On Halloween night, Annie sneaked out to the creepy old Montgomery mansion.
Annie’s parents told her not to go. “It’s got bats,” they warned.
“Bats don’t scare me!” Annie said.
Annie’s big sister said she should stay away. “It’s full of creepy spiders,” she cautioned.
“I like spiders.” Annie smiled.
Annie’s friend James nodded. “That place is haunted, all right,” he said with a shudder. Then he grinned. “I

Annie was warned …
… but Annie wasn’t scared.
