- Carved, flickering pumpkins perched on the porch, and cheap decorations cluttered the walls with a few fold out chairs. I snatched the bowl of candy and plopped in an old chair. Two shadowy figures appeared sprinting my direction. They ran desperately, rolling in the leaves and throwing toads at one another. I admired the two little boys' longing gaze at the bowl of treats.

Windows and doors sparkled in the light and in the distance, the contrasting colours and patterns fused together to form a breathtaking patchwork quilt of colour....   [tags: Teenager, Birthday, Thoughts]
