“The Witch-Out” by Melissa Hassan
“Order...order!” Eleanora yelled over the loud protests from the coven of sister witches gathered in the great hall of her manor.“What do you mean by, a 'witch-out'?” asked one of the sister witches.“It means we are not going to be doing our usual witching tonight,” replied Eleanora pounding the gavel on the table as the protesters began to yell even louder this time.“Order...I shall have order in this hall!” Eleanor yelled loudly as her voice echoed through the hall and reverberated o...
“The Witches of Liberty” by Amaya .
The meeting took place over a little campfire in the middle of a circle-shaped clearing, surrounded by trees. The fire flickered, illuminating the green, warty faces of the four witches that stood around it. One of them, the one named Gwendolyn, prodded the logs at the bottom of the fire with a long stick. “Let this meeting of the Witches of Liberty begin,” Beatrice said. She was the shortest one and was wearing an almost comically tall, crooked hat, much taller than any of the other witches' hats, so that she would...
“Potions For You” by Orenda .
(this is super silly and exaggerated, but I had so much fun writing it :')~Bitter winds howled and leaves rustled, floating away in the air. It was so cold, you could literally freeze into the frozen people from the Znarnia. But that didn't bother anyone. The weather had been just brilliant and suitable.Regardless of the horrible weather, people went to work and life went on. It was a custom that every weekend, they'd gather at midnight, circle around the bonfire and exchange st...
“Witch's Brew” by Amiable Sorceress
Wendy witch was going to be late again, and she knew it. It was a long trip from the Broomslick hair salon to Wisteria witch’s favorite gathering place on Halloween night in front of those human houses she enjoyed gawking at. No matter how fast Wendy’s car would drive, there was no way she would make it on time for the annual witching hunt. In Wendy’s opinion, she and her comrades were far too young to enlist this year. After all, they were only 600 years of age, and Whitley witch would only come for the snacks, leaving Wisteria to mull a...
“F*ck This” by Lina Oz
“Sisters, are we ready?” Vanessa hisses, staring at the two other women with narrowed and dark eyes, clutching the spell book in her pale hands. She’s the tallest of the three, with long black hair to her knees and slender fingers; Regina is the thinnest, with icy blue eyes and silvery hair that swirls around her shoulders. Mary Ann is the smallest in both height and stature; she’s a tiny thing, with a small round nose and small red lips and small dry hands. But her brown eyes are large and unblinking.“Yes, sister,” Regina and Mary...
“Old Salem ” by Maya -
They were the real witches of Old Salem. Thousands of innocent girls had been burned, drowned, or stoned in their place, accused of being possessed by the devil. All the while, the guilty hid in plain sight. As carefree children, giggling and skipping wherever they went. Only one night a year could they drop the facade and assume their cursed identity. This afternoon, the shining smile on ...
“The Winning Coven” by ✯𝐋𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐚 𝐋𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫✯
The Winning Coven By: Haripriya "Every Halloween night, the chosen witches' coven meets up, and attempts to connect with the ancient ancestors of the witching families, and gets to make one wish, a thoughtful and wise one, that will affect the entire witching generations past them. But do be warned, for if you make a cruel, selfish one, it will affect not just the other witches, but the witches of the coven too."They heard, as their potions teacher, Ms. Moon, read the following guidelines. The...
“Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet!” by Raquel Rodriguez
The wind howled like a banshee, cutting through the silence of the black sky like a scissor.Boys and girls - even parents - of all sizes flooded the decorated streets.The witches in the house had scared many trick-or-treaters away with their 'creepiness,' blood, and pranks, so they were bored out of their minds now, needing something to do.“Alright, let the-” Amany said, waving a stick in the air and kicking her chunky black wedge heels off. She was forced to the side by an elbow, and a girl who was smiling from ear-t...
“Aryzath and the Witches” by <inactive> .
Author’s note- I wrote this for a Literature assignment, and the prompt matched, so I figured, why not put it on Reedsy? But I have to give a head’s up to y’all. We’re covering The Lady of Shalott (Alfred Lord Tennyson) in Lit and the assignment was to write a story on what Lancelot would do after the Lady’s death (spoiler of the poem) and how he would find more about her. I do not own any of the characters, just the storyline. My parents were lost as to who these characters were, so have a lis...
“The cut that always bleeds” by Ari Berri
WARNING: THERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF BLOOD, AND SOME SELF-HARMING. IF YOU AREN'T COMFORTABLE WITH THAT, PLEASE DON'T READ IT. IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE, KEEP GOING! Jake cursed under his breath. His left arm had started bleeding. He was at a Halloween party for witches and wizards. His older brother, Micheal, had disappeared with his friends. That was a relief. His parents were talking with their friends...
“The Malicious Spirit of Hallows Eve” by Yolanda Wu
First, it was the witch with the crimson cloak. She pulled her hood back to reveal a mane of black hair; tight curls frizzed from the drizzling of rain. Eyelids lined with a thin stroke of red.Jenetta Locknae.Fashioned the name Red Spider.Then, it was the witch with the dark talons. She tapped them against the table impatiently. Her small mouth twisted and pointy like a beak. Eyes beady with the keenest of sight.Descine Trimary.Known as The Ominous One.Then, it was the witch with the golden neckla...

Ideal timing for this interruption is during the Q&A portion of Sister Black-Eyed Susan’s keynote address.)(Notice the gaggle of witches stuffing their guts with dessert, complacent, barely paying attention.

“The Legend of the Potomac Witches” by Kristin Neubauer
I scribble this statement with a trembling hand. My heart still pounds fiercely, though the horror I am about to relate is but two hours past. I have been taking brandy since I arrived at my home, but my nerves are yet unsettled. To he who holds this account, I implore you to read carefully and beware the great Patowmac River.My story begins on this last night of October, just after the clock in the city square had struck 11. My brother John had paused in his travels from Pennsylvania colony to spend three days with me b...
“Obedient to Impulsive” by Natalie Dafoe
My hands were turning white, I thought, pausing to look at them. Did Ruby curse me as she threatened? Was I gripping my spellbook too tight? Or was it simply the full moon casting a colourful illusion overtop of my skin. Sending my already-pale skin into an icy blue, highlighting how I wasn’t truly human.“Admiring your hand, are you Evanora?” I jumped at Nyx’s voice, shattering the silence in my room. “I told you to call me Nova,” I spoke through gritted teeth, not bothering to turn around. Her hea...
“Sisters” by Lani Lane
Amethyst almost jingled as she walked down the street. She was adorned in mounds of gemstone jewelry that clanged with every step: necklaces of quartz as clear as the night sky, aventurine bracelets carrying hundreds of charms, huge rings of tiger eye wrapped around every finger. It was a wonder she managed not to fall over with all the extra weight. She hurried past giggling children and their parents, ignoring their curious glances, and stepped into the forest at the end of the neighborhood. The trees stood so clo...
