I was real little when I said I wanted to be a mermaid for Halloween. My mom made me a really pretty pink mermaid tail. The end was open so I could put my feet threw it and walk. We got some seashells when we went to the beach in the summer. So my dad made little holes in two and my mom took green yarn and put them together so I had a real mermaid top like a real mermaid would wear.
Daddy had to work and Mom gave out candy, so my brother had to take me trick or treating. He didn't like it. It was the last time he went trick or treating and he didn't want to watch me all night. But Mom said he had to.
It wasn't dark when we went trick or treating. My brother was Dracula. He tried to make me be a scary monster but I wanted to be a mermaid. Then he tried to make me wear fangs and be a monster mermaid. I stuck my tongue out at him and said no way!
I couldn't walk too fast cause my tail would trip me, and my brother kept telling me to hurry up. It got dark and cold and windy. It looked like it was going to rain.
"Hurry up!" he said.
"I am!" I said.
Soon there weren't as many kids trick or treating. My brother said, "Let's keep going. I don't want Halloween to end too soon."
I new why. People kept saying "Aren't you too old for trick or treating?" He didn't go again.
It got colder. My top was just those shells so I was getting cold. But I didn't want to be a baby. So I didn't say nothing.
Then I felt something on my back. It was raining! Now we had to go back. But we were at the last house now on the block. So we went up to it and my brother knocked.
The lady that gave us candy looked at me funny. I didn't know why. We started walking back home. Then my brother looked at me.
"Hey!" he said. "Where's your top?"
I looked down. It must have fall off someplace, cause it was gone!
"I don't know!" I said.
My brother took off his Dracula cape and put it on me. We looked for my top but we couldn't find it. I wonder how many houses we went to after I lost it.
It rained harder so we had to stop looking and go home. I couldn't run because of my tail. I had the bottom of my bathing suit on under it, so I took off my tail and put my shoes back on. I held my tail in one hand and my brother's hand with the other and we ran home.
By the time we got home it was pooring and we was soaked.
Mommy made us change when we went in. I put on my nightgown and ate some of my candy then went to bed. My brother never trick or treated again. But he took me every year after that and made sure I never lost none of my costume again.
