2021 Halloween Contest Winner: Doorway to Serenity by ExRwood

Ethan and John sat in the warm sand. They sipped their beers and stared out at the horizon, lost in thought. Waves lapped at the shore as the gray concrete pilings of the pier loomed overhead, casting long shadows down the beach.

Ethan broke the silence. “You seem better.”

“Better?” John said.

“You weren't doing too good after she died,” Ethan said.

John smiled and finished his beer. “Yeah. I feel better.”

“That's good.” Ethan pulled another beer from the cooler and passed it to him.

“You're not gonna ask why?” John said.

Featured Subgenre


The Halloween category is for stories about that spookiest time of year and includes 91 stories. There are many aspects of Halloween that these stories cover, including costumes, trick-or-treating, haunted houses, and Halloween rituals.
