Halloween in the Hole 
by Abi Ketner & Missy Kalicicki

You’d think in a place like the Hole, Halloween would be a no-brainer, right? I mean lets face it, the Hole could be Halloween every night. There is no shortage of thugs, horrors, and more tricks than treats. But we forget something important: the Commander.

The Commander isn’t a fan of Halloween. He says it promotes the seven deadly sins, especially gluttony and lust, and forbids anyone to celebrate it. And since he’s the biggest monster we know, why dress up and pretend to be him?

Now, the parents old enough to remember the excitement of Halloween find other ways to celebrate. In hushed tones, they sit around fires they’ve build to keep warm, regaling their children with their favorite tales. Huddled close together, they watch as their whispered words light up the eyes of the children they hope will carry on their traditions.

But the difference in many of these stories is the heroes usually win over the terrible demons. The good always triumphs over the evil, and the children are left desiring the hero, the one who slays monsters like the Commander, climbs walls like the Hole, and brings joy to everyone.

While in the Hole, the monster still lives on, in their hearts, they’re free. Yes, Halloween in the Hole is a night of hope, not a night of fear, for one day they hope to rise against the monster who keeps them caged there. That one day the monster will be defeated and somehow their society can be saved.

Yes, the Commander has more than one reason to fear Halloween in the Hole.

Fifty years ago The Commander came into power and murdered all who opposed him. In his warped mind, the seven deadly sins were the downfall of society.

To punish the guilty, he created the Hole, a place where sinners are branded according to their sins. Sinners are forced to live a less than human existence in deplorable conditions, under the watchful eye of guards who are ready to kill anyone who steps out of line.

Now, LUST wraps around my neck like thick, blue fingers, threatening to choke the life out of me. I’ve been accused of a crime I didn’t commit, and the Hole is my new home.

Constant darkness.

Brutal and savage violence.

Excruciating pain.

Every day is a fight for survival.

But I won’t let them win. I will not die in the Hole.

I am more than my brand. I’m a fighter. My name is Lexi Hamilton, and this is my story.
