I have no idea what on earth Jack was working on with all of these orange gemstones and gold pieces, but it was certainly keeping him occupied when he wasn't planning for next year's Halloween. Thankfully, he was still busy when Christmas came around the corner, the perfect moment to make my escape to the real world. My first thought was to take the passage from the graveyard, but I would be more hidden if I took the door at that place with the doors Jack called the Hinterlands. I heard him say that if you go through your own door, you come to the real world. Real world. That sounded so familiar, I couldn't put my boney finger on it. But that was where I needed to go, that's where this Mortimer character was, as well as my past.
I knew something was up with the blue girl that night on Halloween. She looked at that boy funny, kind like of the way I did when Master Jack brought home all those sparkly thing from the tree door. I had a bad feeling about those things, they led to nothing but trouble. But anyways, I was chewing on a bone from one of those skeleton deer we had when I saw the blue girl go into the woods. I didn't know what she was doing, perhaps she was wandering again, so I followed her. My 'heart' skipped a beat when she neared the door trees, and it did so again when she stepped into the Halloween door. My first thought; Get Master Jack. My second; What is she up to?
