Sarah let's meet up tonight at Hallow's cemetery gates and look to see if anything lurks there late into the night under our Moon's light. We can look for the shadows of the dead as they mysteriously appear, acting nonchalantly, as if they were always there for anyone to see, whether it be during the day, or at night. Afterwards, we can hook up with the other children out to trick for them treats. It will be neat Sarah with you dressed as Rapunzel and me, dressed as your Prince, we're sure to convince all those we trick for to give us their best treats. Sarah I want to tell you something before we meet. Your love for me, which you so passionately display without shame, can never be beat by any kind of treat and it does not necessitate my performing tricks. You hold my heart Sarah and no trick, or treat will ever be as sweet! When we can carry no more treats Sarah and have played out our repertoire of tricks, we'll continue the nocturnal sojourn were on, all the while looking for shadows that creep up on us in the dark. The dark we know as night. The hoot of an Owl, along with the screams of its prey, is something we will never hear during the day, so we need to listen carefully for it Sarah as we make our way in the night. A night hopefully fraught with fright. Where are you now Jerry? I am on my way to the cemetery Sarah! Are you on your way Sarah? Please, don't delay, or lollygag while you're on your way. What? You can not make it tonight! Oh Sarah, I need you here with me tonight! Hold on Sarah. Sarah the night's sky just turned Red! It's as if an explosion occurred overhead. Now garish lights are flashing in and out of the trees Sarah, bathing them in Red while trailing wailing screams. It's like all Hell has broken out here tonight in our town of Hallow. Sarah there's a crowd gathering up ahead and I need to work my way through the crowd, so I can see what they see. Heads were beginning to bow as I slowly worked my way through the burgeoning crowd. People began to scream and I could see the horror in their eyes as I passed by. Eyes shedding tears as if they were being bled. Only a few feet more Sarah and I will be at the head of the crowd, then I can look around. Oh my God! Sarah it's you that they see, you laying on the ground bleeding profusely. This I did not want to see and me, I am laying over there next to that tree, my flesh on fire! How can this be, me, looking at me! How can this be? Sarah you have played a trick on me! This is why you could not be here with me tonight. Well, you certainly know how to give a man a fright Sarah and that is what you have given me tonight! I guess I know where we will next meet Sarah, at the gates of Hallow's cemetery. Won't that be a treat!
