I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Thank you for entering the fic fest!
Author's Response: Wow! So glad you liked it! (Technically, I didn't really enter the Fest, since I didn't use one of the P&S Halloween prompts, but I always do try to write a Halloween story--and a Christmas story!--even if I don't get anything else written in that year. I've become totally obsessed with quilting, and I keep telling myself to put down my needle and pick up my pen... Hee!) Thank you so much for reading and reviewing! Happy Halloween! 😸

Very creepy! Thank you so much a brilliant Halloween story
Author's Response: Thanks for saying so! I had such a terrific time telling both stories, and there were several times when I nearly creeped myself out! So glad you enjoyed it! Many thanks for reviewing! Happy Halloween! 👻
Great story! Creepy, clever idea and perfect characterisation. a proper Halloween tale. Thank you.
Author's Response: Thanks!!! My inspiration was a monochromatic artwork on Google images of a stark black, gnarled, bare tree silhouetted against shaded blue circles radiating out from a full white moon. Whoa! If only I could come up with a plot to go with the Dancing Tree, which was what had IMMEDIATELY popped into my mind to describe the tree image. Well, that preceded the site prompts, so I kept turning my original idea over in my mind... I had basic idea of story in two parts, but essentially, this storytelling was stream-of-consciousness writing from beginning to end over two days' time, plus additional revision a few days later. *kicks self for waiting so long to get started* But it turned out okay, and I'm so glad you liked it! Happy Halloween, rosina! 🎃
