Summary: Mulder, Scully, and Samantha find a haunted house. This was written for Believe the Truth's Halloween Three-fer Brevity Challenge. Challenge elements are listed at the end.

Mulder, Scully, and Samantha were trick-or-treating in Alexandria. They came to a house that appeared to be run down. There were stories dating from colonial times about haunted houses in the region. "Hey, Scully, do you believe in haunted houses?"

"No," said Scully. "I refuse to believe in those old stories."

"But you have heard about them. Right?"

"Fox, you know Dana doesn't believe in this stuff," said Samantha. His eight year old sister smiled at him. He had gotten back his sister, but she was still young.

"Just believe I don't believe it -- it doesn't mean it isn't true," said Scully.

"Do you want to treat-or-treat here?" Mulder asked his sister.

"No," said Samantha. "It looks scary. I have heard rumors about this house."

"I heard it's haunted by a poltergeist," said Mulder. "Apparently, the owner was attacked by an alien. It was really messy. To this day, the owner can be heard moaning."

"Mulder, are you sure you want to mention this to your sister?"

Mulder nodded. "She's heard enough of the X-Files cases that we've been on. What's one more?"

Scully shrugged. "All right. Don't be upset if she wakes up crying again."

"Let's go find some other house to trick-or-treat since Sam doesn't want to come to this one," said Mulder.

They all went to a different house to trick-or-treat.

Author's Notes: This was written for BTT's Halloween Three-fer Challenge. You needed three spooky elements and three characters for the story. My three Spooky Elements: a poltergeist, a haunted house and an alien. The three characters that I chose to be in this interesting story are: Mulder, Scully, and Samantha.
