Reader who is a Talon agent and she gives Team Talon candy because Halloween is coming , and Team Talon want to thanks her by a surprise party ? Thank you:)
I wrote this one as well yesterday and then it got deleted by accident. Ugh.
You frown as you search up and down the halls of the Talon base, wondering why it was that you couldn’t seem to find anyone. It had been about two hours since you’d last seen anyone, and already you’d checked half the base.
The hangar, the trainee lockers, the practice room, the common area…all of it had been as empty as the halls. Even the control center had been empty, the room dark except for the faint flickering of screens that were on sleep. You would have thought to go maybe try to find Reaper but honestly, you were too scared to find him.
Continuing down the halls, you reached down into your pumpkin head basket that held little wrapped candies. It was almost Halloween and you’d bought candy in bulk in order to share with your base. Though Talon wasn’t one to really celebrate holidays, you couldn’t help wanting to share a bit of holiday cheer with everyone.
Yet now…where were they all?
Popping the candy into your mouth, you headed for the kitchen. Surely there would at least be a cook in there. There was always a cook up and preparing food for the 250 or so Talon members at this base.
Having to go through the dining room to get there, you paused as you neared it. There was a sign on the door that read ‘Enter if You Dare’.
Surprised, you frowned. Well, you were sure as hell going to dare! You needed to find people, for gods sake! where could everyone have GONE?
Stepping inside, it took you a moment as the lights suddenly came on and a loud roar filled the room. Words wouldn’t come to your lips as you stared at the scene before you. The room had hundreds…maybe even 250 worth of Talon members in there, grinning ear from ear while cheering …at her?
Carved pumpkins lined the walls, bats and cobwebs on the walls. Four 15 foot tables were covered in food and punch, and everyone seemed to be dressed up in some costume or other. It kind of stunned you, honestly. You hadn’t thought Talon was capable of celebrating…well, anything.
“Surprise!” called one of the members, one of your closest friends. He hurried over, wearing a terrible Dracula costume and carrying a cup of punch in one hand as he grinned. “Did we get you?”
“Um…yes. I…I don’t understand. You guys are having a party?” you asked and hesitated. “Without me?”
“No no!” said one of the other members, dressed as a little fairy. She hurried over, hugging your shoulders. “The party is FOR you!”
For a moment you’d thought you’d heard wrong. “For me?” you asked uncertainly as you looked between them.
“Yes! It was so nice of you to hand out candy, and everyone just kind of started getting in the Halloween spirit…we managed to get permission from head quarters to take a break for a few hours and they agreed!” gushed the fairy Talon member, beaming enthusiastically at you both.
The other member looked at you sheepishly. “So….since a lot of it was your help just getting into the spirit….everyone decided to dedicate it to you,” he said lightly.
You couldn’t believe your team would do something so…uncharacteristically nice! A smile rose on your face and you couldn’t help hugging them both tightly. “Thank you guys so much!” you gasped, and grinned as someone turned on some spooky tunes.
“I’ll beat you to the dance floor!” you challenged, and ran off with the two in tow. Talon ended up having a pretty sweet Halloween this year.
