Dressed up for Halloween, my brother (8) and I (10) excitedly waited for my girlfriend from school to arrive. Not only was this our first Halloween in Rhode Island, but it was our first time go out Trick-o-treating without any adults. Gleefully, we ran out into a night, crisp and clear. We crunched our way across huge lawns, so we could knock on the doors. Some of the houses were big old mansions that had been divided into apartments. Once we went up to the upper floor in one and knocked on one of the apartment doors. An older woman answered. She was very surprised to have someone come asking treats at her place, but she told us to wait and made us a sandwich. After that, we Trick-o-treated at a candy store. What fun! I got some wax candy lips, tried them on, then ate them. Finally, we made our way back to our apartment happy, tired, and with full bags of candy.
