OPTIONAL TASK 238
This was never part of the plan, how did you let this happen?!
As the spooky month of October was approaching rapidly, Bowie was really getting into the fall and Halloween spirit early. Bowie loved silly spooky pranks, as did her sister Avery. They both knew Everly was easy to scare so they used Avery’s spare key to let themselves into Everly’s home. They headed out into the garden and Bowie dressed up in a creepy clown mask and hid behind the couch she had out on the porch. Avery then set up a charcuterie board on the table along with some prosecco to make it seem like she had come over to set up a nice surprise as opposed to the surprise they really had in store. Avery then handed a fake knife covered in fake blood to Bowie, before she went to the front door to keep an eye out for Everly.
After what seemed like an eternity Bowie heard the front door open followed by her sisters voice “you’re home, I have a surprise for you”. She had exclaimed it rather loudly to ensure Bowie knew it was go time. There was a pause and Bowie could hear mumbled chatting, and then things seemed to go quiet. Bowie was crouched down wondering what was taking so damn long. But then heard footsteps approaching and Everly gasp at the food Avery had placed out. Unable to wait any longer Bowie jumped up from behind the couch and screamed. Putting their prank into motion.
Everly immediately freaked out and as she tried to turn and run away she fell down the porch steps. Bowie ripped off her mask and dropped the fake knife and ran over to her, as Avery ran to her too. “Oh my gosh, she is out cold” Bowie said. “This was never part of the plan, how did you let this happen?!” Avery asked Bowie. “This isn’t just my fault okay, I didn’t realise she was still on the steps” Bowie replied. Bowie rushed inside and got a cold compress and ran back out and placed it over her head. She checked for a pulse and it seemed fine. “Come on Ev wake up” Avery said. “Everly can you hear me?” Bowie called out. She lifted her legs to get the blood flowing, hoping it would help wake her up. Just then she sat bolt upright quickly “gotcha” she chuckled. Bowie and Avery both sighed with relief before they both laughed. “Damn it I was really worried about you” Avery said as she hit her in the arm. Everly laughed “I kinda figured something was up. I saw Bowie’s car down the street” she said. “Okay you really got us. Good job” she smiled. “Thanks” Everly smiled before standing up. “Now let’s eat” she added as she headed over to the table of food.
