What can YOU say in six sentences?
We call her Wiji but unsure if that’s her real name and Grandpa says she was about thirty when her mom died back in 1916 and ever since, she lives by herself. She never seems to do much or so we think except sweep the sidewalk with her old broom and only says hello to me out of the dozens of kids in the nabe. She just stares at most but the most make fun so I think that she speaks to me cause of the respect I give.
Well, Wiji seems to never celebrate any holiday since she lives alone, but on All Hallows Eve she seems to cheer up, not that she smiles or anything although she smiles at me when nobody’s looking, but she does offer treats to those who knock on her old wooden door. She answers with a broom in hand and always gives us Jello wrapped in an orange napkin. My friends say it’s poison and throw it away, but I always eat mine because I trust her and she seems to like me and I never became ill.
Well, this year we knocked on her door and again, we were treated with Jello wrapped in an orange napkin. And I ate mine right away, but my seven friends gave their treat to Tony’s pet dog and Tommy gave his to his drunk grandfather, and you know, they passed. Cleever, the dog, never woke up and Tommy’s granddad died after three days in the hospital.
We won’t tell anybody because we believe Wiji will cast a spell, but why didn’t the Jello wrapped in an orange napkin affect me? My friends say she’s in love with me and make fun, and I only laugh because she just says hello to me and no one else. Anyway, today I learned she was an old flame of Grandpa's and everyone says I look like him.
