Daniel had no time to find an answer. He had to act swiftly! But more importantly, he needed to snatch his apple, or everyone would make fun of him for failing at the game. And public ridicule seemed a far worser fate for our boy with the ears.
