~HALLOWEEN IS COMING
“M, really?” Evie giggled.
She held the jacket of a pinstripe suit out in front of her to display it for Mal, who simply kicked back on her pillow and shook her head.
“I’ve never heard of Jack Skellington,” she insisted.
“He’s the king of Halloween Town!”
“I’ve never heard of that, either.”
Now Evie shook her head with a laughing sigh, laying the jacket flat across her bed.
“I guess that makes sense. Halloween Town is so far from Auradon. It’s practically on the other side of the world,” she said.
“And you want me to go as King Skellington or whatever for Halloween?” Mal questioned.
“Well for one, it’s not quite so formal in Halloween Town, they just call him Jack. But yes, since you couldn’t decide on a Halloween costume, I thought this would be a good choice for you.”
Mal got up from her bed, crossing over to Evie’s to have a closer look at the suit jacket.
“So what are you going as?” she asked, holding the handmade jacket for herself to marvel at Evie’s talent.
“If you’ll go as Jack, I’ll go as Sally. She’s…like Jack’s royal councilor.”
Mal lifted an eyebrow at the way Evie briefly stumbled over that description, but paid it no mind. Having no other Halloween plans, she really didn’t have much thinking over to do.
“Okay. We’ll go as Jack and Sally,” she agreed.
“Really??” Evie’s eyes sparkled.
Mal caught sight of the glimmer and smiled.
“Yeah. Sounds fun.”
Evie lost herself for a second and clapped happily.
“I was hoping you’d say that! I kind of, sort of already started sewing Sally’s dress,” she shyly admitted.
Mal just laughed.
“Of course you did.”
