I think I’m gonna just stay away from the edge of the forest. The 13 Stories Til Halloween final Halloween short story is Attack of the Living Gnomes by another talented, young, debut author, Molly Mac, and author Elysabeth Williams!
Deep inside an overgrown forest, far away from people, lived eight gnomes. Their home was normal enough – a red and white polka dotted mushroom-esque style, complete with a lazy, spiraling flume of fireplace smoke wafting from the chimney. The candle lights inside cast a warm, golden inviting glow that simply whispered homelike comfort. Somehow all eight gnomes were comfortable living together under one roof instead of spread out. They were solitary creatures, never having been to the ends of their forest.
