My Nightmare Before Christmas Part 11Five Months Before Halloween
" The vampire's and werewolf's fangs are sharper than ever, most of the new bats are moving on to advanced flier status, the organs still need to be tuned, and the... Jack, are you even listening to me?" The Mayor questioned. My eyes fluttered open.
" Huh? Oh, I'm sorry, Mayor," I confessed, " I haven't been sleeping well lately."
" You said the same thing two months ago!"
" I'm sorry."
" Jack, what's gotten into you?"
" I keep having nightmares..."
" Nightmares? But you love nightmares!"
" But this one is terrifying... to me." I sat down on the fountain.
" Oh... what is it about?"
" When I crashed on Christmas Eve. I realized I made a terrible mistake, and... I realized all the pain I caused to the mortals... and my town... and M-"
" Oh Jack, I never knew it scared you so much. But it's over now. Don't worry." A new voice came into the conversation. I felt slightly more relaxed when I saw who it was. I got up and held her in my arms.
" Thank you
My Nightmare Before Christmas Part 10Medea's POV
Jack showed me the entire town of Halloween. It felt like the very heart and soul of the holiday, everything creepy and frightening. I thought I was right at home. But the townspeople didn't like that. I guess they were just mad about Jack risking his life for mine, that I should've been more careful. However, I couldn't let that get in the way of helping make Halloween.

" Well, what do you think?"
" ... This is one heck of a pumpkin patch!" Medea exclaimed. She was nervous, I could tell.
" Indeed! From what I recall, it's 50 acres."
" That's a lot of pumpkins. So much responsibility must go into this."
" Exactly. Which why I'm putting you in charge of the patch. You must water the pumpkins every other day until the ripen. When they ripen, send for the witches to charm them."
" What does the charm do?"
" It keeps the pumpkins fresh until No
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."
