It's almost that time of year again!

Your challenge:

Your challenge for Halloween is to write us a spooky tale about child or teen trick or treaters being the victims of a trick rather than a treat - such as pranks, a visit to the wrong house, or assorted things that go bump in the night and so on - and *something* goes wrong while out begging for candy.

Include your favorite X-Files character(s) and create a spooky atmosphere for both your hapless trick or treaters and your readers.

* Don't forget that this challenge can be used for Project Midnight, too.
