A pumpkin was set on the window pane. It had a Jack Skellington’s face on it. The person who put it down was Erin. She has a witch hat and a grey shirt with a cat on a pumpkin, two skeletons, stars and bats saying Spook-Tacular HALLOWEEN CARNIVAL Frightday October 31 Dusk until Midnight over black pants, a black ribbon on left wrist, and black/white shoes. Erin title her hat a bit, to reveal that her pink streak turn green.
“Come on guys, it‘s time for Halloween!” Erin told her charas, Chestnut, Marshmallow, and Lavada.
“I…I don‘t know.” Marshmallow shivered. “It‘s scary…”
“Come on, it‘s the best holiday.” Erin said. “Candy, scary stuff like ghosts and vampires, and other surprises.”
Marshmallow and Chika screamed and hugs each other.
“I just remembered I have to go back to the Sweets Kingdom to do a test.” Marshmallow said.
“Yeah right?” Erin laughed thinking Marshmallow’s making an excuse.
“No really.” Marshmallow said. “If I don‘t pass it I can‘t be your partner.”
“Oh, okay. Good luck.” Erin shrugged. “But be safe though.”
Marshmallow nodded and flew off out of the room. Erin grabs her Monster High bag, her charas, Lavada, and Chestnut went inside the bag, and walks out of the dorm.
“Erin, don‘t tell us you‘re going trick-or-treating?” Aquapearl asked.
“First of all, I‘m too old and second of all, no.” Erin explained. “I‘ve only been trick-or-treating three times as a kid.”
“Why?” Himeko, Beauty, Aquapearl, Usapyon, and Belle asked.
“Her parents didn‘t trust people!” Chika, Kyoko, Amai, Melody, Trixie, Toony, and Chestnut answered.
Erin walks by the garden of the school. She stops and takes a look at her list.
“Watch horror movies all month long, check. Make a list of candy from the Great Pumpkin and Halloween Town, check. Visit the Hotel, check. Have the Spooky Sisters to sing,”
That’s when three sisters pop out one at a time. The first sister has black hair with dark blue shades in a ponytail with spiky bangs on her right eye, brown eyes, and wears a dark blue Victorian styled clothes. The middle sister has blonde hair, dark blue eyes, and wears dark red Victorian styled clothes. The last sister has red hair in pigtails, green eyes, and wears dark green Victorian styled clothes.
“Shayde, Impervia, and Zaphara! The Spooky Sisters!”
All three of them: HERE!
“Check!” Erin smiled. “Have the Phantomen to sing.”
That’s when four boys with blackish brown hair, black eyes, and wear scary-looking, black-and-purple barber outfits with black dancing canes and light brown hats with black straps.
Hello to you Miss Er-IN!
One deep voice
(You Miss Er-IN)
The group disappeared after that.
“Check!” Erin smiled again. “Let‘s see… Go to the Great Pumpkin spot and go to Halloween Town after that.” Erin sighed. “Nothing else? He doesn‘t get here until the Harvest Moon at nine o‘clock and it‘s only three.”
“So what do we do while we wait?” Kyoko asked.
“I dunno!” Erin shrugged.
Erin then noticed Dori, C.J., Stevie, Pepper, Diamond, Mimi, Sadie, Mara, and Skye gathered to Ashley. Skullgal, Alyssa, and Jessica walks over to them too. Alyssa’s dressed up as Rapunzel, SG’s dressed up as Elvira, Jessica‘s dressed up as Princess Twilight Sparkle, C.J.’s dressed up as a Red Power Ranger while she has the helmet in her hand, Diamond’s dressed up as a grey mouse with a purple dress, Mimi and Sadie are both dressed up as cheerleaders, Mara’s dressed up Dorothy Gale, Skye’s dressed as a monkey, and Pepper‘s dressed as Vanellope von Schweetz. Dori just has a tiara on her head with octagon gems on them, a wand, and wings and Stevie‘s just wearing a black torn dress, grey leggings, and black boots. Curious, Erin walks over to the group.
“…And then I was the one who stop it!” Ashley boasted.
Erin turns and saw Ashley dressed up as Barbie. Erin screams at Ashley which surprises everyone.
“What?!” Ashley asked.
“What a scary mask, Ashley!” Erin gasp.
“I‘m not wearing a mask!” Ashley yelled.
She then spoke, “Oh wait, that‘s your face.”
Everyone even the Shugo Charas, Chestnut, Starla, and the fairy assistances laughed at that. Ashley growls in anger and blushed.
“Okay, what are you talking about Ashley?” Erin half-laugh.
“Ashley‘s talking about the legend of a half vampire, half boogeyman of Hopetopia.” Diamond explained.
“Yes, which I defeated.” Ashley said. She held her hand near her face and laugh boastfully.
Everyone stare blankly at Ashley except Diamond. Erin snickered until she started laughing. Everyone turn to the laughing Erin.
“Okay, I‘ve heard of vampires but not a half vampire half boogeyman. There‘s no such thing as the boogeyman.” Erin chuckled.
“Is that so?” Ashley asked.
“Erin, Oogie Boogey is the sorta a Boogeyman and you believe in him.” SG pointed out.
“Yes I do, but I mean the one who comes out the closets or under the beds.” Erin explained. “Parents just made him up so bad kids don‘t stay up too late.”
“Well, this one is way eviler!” Ashley explained.
“Is eviler a word?” Diamond asked.
Pepper looks up in the dictionary and reads through it. “Yes.”
