Chapter 3: Skeleton Manor
Jack walk with the young boy back to his manor. Along the way Jack ask the boy many questions to try to get his memory back. But so far no luck.
"Now are you sure you can't recall anything? Not even your name?"
The boy thought as hard as he could. Still, he can't remeber a thing. "Nope, I got nothing."
Jack smile and place a hand on his shoulder. "That's alright. I'm sure you'll get your memory back soon."
The boy nodded. "I hope so."
Near by the two same shadows from before were keeping a close eye on Jack. But mostly they were keeping a close eye on the boy. The first shadow look like a witch with a purple dress and a tall witch hat. She narrow her eyes and smirk.
"There he is. And he's still with Jack."
The second shadow look like a skeleton but not like Jack. He stood next to the witch girl. and smirk as well. "So, what's the plan?"
The witch turn to her friend. "Well, first we should help him with his memory don't you think?"
The skeleton titled his head. "Why would we do that? Isn't it better if he doesn't remember?"
The witch pounded him almost knocking him out. "you idiot! If we can help him out, then we'll earn his trust."
The skeleton boy rub his head. "So?"
"So, that'll help us get one step closer to make him ours!"
"Oh, I get it."
"Good, now come on." She started to walk off.
The skeleton boy quickly follow her. "Where are we going?" he ask.
"If we're going to help him, we need to get him away from Jack first. And I think I have a plan."
"Welcome to Skeleton Manor!"
The boy look around amazed by all the things. "Wow! It's so big!"
Jack chuckled and smiled. "Thank you. Feel free to look around."
Just like that the boy ran off and started to explore the house. In the main room was a long couch, a coffee table, and a couple of chairs. The kitchen had a decent size fridge and a neat and tidy counter. Upstairs is where Jack did his studies. There were alot of beaker, tubes, even a giant chalkboard.
"This place is so cool!"
Jack walk behind him and place a hand on his shoulder. "I'm glad you like it here. Now let me show you your room."
The boy nodded and started to follow him. They reach a small room which had a small bed and a dresser.
"I hope this is good enough for you."
The boy smiled as he walk around the room. "Are you kidding?" This is just perfect!" He then walk over to the bed and layed down.
Jack light and close the door. "Well good night." He then turn off the light and close the door.
"Night." the boy called back. This is great. I think I'm going to enjoy living here.
He then yawn and fell asleep.
