The​ ​ Brooklawn​ ​ Buzz  September/October​ ​ edition​ ​ 2017    brutal​ ​ and​ ​ Augusta,​ ​ ME,​ ​ was​ ​ not​ ​ ready for​ ​ what​ ​ was​ ​ going​ ​ to​ ​ happen. In​ ​ the​ ​ pumpkin​ ​ patch​ ​ the​ ​ pumpkins​ ​ were all​ ​ ready​ ​ for​ ​ Halloween​ ​ and​ ​ to​ ​ get​ ​ an owner.​ ​ It​ ​ was​ ​ the​ ​ one​ ​ night​ ​ ​ a ​ ​ year​ ​ they could​ ​ come​ ​ to​ ​ life. “Of​ ​ course​ ​ the​ ​ one​ ​ day​ ​ a ​ ​ year​ ​ we​ ​ can come​ ​ to​ ​ life​ ​ we​ ​ can​ ​ also​ ​ get​ ​ taken.”​ ​ said Venus’s​ ​ sister​ ​ Ali Venus​ ​ was​ ​ the​ ​ youngest​ ​ in​ ​ their​ ​ family Dad​ ​ and​ ​ Anna's​ ​ older​ ​ brother​ ​ at​ ​ the Lakewood​ ​ Pumpkin​ ​ Patch.​ ​ The​ ​ big green,​ ​ and​ ​ orange​ ​ sign​ ​ said​ ​ “welcome.” The​ ​ Mirro's​ ​ have​ ​ been​ ​ coming​ ​ to​ ​ this pumpkin​ ​ patch​ ​ since​ ​ the​ ​ twins​ ​ were one. “Ten​ ​ dollars​ ​ please.”​ ​ said​ ​ the​ ​ girl​ ​ in​ ​ the red​ ​ shirt. “Here​ ​ you​ ​ go.”​ ​ Sarah​ ​ exclaimed. HONK,​ ​ HONK! “I​ ​ used​ ​ to​ ​ think​ ​ this​ ​ place​ ​ was​ ​ magical,” said​ ​ Ana​ ​ with​ ​ a ​ ​ sigh​ ​ “but​ ​ now​ ​ it's​ ​ just​ ​ a pumpkin​ ​ patch.” Scarlet​ ​ Bill​ ​ walked​ ​ out​ ​ of​ ​ the​ ​ house​ ​ with brown​ ​ boots​ ​ and​ ​ an​ ​ orange​ ​ shirt.​ ​ She hopped​ ​ in​ ​ the​ ​ car​ ​ and​ ​ smiled​ ​ at​ ​ Jenny. Jenny,​ ​ Ana,​ ​ and​ ​ Scarlet​ ​ had​ ​ been friends​ ​ forever.​ ​ They​ ​ met​ ​ here​ ​ at​ ​ this very​ ​ pumpkin​ ​ patch. “​ ​ Hi​ ​ Mrs.Mirro,”​ ​ Scarlet​ ​ Bill​ ​ said​ ​ with​ ​ a yawn,​ ​ ​ “ ​ ​ who​ ​ are​ ​ we​ ​ picking​ ​ up​ ​ next?” “Here's​ ​ the​ ​ perfect​ ​ pumpkin!”​ ​ Yelled​ ​ Bax from​ ​ a ​ ​ far​ ​ away​ ​ corner. “​ ​ Bax.”​ ​ sighed​ ​ Mrs.Mirro. “Ok.”​ ​ said​ ​ Ana The​ ​ car​ ​ went​ ​ on​ ​ Dice​ ​ Street​ ​ and​ ​ slowed down.​ ​ Dice​ ​ street​ ​ was​ ​ huge,​ ​ it​ ​ was practically​ ​ the​ ​ whole​ ​ town. There​ ​ was​ ​ a ​ ​ note​ ​ on​ ​ the​ ​ pumpkin​ ​ stem and​ ​ it​ ​ read: Be​ ​ Careful    “Venus​ ​ no!”​ ​ That​ ​ was​ ​ the​ ​ last​ ​ thing​ ​ she heard​ ​ befoer​ ​ she​ ​ was​ ​ taken.​ ​ She​ ​ fell asleep​ ​ on​ ​ the​ ​ car​ ​ ride​ ​ home.   3​ ​ minutes​ ​ later “​ ​ Stop!”​ ​ screamed​ ​ Coal. “​ ​ What?​ ​ What​ ​ is​ ​ it?”​ ​ yelled​ ​ Sarah. “We’re​ ​ here.”​ ​ mumbled​ ​ Coal. Sarah's​ ​ car​ ​ pulled​ ​ up​ ​ to​ ​ Bax​ ​ Hunter’s house​ ​ with​ ​ a ​ ​ creek.​ ​ He​ ​ stumbled​ ​ out​ ​ of his​ ​ doorway​ ​ into​ ​ the​ ​ car.​ ​ It​ ​ was​ ​ silent until​ ​ they​ ​ met​ ​ up​ ​ with​ ​ Elliot’s 11 The​ ​ pumpkin​ ​ didn't​ ​ move​ ​ until​ ​ she​ ​ heard a​ ​ faint​ ​ whisper. Wow ​ ​ it's ​ ​ dark ​ ​ in ​ ​ here. ​ ​ What ​ ​ about ​ ​ some light?
