Halloween is coming. Along with candy and costumes, tales of terror are this holiday's trademark, as this boy can surely tell you.

This kid is listening intently to a scary story his mother is reading. Heck, the book she's reading is even called "Scary Stories," so you know that, at the very least, it's going to cause some sleepless nights.

When the mom gets to a part involving a scream, it terrifies the boy to his core, causing him to scream. It clearly caught him off-guard and scared him, yet it's also delightfully adorable at the same time. That is quite the combo.

And while he may have been scared, he turns down his mother's offer to stop reading because he is one tough kid. Little boy 1, Halloween 0.
