[writing] Exquisite Corpse for Halloween

Let's play a Halloween writing game. I'm going to provide a brief story starter below. Add a sentence or a paragraph in comments, hopefully building on prior comments for a tiny bit of continuity. (Which is, strictly speaking, not an exquisite corpse exercise, I know. Maybe this is more of an exquisite warm body.) I'll try to edit them together and make us a story. Just for fun, just for fun.

The Bone Witch's front yard was something between a horror and wonder, depending on the hour of the day and the depth of the sin you'd brought up to her cabin with you. Eyes glistened from among the leaves where no animal dared tread, while noisesome little teethy things strained sharp-edge runners past the rusted barbed wire to pluck at your ankles. Samhain was no time to be up on her mountain.
