Day 2 - The Pumpkin Exploded #100words #Drabbleweek

Day 2- The pumpkin exploded

She had never heard of a pumpkin exploding. 
How could a pumpkin explode? What could possibly make a pumpkin explode? Was it even possible for a pumpkin to explode? 
The Drabble Week Prompt had got her curiosity levels escalating. Before she could stop herself she found herself at the market, choosing the biggest pumpkin available. 
At home she carved out a hole on top of the pumpkin and scooped out the innards. She then placed a few candles inside and lit them, and plugged the top back on tight, and waited to see what happened.  
The pumpkin exploded! Or not?
