Alfred bought a pumpkin from a certain shop at the corner of the district.
Alfred has just left his office when his wife Sandra calls. She says: "Hi dear! Please don't be late, we have a Halloween party". Alfred: "I am coming soon my love." Sandra: "OK! Bye!" Alfred finds himself within an enclosed immense traffic. He is worried if he would not be able to arrive on time especially he has to buy many things for Halloween feast. It is like the masks with suitable costumes and one for his daughter Amanda. He has to buy candies and candles too. This is despite an immense pumpkin and other things. They have invited all their friends and families. The party will be fun. Finally he is at the second district close to his home. A beautiful shop is at the corner of the end of the district. They sell great and beautiful pumpkins. He will buy the most beautiful one. He enters the shop when a man disguised into a skeleton says: "Hello sir! Can I help you?" Alfred is terrified and says in trembling voice: "Hello! I have forgotten that it is Halloween, sarcastically. I want a great and beautiful pumpkin". The old man smirks and says: "Oh! Yes I have one pumpkin that suits your description. Here it is sir." Alfred: "Perfect! It is what I need exactly. How much does it cost?" The old man looks at him perplexed with great frightening eyes and responds. "It is for free sir". The smirk is still carved on his face. Alfred leaves but he still bears the man image in his spirit. He seems scary for unknown reason. Suddenly the pumpkin spontaneously lightens. Alfred is overwhelmed and looks forward to reach home. Sandra notices Alfred who has arrived, he is completely flabbergasted: "What's the matter? You look like you have seen a ghost".
