Jack inhaled the fresh air. It was good to be home. Valkyrie gazed in awe. "Wow." she breathed, "I wish we had hills like that in Dublin." Jack laughed, "Ya that's my thinking place. Ready to take a look at the town?" "Hell Ya!" she was all excited now. Jack smiled. They had never before let a human into Halloween Town but Jack felt that he could trust her.
Jack went to open the cemetary gates. He pulled once on the handle. It didn't open. It's locked? But it's never locked, Jack thought. "This is odd." Valkyrie went to his side, "Can't open it?" "It's supposed to be
open." He shook his head, "They knew I was coming back." "Can we climb over?" Jack shook his head again. "Can you call somebody?" Jack peered through the iron bars, "I can't see anyone." "You guys don't use phones?" Jack slowly turned to her, "We all live next to each other. It's a small town." Valkyie giggled, "I guess so."
Jack slipped off his jacket to reveal his pin striped suit. "Can we please try my climbing over idea?" Valkyie asked. Just then they heard a graon from behind them. Jack turned around to see the ground lift up and crumble. A skeleton hand broke through the thick dirt along with plenty others behind it. "What's this?" The heads of these undead figures began to pull themselfs through. "Zombies....?" asked Valkyrie nervously. Jack put himself between her and the groaning zombies. "Melt the lock!" Jack ordered. Valkyrie whired around and clicked her fingers.
Jack once again stood in his stance with his soul robber in hand. The zombie in front was now completly uncovered. It bent down and grabbed a root from one of the headstones. The zombie pulled upward revealing a long thin saber. The others followed by example. "Oh crap..." Jack mumbled. The lead zombie roared and sprinted toward him. Jack sidestepped as the saber nearly missed him. "Soul Robber!" The green goo wrapped around its wrist and Jack pulled back, throwing its hand across the graveyard.
Another zombie attacked him from behind knocking him foward. He swung his arm around, his soul ribber colliding with one or two zombie heads. Jack rolled to his right to dodge being sliced. He got himself back to his feet but just at the moment a zombie saber punctured his center rib cage. Shock was clear on his face. "Jack!" Valkyrie screamed. Jack fell to his knees. Then someone was there.
A woman grasped the saber in his chest and pulled it out. Twirling it in her fingers before thrusting it into the heart of another zombie. She pulled out a sword attached to her waist and began weaving her way through the undead figures. Jack boney fingers found themselfs covering the whole in his chest. Then he felt hands on his arms. "Get up! Come on, get up!" pleaded Valkyrie, pulling him with all her strength. Jack staggered to his feet letting Valkyrie lead him through the now open gate.
"Which ones your house?" asked the woman appearing by his side. Jack pointed a weak finger, "That one." Then all the world seemed to disappear into a shroud of darkness.
