Main Street was like a ghost town, except for one lit storefront. John and Rose were making their way to that store. Music was piped into the speakers on every street corner. “This is Halloween” was playing as they walked down the street.
“Great, that song is going to be stuck in my head all night,” Rose commented.
“Don’t worry. I’m sure there will be plenty of songs to get stuck in your head at this party,” John replied.
“Are you sure about this? There aren’t even any cars in the street,” Rose mentioned as she looked around and noticed that there really weren’t ANY cars on the street.
“I’m positive,” John said. “This is the place.” He knocked three times on the door of the lit storefront. The door creaked open and they made their way inside.
“Everyone hail the Pumpkin King!” someone yelled in the crowd.
“Hail Pumpkin King!” everyone screamed.
Rose awoke with a blazing headache. It took her a moment to realize where she was. She looked around and recognized her own bedroom, but something was wrong. She couldn’t remember how she got there or what she was doing before she went sleep. Had she been drinking? Could she have passed out? Who was she with? Where did she go?
She looked down and realized she was dressed in her pajamas. She got up and looked in her mirror. She wasn’t wearing any makeup. What day was it?
She quickly turned on her computer to check the date. October 31, 2013 and it was almost 8:00p.m. She’d better hurry. John was supposed to pick her up and take her to the Halloween party in just a few minutes.
“This is Halloween, this is Halloween,” she started singing to herself as she got ready.
