Skulduggery looked over the seat at Valkyrie, "Can you look under your seat and pull out a black bag with a broken zipper." "Is it filled with stuff we can use to brake into the capital?" "Maybe." Valkyrie opened the door and lifted the seat. Jack watched as she pulled out the bag. "Man this is heavy." she said. "Just put it to the side for now." said Skulduggery waving his hand, "Are you hungry?" "I'm starving..." she grasped her stomach and reached out her hand as if dieing. He chuckled, "Alright. I'll drop you off for dinner and come pick you up later tonight." Valkyrie groaned, "Ok."
Jack waved as the left Valkyrie at her home. "So need to go back to Halloween Town for anything?" asked Skulduggery. "No nothing I can think of." His mind wandered towards Sally. "Well ok, if you say so." He turned down the street to an old cinamatic theater. Obviously it hadn't been used in years. "And we are going...?" started Jack. "We are going to visit a good friend of mine who might be able to help us with our problem." Jack stared out the window. It was getting dark and the street lamps had just turned on casting a yellow glare across the window.
Skulduggery parked a little bit aways from the theater and turned off the engine. "Follow me." he said and stepped out of the Bentley. Jack stepped out right after him. He followed as Skulduggery Pleasant walked up the front steps into the theater and into the main hall. The area was dimmly lit and the room was covered in a thick layer of dust.
Skulduggery walked up the steps to get on stage and went behind the curtain. As they aprouched the curtain parted and a screen lit up showing an old black and white film of a brick wall and an open door, thier shadows falling onto the image. They walked through the screen. Behind was another door leading to another set of stairs heading downward. They we comfronted by a man in a doctors suit. "Yes how may I help you?" The man had a weird complection. From his jaw downward he was covered in green scales. "We are here to see Kenspeckle Grouse." "Yes wll he's in the far room at the end." "Thank You."
Jack spotted a figure on the far side of the room hunched over a labortory table. He was a small old man with a mass of white hair. Jack thought how it would be if Dr. Finklestien had hair.
"Welcome Skulduggery Pleasant." he turned in his seat, "What did you bring for me this time?" "I you need to run some tests on my good friend here." "Oh. So what's your name lad?" "Jack Skellington." Jack spoke. Kenspeckle sort of made a scowl, "What is up with your names? Why can't it be anything simple like John or Mark?" Skulduggery shrugged, "To my inner creative side." Kenspeckle put on his glasses, "Let's have a look at you Jack..."
"Ah it's good to get out!" yelled Oogie. The three trick or treaters snickered. "Now let's get this party started. Where's the Bone Man?" "Still out." said Shock. "He shouldn't be back till later." said Lock. "Perfect." Oogie grinned, "Get me Doll Face and the Mayor and we'll see how they like it getting locked up in a hole." The three snickered. "Is there going to be torture?" asked Shock. "Oh but of course, cause I'm the Oogie Boogie Man! Muhahahaha!!!"
there shall be more!!!!!
