Can you hear the giggles?
Let us follow the merry laughter
Where are we going?
Oh goodness me
Where are my manners
Welcome to our Halloween Soiree
Hosted by our Dear friend Miss Vanessa
over at A Fanciful Twist
Tonight dear friends
As the large moon rises high into the night sky
and the chill of the crisp autumn breeze starts to kiss
the tips of our noses,
I thought we would adventure deep into the forests of Wonderland
We shall frolic amongst the creatures of the night
Come now....Hurry along
The laughter leads the way
You dont want to fall behind
The woods are very dark and very full of
all sorts of mischievious characters
this Halloween evening.
There it is
Just beyond that group of trees.
The fireflies will light our way
The ghost and goblins
have already arrived
such Spooky Ghosties
And Gouly Goblins
Have some treats and settle in amongst the pumpkins
I think I will take a seat right here
And I think I would love some candy corn before I begin my tale
Now it is time for a Ghost story.....
This is the tale of Michael and Nicholas.
They were twin brothers around eight years old when they stumbled
down the rabbit hole and found there way to
Michael and Nicholas were very spirited young souls
and were known to get themselves swept away in spectacular adventures
Once arriving in Wonderland
the two youngsters decided to head for the woods of the
They had plans to hide up high in the trees
and jump onto his back when he passed under them.
The two boys never saw the Jabberwocky that day
but they did have the most amazing time
jumping through the treetops
Tossing acorns at some of the fantastical fairies that flew by
all in good sport of course..
Fairies can be pretty mischievious themselves
so they joined in tossing acorns back
Yes Michael and Nicholas were like
two peas in a pod
peanut butter and jelly
tea and sugar
They never were apart
Thick as thieves those two were
They had a bond no one could break
and there in would lie the tragedy
While high up in one especially grand Oak berry tree
Nicholas saw a rare bright red Lokiberry flower
You could lick the petals and become invisible for hours
It was too much of a temptation to resist
Nicholas and Michael had almost made it to the flower
when the branch below Michaels foot gave way
Michael who was holding up Nicholas lost his footing and fell
causing Nicholas to fall as well
Michael caught a branch with one hand
and Nicholas with the other
Michael knew he could not hold on to both
and so did his brother, Nicholas
"Let me go Michael
If not we both are going to fall"
Michael knew he could not live without Nicholas
He looked into his brother's eyes as the branch started to crack
"Where you go brother, I go too. Remember"
"Always together. Never Apart"
Michael released his grip before the branch even had the chance to break
Never letting go the brothers fell to the ground
The fairies and Wonderland creatures
found the two brothers lying side by side
still holding hands
And as they stood looking on
They all witnessed the single red Lokiberry flower
float from the tree down until it landed
right in the boys clutched hands
It's gift to the two adventurous souls that dared to reach the top.
Now dont cry or be sad
for remember when I told you
that nothing could seperate the brothers
Well death could not tear them apart either
For as you see
"Death would be their greatest adventure"
Michael and Nicholas still jump from tree to tree
and run amongst the fairies today
You can sometimes hear their haunted laughter
and the rustling of the branches
Still together and still on Adventures
Did you hear that?
I thought I heard the leaves shaking
in that branch above your head
