Things That Go Crunch in the Night by Mattygrl

Author: Mattygrl
Title: Things That Go Crunch in the Night
Theme: Harvest Time / Halloween
Elements: "A long-drawn wail came down the wind, like the cry of some evil and lonely creature. It rose and fell, and ended on a high, piercing note. Even as they sat and stood, as if suddenly frozen, it was answered by another cry, fainter and further off, but no less chilling to the blood. Then there was a silence, broken only by the sound of the wind in the leaves."
Author's Notes: This story is set in the pre-quest period. As such, Frodo is 32, Sam is 20, Merry is 18, and Pippin is 10. I might write the boys sounding younger than they really “should” be at that age, but I think it is appropriate in the context of the story. This story was beta-ed by the lovely and talented Ladyhawke Legend. Happy Halloween!
Summary: The boys decide to dress up for some All Hallows' Eve mischief and have quite a shocking experience themselves!
