FF: Halloweens can be emotional too

“Mom…Mom….” *the pitch rises* “Mooom” screams Riley from the garage like room
“Yes, Riley?”
“I need a Holowine costume. Everyone in school is talking about it”

“Its Haloween and honey, you know we don’t have that kind of money”
“But, we have all this trinkets, these twine and sea things, make something for me”

Mom resigned to Riley’s innocence

“OK, I will make a mermaid costume for you”
“Yay, Now I will feel a part of my friends and not lonely as usual”
“Are you lonely?” asks mom
“I have no friends; they say I’m not one of them”


That evening a mother hugged her child with tears in her eyes in the dim light of the refugee camp
