Virginia and Sam are having a problem this Halloween. Will they make it through It? Let's see.

Virginia and Sam started to have problems in their marriage. Sam began to sneak around and see other women. This called for drastic action from Virginia. On Halloween night she tried to put a curse on Frank but the curse was reversed. Before she could put a curse on someone she had to catch them sleeping. Frank pretended to be sleep one night when she came into their bedroom to put the curse on him. Just as she said,"Telly-telly, Frank sat up in the bed and pulled a large mirror away from under the covers. When he did that Virginia's curse was reversed. She transformed into this creepy old, green witch dressed in purple with a purple and black broom to ride. Frank just looked at her and laughed. She became so angry at her husband that she took it out on every woman she could find. She left flying as fast as she could. She lived in a hollow tree by night and disguised herself as a lizard by day. She would choose her victims using alphabetical order. If their first name began with A, she would be turned into a half-ant-half-anteater. If B, maybe a half-bear-half-boar and so on. She had to live in a hollow tree by night and disguises herself as a lizard during the day. That is until she spotted her next victim. She would scope them out during the day. And wait until they were asleep so she could place a curse on them. The Townsend's red bricked house was right down the dirt path from her tree. Peaviny waited in their house as a lizard until they were asleep. As soon as they closed their eyes, Peaviny went under the covers to check for a mirror. After that she look like a witch and hang over their bed. When she said, "Telly-telly-" a little four year old boy with red hair and freckles in his face walked into the bedroom. "I'm hungry, I wanna eat!" His mother muffled,"Just pour yourself a bowl of cereal until mama and dad get up, honey." The little boy headed for the door to leave when all of a sudden he turned around to have a quick look. Peaviny thought that the boy was gone and appeared. the little boy yelled "Mama, mama can you see that?" His mother and dad both answered with their eyes still closed, "Yes, now go and fix you a bowl of cereal." The little boy left like they told him. Peaviny started again with the curse. "Telly-tell-tip-ton-tune" and quickly left the room through the opened window in the form of a witch form. Mrs. Townsend slowly turned into a half-crow-half-cow. Each time she snored she began to change more and more. As Mr. Townsend began to reach for his covers that were completely off of him, he turned and looked at Mrs.Townsend. "Why on earth do you have to__," He began to yell and jumped out of the bed in a flash. He tried to reach his rifle leaning against the nearby stand. Just as he was about to reach it, Mrs. Townsend woke up and tried to speak. It was at this time that she realized what had happened to her. She jumped over Mr. Townsend and busted out through the front door. She was never seen again. Peaviny maybe still around today. When you go to bed on Halloween night, make sure you sleep with a mirror beside your pillow. She wouldn't dare come near you or she will look into the mirror and have a worse curse placed on her than before.
