~ A Halloween Carol ~ Part 2


He awoke with a start. A tall, thin figure was sitting by the head of his bed staring at him. It had a green face and a pointy hat, and was carrying a staff. This ghost did not speak, it just stood there ominously. Tebearneezer did not want to go with this ghost. He sighed, resigned. "I suppose I must?" he asked inquiringly. The ghost slowly nodded, took his paw, and tapped it's staff against the floor. Tebearneezer squeezed his eyes closed as the room spun away. He wasn't sure he wanted to see what the future held.


He heard the sound of music, laughter and merry making of all kinds! He opened his eyes and saw a party. The annual Pumpkin Patch Ball in fact. People were having such a good time! Part of a conversation reached his ears as they watched the scene. "What a great party this is, everyone in town is here!" said the first voice. "Everyone except crabby old Tebearneezer Fudge!" said the other. "Eh who needs him to ruin the party!" replied the first voice. "I used to be his friend when we were cubs." said the second. A third voice chimed in "I wish he was the way he used to be! I miss the chap sometimes. I think about paying him a friendly visit once in a while. That is, if I didn't think he would surely send me away. I still feel bad for running away in fear and leaving him alone that Halloween day when we were cubs!"

Send them away thought Tebearneezer! He didn't think anyone ever wanted to visit him! He wouldn't send his old chums away! Especially now that he knew they were sorry they had left him alone in the square that day! A tear trickled down his fuzzy cheek. He had been missing out on so much all these years, just because of a silly mistake he had made when he was very young. A voice in the crowd excitedly yelled "Come on, it's time to bob for apples everyone!" Tebearneezer started off in the direction they were all going. He wanted to bob for apples! But the ghost took his paw. "No" he cried, "I want to stay and have fun!"

When he was back in his own quiet bed all alone he felt very sad. But then he realized it was only Halloween eve, and that the party wasn't until tomorrow...there was still time! He flew out of bed and started searching the closets and cupboards for things to make a splendid costume. He was going to the party! He would have friends!

The clock chimed midnight, as he heard it he paused his search. He ran to the window and threw open the shutters. He leaned out and yelled jovially "Happy Halloween to all, and to all...a frightfully spooktacular night!"


Tebearneezer went to the party the next night and had a wonderful time. He returned to the fortune tellers shop to thank her for what she had done, but found an empty building. He didn't dwell on it though, because he was having so much fun!

As the years went by he not only attended every party and made lots of friends, but he helped put up the decorations in the town square and passed out barrels and bushels of candy to everyone.

So dear friends, this concludes my tale. But if you should ever find yourself being visited by spectres in the night and feel afraid just remember...