“Anyway, I face the beast before!” Ashley spoke.
“Sure yah did.” Stevie said sarcastically.
“Oh yeah Miss Not wearing a costume?” Ashley asked.
“I am wearing a costume. I‘m dressed as “WAY better then Barbie” costume.” said Stevie.
“Whatever! As I said, I faced the beast once. It was when me and mom were in the forest, ALL alone!” Ashley explained in a scary voice but boastfully. “We were scared of the icky, yucky stuff there! That‘s when HE APPEARED! He came to us with our worst fears… UGLINESS!”
Erin, Jessica, SG, C.J., Stevie, and Pepper rolled their eyes. Mimi and Sadie were hugging each other, shivering in fear while Dori, Diamond, Mara, and Alyssa just listen with fear. Sky was just excited to hear the story.
“After he made us helpless under our own fears…. The next thing he did… HE TRY TO BITE US ’TILL WE WERE DRY AS UGLY CORN HUSK!”
Alyssa, Mimi, Sadie, Dori, Diamond, and Mara scream in fear and hides behind Erin, Jessica, SG, C.J., Stevie, and Pepper.
“But we escape with my courage. I beat up the monster until he was scared away. Well?” Ashley asked.
“Yyyy-eah if I actually believe in that story.” Erin spoke.
“You don‘t believe me?!” Ashley asked.
“I do!” Diamond answered.
“I would believe that if zombies came out of the ground. AND I also would believe it if Dracula fall out of the sky and plummet me into the ground.” Erin explained.
“Then you go over and see for yourself.” Ashley said.
“How? We don‘t know about him or where he lives?” SG explained.
“If you ever heard of the legend and if you have lived in Hopetopia and it‘s school longer then anybody, you would know.” Dori explained.
“The legend said he lives on that island in the middle of Hoptopia‘s lake.” C.J. explained, pointing at the lake far from the schools.
“I‘ll take a look.” Alyssa said, taking a telescope out and looks through it. She sees an island in the middle of the lake. “There is an island in the middle of the lake. It‘s too beautiful to be spooky.”
“Wait until it gets dark under the Harvest moon.” Ashley chuckled. “Now will you excuse me, the school‘s Halloween Party is starting. See you later.”
Alyssa glares at Ashley who walks off. Alyssa sticks her tongue at her.
“Come on, I‘m going trick-or-treating with my sisters.” Mara said. “Skye‘s coming too.”
“Skye aren‘t you too old for trick-or-treating?” C.J. asked.
“You‘re never too old for trick-or-treating.” Skye said, walking off. “See yah!”
Mara runs after Skye before they joined hands. Mimi, Sadie, and Jessica left for a Halloween Party at the school. More curious, Erin walks off to go to the island. Dori, C.J., Stevie, Pepper, Diamond, Skullgal, and Alyssa noticed Erin’s leaving. Alyssa runs to Erin in front of her.
“Where are you going?” Alyssa asked, walking backwards but in front of Erin.
“To that island and investigate.” Erin answered.
“Are you outta your mind? It‘s almost the Harvest Moon.” Alyssa explained.
“Crazy, yes. Insane, no.” Erin replied.
“Are you sure? What about your Great Pumpkin meeting.”
“It‘s at 9 so I‘ll be done before then. In the meantime, if this whole vampire boogeyman whatever thing is real, you stay at the party.”
“Will you be okay out there, all alone?”
“Alyssa, I‘m not scared of anything! Except spiders, heights especially looking down, tornadoes, needles, and thunderstorms.”
“Well… okay… but if I get too worried, I‘m coming after you! Good luck!”
Alyssa runs pass Erin to the party. After Alyssa left, Dori, C.J., Stevie, Pepper, Diamond, and Skullgal catch up to Erin.
“Can we come?” SG asked.
“I‘m not sure…” Erin pondered.
“But I want to investigate myself since I like being a detective.” SG explained.
“Okay, but please be careful.” Erin instructed. “How about you guys?”
“I really want to see the legend is true, so yes.” Dori said, walking to Erin and SG.
“Stevie?” Erin asked.
“To fear or not to fear? That is the question. I suggest to investigate further information on the legend and prove it false for priorities.” Stevie explained.
The group was stunned by Stevie’s speech.
“I have no idea what she just said but I‘ll take that as a yes.” Erin said as Stevie came to her.
“I like to come yes.” C.J. spoke going to them.
“Pepper?” Erin asked.
“Since it is Halloween, I volunteer.” Pepper said, walking to them. “Besides this holiday more candy will be released a lot then usual back home.”
“What does that have anything to do with what we’re doing?” C.J. asked.
“I don‘t want to be involve with my mother‘s suggestion of giving out candy to strangers.” Pepper explained.
“Oh!” C.J. nodded.
Diamond just stood there until she walks off.
“Diamond, wanna join us?” Erin called.
Diamond stopped with her back turned. She turns back to them. She’s never asked to go with anyone else but Ashley before.
“Really? What about Ashley?” Diamond asked.
“Don‘t worry, you‘ll be fine without her.” Erin said. “Besides we like to get you know you better and we can be friends.”
Diamond scratches her head for an answer. “Okay!”
“Erin, why?!” Pepper asked.
“She‘s our enemy’s best friend!” C.J. whispered.
“Just because she is doesn‘t mean she‘s like her. This be a great opportunity to get to know her better. And I’m doing this to be nice to her.” Erin whispered back. She then spoke. “Come on, let‘s go!”
