My Nightmare Before Christmas Part 21Medea's POV
He was there one minute, and gone the next. Jack fled into the trees quick as a ghost. Police cars started to turn the corner of Elfman Court onto Burton Street. I hid in the bushes and waited for them to pass by. But they stopped right in front of Mortimer's house, the first car must've seen Jack.
" He went this way!" one of the cops said, heading into the woods. I peered out from the bushes to watch the men disappear. Mortimer appeared on his front porch.
" So... did he kidnap you?" he asked.
" No, and he didn't kill me either. The only crime he committed was an accident. Come on." I jumped out of the shrubs and we started to follow the trail of footprints.
I followed Daffodil into the woods. I still had questions I wanted answered; How are Daffodil and her skeleton friend walking but dead? Where has Daffodil been all this time? Those questions had to wait, the fate of a potential crisis rested on our shoulders... I think.
Thankfully, it had stopped snowing
My Nightmare Before Christmas Part 20Jack's POV
" I'm still not sure how you got into Halloween Town or how you died, but I do know why you're here today." I began to explain, Medea's eyebrow perked with interest.

" Well I gave some of mine to you. And I could've lost my afterlife because of it."
" Because there wasn't enough in your body."
" But why did you do it?"
" Because no one came to help me that night. My sleigh crashed and there was fire and an explosion, but none of my citizen came to see if I was okay."
" So you gave me an afterlife because of... empathy?"
" Yes. And the only reason I didn't tell was because I was afraid something like this would happen."
" Jack... I'm so sorry."
" I don'
My Nightmare Before Christmas Part 19KIDNAPPED? Jack would never! Would he? So many thoughts were racing through my head, I could hardly remember them.
" So if I'm this Daffodil girl, and she was kidnapped last year at this time by the skeleton that ruined Christmas... but this still doesn't explain how I-" I remembered Mortimer was still here. I looked at him afraid to finish my sentence.
" Explain how you what?"
"... How I died." I could've sworn I heard a snap as his heart was just broken.
Daffodil, my friend and my love, had died and the only reason I knew was because... she told me.
" Am I seeing things or are you actually an undead corpse walking around my room?"
" You're making me sound like a zombie, but yeah, I'm dead and walking."
" This is so much to take in."
A thought just came into my head. If Daffodil/Medea was alive when she was kidnapped and dead now, that would mean... I don't even want to say it. The thought is still too horrible, but you understand what I was going to say. It's
