My Nightmare Before Christmas Part 9Jack's POV
I believe Medea fell for my little fib, and although she wasn't hurt by it, I felt terrible. Me, Jack Skellington, telling a lie is as likely as a snowflake in a wildfire. Everyone knew me for my honesty. But it had to be done, for my people, for Medea.
Zero circled around my feet, then flew to the window.
" No Zero, you can't go out yet." I said.
" I think he wants you to give me a tour or something." Medea suggested. Zero yipped happily. I wasn't so sure about it. How would everyone react to her?
Jack seemed skeptic about showing me around Halloweentown. I pondered the thought at first, then it hit me.
" Jack... If you're worried about how everyone will react to me, I think they'll understand that I didn't cause the incident."
" I know, but... "
" You're concerned that they won't let the fact that you were almost gone go."
" ... Yes."
" I don't care what they think. I can take it."
Bursting out the door, I got Medea's tour started. Master Jack tried to av
My Nightmare Before Christmas Part 8My POV
After Jack left, I decided to explore the house. Cobwebs on every corner, all the colors were muted, the furniture seemed very old. Yes, this was definitely the king of Halloween's manor. One room had some sort of appeal to me. The furniture seemed a bit newer and a large window allowed me to see my home. But something about all of this seemed... off. I believed Jack, he didn't seem like the lying type, but I felt like I was an outcast here.
" But how will the town react, Jack?" The Mayor questioned. Honestly, sometimes he worries a bit too much about things.
" Relax. As long as Medea doesn't know that she used to be mortal, everything will go smoothly."
" How smooth?"
" As smooth as silk on the vampires' cloaks."
" Oh fine, I believe you."
Jack left me in charge of Zero while he went to make an announcement to the town. He said it was just on the beast that attacked everyone and how they needed to help me along, so I agreed to stay. Me and Zero played Hide n'
My Nightmare Before Christmas Part 7My POV
" I live here? Where's my house?" I asked.
" Yeah, um, about that..." Jack started, as if saying something he didn't want to.
" The beast wrecked it, didn't it?"
" Afraid so. But you are welcome to stay in my manor, if you wish."
" I'd like that, Jack, right? Thank you for your kindness."
" It is my job as a king to be kind. Call if you need something." He started into the next room.
" What was my name?"
" ... Medea."
I hated to lie, but for everyone's sake, it needed to be done. The Mayor had a bad expression on his face.
" Don't give me that look." I mumbled.
" Have you lost your head?"
" No, but I can misplace it."
" I'm not joking Jack. We can't have a mortal here!"
" Medea isn't a mortal anymore, you know that as well as me and Zero."
" I just don't like that you put your life on the line like that! Just to help her!"
" I had to."
" Why? Why would you do that?"
" Because nobody did it for me."
My Nightmare Before Christmas Part 6My POV
Days have past when I woke up from the incident. I had no clue what happened, where I was, even who I was.
" Come now, Mayor. It's not big deal! I'm alright!" a male voice said.
" But you could've been gone forever! She has to pay for her misdeed!" Another one replied.
" What misdeed? It wasn't her fault that beast attacked her! Did you see the teeth marks on her arm?"
" My arm?" I wondered. I looked at one of my arms, perfectly normal. I looked at the other...
" EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!" I shrieked. My arm was nothing but bone!
" What? What happened?" A tall man burst in, followed by a short man. I wanted to scream again, but something told me I shouldn't. The tall man came to me.
" Are you alright?"
" Y-yes. Wh-who are y-you?"
" Jack. Jack Skellington."
" Where am I?"
" My house. You don't need to be scared, it's gone"
" What's gone?"
" The beast. See, what happened was that a beast got loose from it's cage and... well... It attacked you."
" And that's why my arm is all
My Nightmare Before Christmas Part 5Sally's POV
I paced on top of the hill, waiting for Jack. He hadn't been gone long, but I felt as if something was terrible happened. My premonitions are usually correct, so I was right to be concerned. Turns out it was correct, Zero howled again.
I dashed into town and desperately looked for the mayor. Almost crashing into Harlequin Demon and Melting Man, I found him catching snowflakes with his tongue.
" Mayor! It's Jack, I fear he is in trouble!"
" Calm down, Miss. Nothing could possibly go wrong now!"
" But I have a gut feeling, and I heard Zero howling!" That must've sealed the deal, his face changed.
" WH-WHAT! Quick! To the car!"
I've never felt so weak before in my entire afterlife. Zero, carrying the girl, supported my body as we walked slowly out of the graveyard. My legs dragged along the snow, my eyes drooped more and more. Though through the growing blackness, I saw the mayor's car over the hill. That's when I gave in. I collapsed limply in the snow.
