“Over My Dead Body” – October News and Views For the Young At Heart Short Story

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.
