But the thing that Coraline hated to do most had nothing to do with the town itself. Hanging out with Wybie? That she could handle. Listening to Miss Spink and Miss Forcible predict her future and argue over who was right? That was a cakewalk compared to this.
Going shopping with her mother had to be illegal. Somewhere.
Unfortunately, her family had decided to go to town that day. Charlie Jones had an appointment with the editor of both his and his wifes catalogs, and it had been said that only one of the two needed to be there. Coraline wished her mother would have gone, because at least her dad would take her somewhere fun, somewhere better than this place. The department store in Ashland had a fancy name that Coraline couldnt remember, and it smelled of pe

It was something of an ongoing joke by the citizens of San Diego, California that the Walters had far too many balls for their own good.
This was, in fact, not true.
They held the required amount of balls each year, as was befitting a family of good standing in the community.
Currently, they were hosting another one.
The last ball they had hosted had been a bit of a disaster, to say the least. One of the Walter automatons, thinking he would be the hero and save the day from the Wicked Jon of the West Wing, had picked up the entire punch bowl and thrown it at his fellow ‘bot, causing him to malfunction and open up a hole to the Eighth Dimension of Absolute and Infinite Terror, releasing three dragons, a small but volatile new species of termite, and a small infestation of folk singers into the ballroom. They had to get a man in with a terrier to hunt the lot down.
The automatons watched the dancers whirl on the floor, sparkling in the lig

She heard a clicking noise on the ground. Mice? She looked up. No, this time the Other Mothers rats were not disguised as mice but only rats, and were looking for the cheese Coraline had left in the doorway. It was a good idea, as the mice were how she had known when the door was open before. She got up, dressed quickly in a navy blue sweater, jeans, and her favorite hat, and followed them down the stairs. She knew the door would be unblocked, and it was. The long, dark tunnel, no longer glowing magically, led to an identical door. She climbed through, blowing cobwebs out of her face. When she got to the other side, she noticed the bright, creepy bug r

Hed loved her for the longest time
Since the first time she punched him in the arm, Wybie had loved Coraline Jones.
At first hed just been watching her because Cat had told him to, but the more he watched her, the more she intrigued him. She wasnt like other girls. Hed guessed that from her blue hair, but she was just so he didnt know how to explain it. She was brave, and tough and smart. She liked exploring and insects, best of all, she wasnt afraid of him. Hed liked other girls before, but theyd get scared whenever he tried to talk to them. Coraline was occasionally annoyed by him (okay, often annoyed by him) but she was never frightened. In the months since shed moved into the pink palace, shed become his best friend- in fact, his only friend, besides Cat, of course.
Wybie sighed as he pondered these thoughts in his bed. The sun was just beginning to peek over the horizon and he needed to get up. He had a lot of
