Although I felt a little sad for Verna, you hit the motherlode! Another great story~

OK..you did it, You made me cry over a Halloween story. Are you happy now?

Now the only question is what happened to her after that? And did you get a stomach ache?

breaks my heart...

Sweet, but sad. You were a nice boy, Stephen!!

Huh. Very intriguing. But like Dilloway, I think it begs the question of why she moved away and what happened to her after that. I guess you'll never know ... which is another mystery in itself. Great story!

You were a very kind boy. And I think your gesture helped her decide to get back in touch with people, but in a new place where she could start with a clean slate.

Oh now you went and made me sad. I'm gonna go tell someone a fart joke. Maybe that old guy across the street....? I haven't seen him in awhile.

Sweet little Stephen turned into Nice Mr. C. Love, Janie

Oh dear. Now you've left me hanging. Like the others I want to know more about the ghost lady, like where did she go and why?

Well wherever Verna went....I'm sure she had a smile at the very nice young man who gave her a chance. Good story.

Awwww....I feel so bad for Verna. So many people are alone and even shunned because they're just misunderstood. Glad to see you weren't that shallow. I hope she found happiness later. I know you did, with that GIANT BOX OF CHOCOLATE! :)

Oh my gosh, I'm all choked up! Not what I expected from a Halloween tale :) I want to hug you so hard right now...what a great kid you were!

She moved for a fresh start.

You always have a big twist in your endings.

I wouldn't expect a Hallowe'en story could be so heartwarming! I'm glad you tried to make her feel better; good for you. And now my mouth is watering for a Hershey's bar. Dang.

But why did she move when she finally had a friend? Awww. I guess it was too little too late, and she wanted a new start. That's kinda sad, but at least you gave her a happy memory - and she gave you one, too! :-)

This was a very touching story. I'm glad you re-posted it. Happy Halloween, Stephen. xoRobyn

The NEXT line (the one you didn't write) would have read: "Three years later, our new neighbors started finding the bodies in what used to be Verna's back yard."
By: Katy on October 31, 2013
Loved it... and yes, you were a good and considerate young man. Did you share your treasure?
By: Daniel LaFrance on October 31, 2013
Poor Verna. But that's a great story. All that chocolate would give a kid diabetes. Yikes.
By: Michael Offutt on October 31, 2013
I loved that story the first time you posted and and thoroughly enjoyed the re-read. You were really a sweet kid.
By: Cheryl P. on October 31, 2013
Awesome story. Loved how you took to her.
