On a Halloween night something magical happens to three adolescent boys and one old man that changes their lives.
This touching short story set on a Halloween night embraces nostalgia for a simpler time when boys played make-believe and imagined pirates, treasure, and secret codes.
Three adolescent boys, Willie, Matt and Jaxon have a hard time getting candy out of old Mr. Graham Johnson when they trick-or-treat his home. During their attempt to "trick" him something unexpected happens and all three are transported to another time and place when they are all at the magical age of 10.
I wrote this story as a Halloween tale, but it turned into a trip down memory lane. Jolly Rogers will cause you to remember, or long for, a simpler time when children lived happier, less complicated lives.
