Come On Let’s Go is a scary Halloween tale about two friends who have a sleepover on All Hallows Eve.
There were two young girls, named Emma and Veronica, who lived on the same street. It was Halloween night and Emma’s parents had gone away for the weekend. She was a little nervous about being on her own in the house overnight, so she invited her friend Veronica over to keep her company.
The girls planned to have a sleepover. During the day, they swapped clothes and did each other’s hair and nails. In the evening, they ordered a pizza and watched a horror movie. Now and then, a group of kids would ring the doorbell and yell, “Trick or Treat!” The two girls had fun handing out all of the Halloween candy.
Afterwards, the girls spent a long time chatting and gossiping about the other kids in their school. Before they knew it, it was past midnight. The girls were both very tired so they decided it was time to go to sleep. Emma got into her own bed, while Veronica had to sleep on a futon on the floor.
The room was completely silent and Emma was gradually drifting off to sleep. Just then, Veronica sat up and began shaking her friend.
“Come on, let’s go downstairs and get some ice cream,” she said loudly.
Emma was very sleepy and muttered, “I’m not hungry.”
“Well, I am,” replied Veronica. “Come on, let’s go downstairs.”
Emma turned over in bed. “There’s no ice cream in the freezer,” she moaned drowsily. “We ate it all.”
“Then… let’s go to the store and buy some,” said Veronica.
“I don’t want any,” mumbled her friend. “You go on your own.”
“No! It’s not safe to walk alone at night,” Veronica whined. “Come on, let’s go…”
Emma lay in bed and tried to ignore her.
“Please, Emma!” Veronica started crying. “Please! I really want some ice cream…” Tears were streaming down her face.
Emma was exasperated. She was sick and tired of listening to her friend whine.
“OMG, Veronica! OK! OK!” she shouted. “If it’s that important to you, then I’ll go to the shop with you. Just calm down!”
The girls quickly got dressed and put on their coats. As soon as they left the house, however, Veronica grabbed her friend’s hand and started dragging her in the opposite direction.
“This isn’t the way to the store,” said Emma.
“Sssshhhh!” hissed Veronica. “We’re going to the police station. When I looked in the mirror, I saw a man with an axe hiding under your bed!”
