Preston, Jared, Reggie, and Dale thought they’d be the first to successfully pull a prank on their math teacher, Mr. Washington. But when Mr. Washington catches them in the act, he runs down his front porch, takes a terrible tumble upon his front walk, and doesn’t get up. The boys soon discover their Halloween prank won’t be unraveling as planned.
To find out what happens to Mr. Washington and the boys, read “Over My Dead Body,” my short story found in both the Peoria and Bloomington editions of the free periodical, News and Views for the Young at Heart.
