AfTeR TrIcK oR TrEaT!

This is a 100 word, picture book story about Halloween. It was inspired by a draft illustration I did several years ago called "Eyes and a flashlight"
Happy Halloween!

After Trick or Treat:

I cannot sleep.
The lights went out when the thunder came.
It's not the same bedroom in the dark...
...but I'm not afraid.

I forgot to close my closet door.
Eyes beside my backpack blink.
Something groaned or was it me?
Do trolls like stinky feet?
A ghostly bump sits on my bed...
...but I'm not afraid.

My under-bed-monster has a new address; I don't know where.
I wonder if he still eats toes?
Spiders, extra large, scratch at the moonlit windowpane...
...but I'm not afraid.

I keep my friendly flashlight handy!
It's not the same bedroom in the light.

You must use a zipped folder to send your weekly assignment to the Dropbox. Do not send subfolders within your zipped folder. Place all of the .java and .class file for the week into the one zipped folder. The zip folder should be named CIS355A_YourLastName_iLab_Week1, and this zip folder will contain all the weekly programming assignments. Required Software. CIS 355A ALL WEEK ILABS LATEST
