The following week-- Halloween.
A resident opened their front door to find a trio of trick-or-treaters.
"Trick or treat! Smell my feet! Gimme something good to eat! If you don't I'll
TP your whole house and you won't know who did it cuz you can't see my face!"
Eddie lowered her sunglasses and gave the Asian boy an unimpressed look.
"What!" Steven exclaimed, shocked. He pulled his Ghostface mask up over his head. "How'd you know?!"
"You're always with Chuck and Don." She looked over at the two. Don was dressed as Shaun of the Dead and Chuck- Chuck was simply wearing a sign that read 'Bob Saget'. "Nice costume. I thought you said you were too mature to go trick or treating."
"Eh, last minute decision..." Chuck replied. "Who're you supposed to be?"
"Pfff, she said stradlin'." Steven snickered.
"It's the name of one of the guitarists from Guns N' Roses." Don said.
"Yep," Eddie nodded. "Alicia's Slash and our cousin, Junior, would've been Axl, if he hadn't got sick. But we have Tyler."
Tyler popped out from behind Eddie.
"He's a moose...head," the girl shifted her eyes to the side awkwardly. "Anyways, do you guys want to go trick or treating with us? We're about to leave."
"Sure!" Chuck grinned.
"More the merrier," Don added.
"Cool." Eddie leaned into the doorway and called out. "'Licia, hurry up!"
"Comiiiing!" Alicia called from inside. There's a thumping from inside of the house as the blonde ran towards her sister. She bumps into Tyler and parts the wig's abundant curls. "It's hard to see out this thing!"
"Same with the moose head!" Tyler agreed. "We'll be blind buddies!"
The two run out the door pass Chuck and the others.
"Yeahh...shall we, Bob?" Eddie stepped out and closed the door behind her.
With that the group head off down the street.
A handful of candy was handed out to each kid that came up to the resident's door.
"Thank you!" Chuck called out as the group walked back down the owner's walkway.
"Good thing we brought pillow cases, yeah?" Steven said, holding his up. "Stuff's gonna last me 'til Thanksgiving, yee!"
"Or, or you could save all the candy and eat it for Thanksgiving." Tyler replied.
"Man, that would be kind of cool but I don't think I could wait that long. I gotta have my daily intake of candy, yo."
"Well I mean you could still eat some of the candy, but save most of it."
"I dunno, man."
As Tyler and Steven had this discussion, a small group of kids in the background were heading up a walk way to a house. As they approached, the home owner was slowing walking towards them. In mid trick or- the man grabbed one of the kids and leaned in. Screams emitted from the three, but only two ran away.
"Ew, is that guy macking on that kid?" Steven wrinkled his nose in disgust.
"What?" Chuck turned his head in the direction.
"Gross!" Tyler said.
"Oh, stop it!" Alicia exclaimed. "They're just hugging! That's probably the kid's dad."
"Dun look like it to me," Steven replied.
"Of course it doesn't." Don rolled his eyes.
"Hey Eddie, can we stop for the night?" Chuck asked. "We could head back to my house and hang out there for a while."
"Sure," Eddie replied. "Is that alright with you guys?"
"Yeah," Alicia said. "It's starting to get too dark for the wig."
"Alrighty then," Chuck said. "Le's go."
The group continued to walk. Steven took one last look back at the man and child who were still in embrace.
"PE-DO-PHILE!" Steven shouted.
"Dude!" Chuck gasped as the group quickly ran away (some giggling in the process) before any expected exchange of words occurred between them and the man.
