There was a moment when all Alice could do was stare. As it was Halloween she’d made sure she was on the reception desk, which gave the normal receptionists an unexpected night off, just in case someone turned up she didn’t want in the House. Halloween brought out all the creepiest vampires. What she hadn’t expected was a group of children walking though the door. As a general rule most children in the local area avoided the Donor House. She couldn’t help smiling at them when she realised they were all dressed in costumes, and that meant they were obviously out trick-or-treating.
