The White Pumpkin

The boy dressed in the skeleton costume leans in to examine the white pumpkin sitting on the doorstep.  He has never seen one quite this color before, and it is almost perfectly round.  Two triangular eyes and a jagged mouth have been drawn on it in marker.

He sets down his bag of candy and reaches out to touch it.  It is cool and smooth.

The boy quickly backs away as the white pumpkin begins to hatch.
