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.
My Nightmare Before Christmas Part 4Zero's POV
Master Jack managed to save the fat, red man and the rag doll girl, and Christmas was back to normal. Everyone was happy that he was okay, especially the Mayor. Personally, I think he's the biggest suck-up for Master Jack. Any who, Master Jack and the rag doll girl were on top of the hill hugging. That's when I scented it. Blood.
I flew past Master Jack and the rag doll girl, following my brightly lit nose. It took me a while, but eventually, I wound up finding the scent source. The girl I saw earlier was here, but she wasn't moving. Blood poured out of her arm. It was almost too horrifying, even for someone who grew up around blood and death. Master Jack had to see this. I howled into the night sky.
Yes, I realized that I was meant to be the Pumpkin King and no one else, but recognizing my true identity wasn't the highlight of my day. Being wrapped in Sally's arms, gazing into the stars upon that hill, seems that was all I needed. Never before had I felt so alive
