Halloween was ten days away and Jay was running out of time.
Passing the Warringtons’ house, he saw it was surrounded by pumpkins.
Jay pulled his car over, saw no one was about then darted out to take a huge pumpkin.
Shoving it into the back of the car, he drove off again.
First place in the pumpkin carving contest here I come, Jay thought.
A black cat shot out on to the road, Jay swerved to avoid it but hit a lamp post instead.
Jay never made it to the pumpkin carving contest after all.
