Not Microwave Safe: A Halloween Story by Kyle Adams
Most years, I write something for Halloween despite never having celebrated it in my entire life. Mostly, it’s because I have American friends, and for years we did a collaboration in time for Halloween. I’ve written something for this Halloween too, but I’ll talk about that in another post.
It’s always fun to write something since it’s all the Halloween I’ll get. My other way to experience Halloween is to read…
I saw Not Microwave Safe last year right after Halloween – it’s the cover! – and thought I’d read it, but then I forgot all about it. But when I went searching October stories, I found it again.
So… We have Kent and Uriah who are going to a haunted house. Kent hates scary things, and Uriah loves them. But things don’t go as planned, and soon there are scary clowns everywhere LOL.
I was part amused, part horrified. This story taught me one thing – I’m not the forgiving kind. Had hubby pulled anything like they did here, he’d be sleeping in the dog house for a month…but then I don’t do well with scary houses and murderous clowns.
Jokes aside, this is a short little story about an established couple walking through a haunted house. Scary things will happen, but it had me laughing too.
Kent has always hated Halloween and anything else that’s scary. But when his boyfriend, Uriah, wants to take him to a haunted house, he can’t say no.
Uriah can’t contain his excitement and loves creepy surprises. However, as the evening progresses and everything seems wrong, can he convince Kent to see the night through?
For Kent and Uriah, Halloween starts with a pop and ends with a bang, and life will never be the same again.
