Party Monsters

Kayla and her mother taped orange and black balloons to the front door and planted a sign in the yard.  It read, “Kayla’s Monster Bash Here.”

“The troll I rented will be here any minute,” Kayla said. “Thanks for letting me have this party, Mom.”

“Not a problem, kiddo. I’ll be next door if you need me.” Kayla’s mom waved good-bye, and Kayla dashed inside.

The doorbell rang. Kayla jerked the door open and gasped. There stood a witch, glaring at Kayla.

“I’m here to ruin your party,” the witch cackled.

“You’re too late,” Kayla said. “It’s already ruined. No thanks to you. Honestly!” she fumed. “What kind of business are they running, anyway?”

Kayla grabbed the surprised witch and pulled her inside.

“Little girl, what are you doing?”

Kayla propped her hands on her hips. “I asked the party company for a troll, not a witch. Trolls are cheaper, and I can’t afford a witch.” Kayla paced. “What am I going to do? My party starts soon.”

“I don’t care about your party. I only need one more ingredient for my Princess Vanishing Potion. If you know what’s good for you, you’ll get me a quart of gecko guts. Now.” The witch stooped close to Kayla and breathed heavily, giving Kayla her best ‘evil eye’ stare.

Kayla waved her hand in front of her face and held her nose. “Wow. I am sorry,” She pushed the witch to the hallway bathroom. She rummaged through a drawer and pulled out an old toothbrush and tooth paste. “Here, take these and brush your teeth right away or you will not be getting a tip.”
