A bitterly cold wind unleashes its fury on those who venture outside. But it doesn’t deter Alessandro this Halloween. His tall frame is protected by a black wool cloak.
Shrouded in darkness, he is pleasantly surprised when he encounters a throng of costumed revelers visiting his cemetery. The exuberant adults compliment him on his unique appearance and offer him a treat from their bag of goodies.
“Help yourself,” they say.
Before he indulges in a guilty pleasure, Alessandro licks his sultry lips in gleeful anticipation. Then his bloodshot eyes adopt a steely glint as he proceeds on to his main course.
