The Ghoulish Glow – A Spooksville Halloween Tale

Once upon a time, in the tiny town of Spooksville, lived a peculiar man named Mister Bob. Mister Bob was a pumpkin salesperson with a mysterious secret; every Halloween, the pumpkins he sold would begin to glow a brilliant, eerie hue of green!

Folks lined up eagerly, year after year, eager to get their otherworldly pumpkins. They made Spooksville the most unique Halloween destination throughout the land. However, nobody knew why Bob’s pumpkins turned green, save for Bob himself.

Unbeknownst to them, Mister Bob wasn’t exactly a ‘Mister.’ They weren’t even human at all! Hidden beneath the guise of a friendly salesman lay a mischievous ghost. On the eve of each Halloween, he would inject a splash of his spectral essence into each pumpkin, lending it the ghostly, verdant glow.

Then came the Halloween when Bob, now rather ghostly aged himself, had to move onto the spectral retirement home. Spooksville’s residents feared the loss of their cherished green pumpkin fest. But when Halloween arrived, they were in for a delightful shock.

The pumpkins, yet again, glowed green, and from the shadows emerged a smiling ghost, hobbling on a spectral cane. “Happy Halloween! And remember,” Bob chuckled, “For an a-BOO-liciously spooky Halloween, just add a little bit of ghoul!”
