My pets get possessed and take over our house!



It all started on Halloween morning. Who knew that fluffy and scaly creatures could do such a thing? I know I didn’t.

I went over to feed my pet beta, Snufflelufagas(Snuffles), and saw that he was turned around, so I couldn’t see his head. I dropped five food pellets in his tank, but he didn’t come up to eat it, which was odd. I tapped on his tank, and he angrily turned around.

“Ah!” I screamed. Snuffles’ eyes were glowing bright red. “What? How is that possible? What happened, Snuffles?” As weird as it was, I decided I would deal with him later.

I went downstairs to see that my family wasn’t up, so I had to feed my bunny, Bunn E. He, like Snuffles, was turned around. I got a scoop of food, and was surprised that Bunn E. didn’t run up to the container of pellets like usual. He loves food. 

“Oh Bunn E., not you too! What am I going to do? Are all of our pets like this?” I asked to nobody in particular.

Right then, I heard a clunk! Clunk! Boom! Splash! Clunk! I soon saw Snuffles’ tank at the bottom of the steps. 

“Snuffles?! Is that even physically possible? How’d you get down here?” I asked him.

“Anything is possible.” He replied back. That really scared me! Fish don’t talk! I bet Bunn E. is going to talk too!

“How are you...Oh, never mind. What happened? Why are your eyes glowing red, like Bunn E.’s?”

“Wow. I thought you were the smart one, Hailie. We are possessed.”

“What?!  Possessed? Possessed by who?”

“ You will learn that later.”

After that, Bunn E. ran over to Snuffles. They seemed to be communicating in squeak. So, first fish can talk, but now they can squeak?

“Hey Bunn E.,” I said. “say something. I want to know what your voice is.”

“Yes, yes. I shall speak. But, me and Snuffles have something to do...” replied Bunn E.

Both of the animals laughed. Not a regular laugh, but an evil cackle, one like a witch’s.

“We may seem nice now, but, we have something to do.” said Bunn E. With that, both pets knocked over the desk in our dining room.

“Shh! You’ll wake everyone up!” I exclaimed.

“Hush, Hailie. We put them under a spell. They won’t wake up until twelve.” replied Snuffles.

I watched as both my beloved pets started to wreck the entire house. They pushed all of the papers off of the dining room table. They knocked over the T. V., which by the way broke. They knocked over chairs, ripped up the couches, and even pulled and smashed the food out of our cabinets.

After Bunn E. and Snuffles were done, I said, “Why? Why did you do that! Now I’ll get in trouble!” I was really upset. I would surely be grounded until I was sixty years old.

“Relax, we can fix it.” said Bunn E. With a flick of his gray ear, the whole house was back to normal. Everything happened in reverse. The papers were flung onto the table, the food fell into the cabinets looking good as new. The couches were fixed, and the chairs floated back up. I must say, it was cool watching the T.V. become unbroken.

“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Wait a minute though...” I began. “Why did you do that? What did I ever do to you?” I was very furious. I mean, I love them to death!

Bunn E. and Snuffles didn’t say anything. They didn’t move, either.

“Snuffles! I always feed you, clean your tank, and talk to you! Bunn E.! I always pet and talk to you,  feed you, and give you treats! Why would you do such evil things?” I screamed at them.

“First of all,” started Snuffles. “We aren’t the real Bunn E. and Snuffles. We are possessed. Also, do you know how hard it is to be an animal? No posable thumbs, the same exact food, and our houses are too small!”

“Okay, well sorry about that. But, if you are possessed, then who possessed you? A giraffe and a raccoon?” I answered back.

“No.” said Bunn E,

“I am possessed by Ruby.” said Snuffles.

“I am possessed by Simba.” said Bunn E.

Right then, Snuffles clomped back up the steps, and Bunn E. went back to his cage. His eyes were black, as normal.

“Simba and Ruby?” I said. I was very upset. “You were possessed by Simba and Ruby?”

Simba was my grandma’s dog. We all loved him very much. We think that he was the best dog ever. The day he died was horrible. Horrible. He meant a lot to me.

Ruby was my first ever own pet. She was a red beta. I loved her very much. She was beautiful, and survived our move from Maryland. She was just a fish, but she was wonderful. The day she died was also horrible. My pets today were possessed by my old beloved pets.

When it was twelve, my family woke up. 

“How long have you been up?” asked my mom.

“Uh, you know. I don’t remember...”

“Was the rabbit fed?” asked Kaitlin.

“Yes.” I said quickly. Bunn E. was still scaring me.

I soon went up to my room, still bewildered about what had just happened.

“Oh, Snuffles.” I said. “You don’t have any idea what just happened, do you?”

A thought just occurred to me.Would this happen every Halloween? Oh no!


The end...?
