My Nightmare Before Christmas Part 16" He knew me, Sally! I don't know how, but that boy knew me!" I poured out my excitement to Sally after Halloween night ended. Jack was too busy with the celebration parade, as was everyone but the two of us.
" Perhaps he knew you from when you were living." she suggested.
" Maybe, but he called me 'Daffodil'. My name isn't Daffodil. It's Medea. He had to be mistaken. Oh Sally, I have so many questions for that boy!"
" I don't think there's any way for them to be answered, though."
" What if I go see him?"
" You can't go right now!"
" I know, but... in time. A time when everyone is happy, when he'll be ready for anything to happen. A time like... Christmas!"
" I'll see him at Christmas! Jack told me everything about it! That boy will be so happy to see me, and I'll learn everything about my past! What my life was like, what his is like, how our possible friendship was!"
" I can't let you do that, Medea! I don't want you getting hurt!"
" But Sally-"
" Jack thinks of you as a
My Nightmare Before Christmas Part 15Throughout the rest of October, I was working on my scare routine. It was hard to come up with at first, me not looking very frightening naturally, but then the Clown with the Tear-Away Face's make-up caught me eye. If I added some black rings around my eyes, darken my lips and paled my face, I looked like a creepy doll.
" Not bad! Not bad at all!" Jack complemented.
" Thanks. Can I ask you something real quick?"
" Sure. What's on your mind?"
" Can I just like... hang around you when Halloween comes? Just to get into the swing of things again?"
" Of course! I wouldn't mind at all!" Jack always knows how to make me smile. Strange how my king would treat me like a little sister. Doesn't seem very kingly to me.
Halloween night finally came. Jack would terrify the older kids like a pro while I just jumped out of bushes to scare 6 year olds. Occasionally, their parent would yell at me for doing so, then I would rip off my bone arm and send them running. That was the best part. Though, one p
My Nightmare Before Christmas Part 14Medea's POV
I paced for what seemed like eons outside the Christmas door, whatever Christmas was. Jack finally stepped out with a relieved expression on his face.
" Alright, what 'accident' did you mention to that fellow in red?" I asked him instantly.
" Medea I-"
" And HOW on EARTH do you two know each other?"
" Would you allow me to explain?"
" I wish you would!"
" Last year I stumbled upon the door on a walk and I felt so... alive after I went there. And I had the crazy idea to make this holiday my own."
" How'd THAT go?"
" Horrid. I almost lost my afterlife. Sandy almost lost his life."
" Geez. That's awful."
" But it's behind us. Now, I need you to do me a favor. Stop by the witchs' shop and pick something up for me? I have to supervise the pumpkin carving."
" Of course."
" And Medea, what WERE you doing here exactly?"
" Oh, um, nothing."
" Ah, Medea!" The eldest witch sister exclaimed, " How may we be of service?"
" Jack sent me to pick something up."
" Oh yes! Sister! Fetch Jack
