Toby Robin O'Keefe and the Harlequin from HellDeep in the heart of the labyrinth, as Jodie and Doris contemplated yet another dead end, footsteps sounded behind them. “Someone’s coming,” whispered Doris.
“I hope it’s that little purple jerk,” said Jodie, relishing the possibility of revenge for the humiliation she’d suffered earlier.
It wasn’t Imp who came around the corner, though; it was the minotaur. He bellowed in triumph at the sight of his prey. He advanced steadily, his massive frame towering over the two young girls, who backed up until they were pressed against the wall. Jodie instinctively tried to shield Doris. The redhead heard some odd sounds behind her and at first thought her friend was crying. Then she realized Doris was singing, instead.
Oh, what a beautiful morning
Oh, what a beautiful day
I’ve got a wonderful feeling
Everything’s going my way
All the cattle are standing like statues
All the cattle are standing like st

As the door slid shut behind Lilim, Terry looked at Toby and asked plaintively, “What are we gonna do?”
“I dunno, Terr. Right now I wish I could scratch my nose."
Both girls tried their hardest to break the mold's sugary grip. The entire gelatin mold wiggled about, but they themselves could not budge an inch.
“There must be something we can do!” Terry gasped in exasperation. "We're going to get bored silly stuck in this stuff."
"Yeah," Toby agreed. "It's a lot like getting tied up. All you can do is sit there and try not to go stir crazy."
“I know!” Terry suddenly exclaimed. She glanced around the room, then said, “I spy, with my little eye, something that begins with ‘J’.”
Toby stared incredulously. I Spy, now? Surely she wasn’t serious?
But, from Terry’s expectant expression, Toby could tell her best friend did, indeed, expect a reply.
With a heavy sigh, Toby said,
Toby Robin O'Keefe and the Harlequin from HellChapter 1
A typical balmy spring day in Greendale; the final bell at Sacred Heart Elementary had sounded, and swarms of scarlet-and-gray-clad schoolgirls poured from the exits, heading for buses, bicycles, or the long walk home.
Taking a slight detour from their usual routes home were Toby Robin O’Keefe, Terry Blair, Jody Fitzgerald, and Doris Wade. The two sixth graders had been assigned to help Jodie and Doris with their upcoming third-grade science fair project, and they were all headed to the Greendale Library to start researching. Toby and Terry walked their bikes behind the two younger girls, who lived in walking distance of the school (and the library). Hovering overhead, unnoticed by anyone, were two spherical drones, one pink, one purple. Resembling giant eyeballs with pigtails, in seconds the machines located their targets and locked on.
“Where’s Margaret today?” Jodie asked Doris, Margaret being Doris' older sister and T

Tiredness had already taken affect on Clair. She climb up the steps to the third floor and nearly passed out on her door. "Just a few more steps and I can sleep." She said to herself.

A Halloween to remember Pt 2
The next afternoon, the two friends worked on their costumes. Liza was working on the sewing machine of her mother while Carmen helped out. Using some leftovers from her mother’s works, Lisa was improving the suits.
“Now with some leather we can make more real cuffs for your Ogre costume.” Liza said as she turned to Carmen. “Could you please pass the red fabric? My costume needs a good cape.”
“Wow! The costumes are looking great!” Carmen exclaimed surprised. “And to think we just pay eight dollars for both.”
“Never underestimate my seamstress abilities. After all, I’ve been helping mom since I was in first grade.” Lisa proclaims showing a costumes catalog. “I want them to look gorgeous.”
An hour later, the upgrades to their costumes were completed. They tried them on and they were perfect. The girls were so happy; they kept them on all afternoon. They role played with them until sunset.

"You've been saying that for the last three corners." Lindsey replied, exasperatedly. The two middle-school-aged girls had been wandering around town for hours, or at least it seemed that was to Lindsey. "I told my mom I'd be home by suppertime. It's nearly four o'clock now! I'm not even supposed to go downtown alone!"
Earlier that day, Suzy had stopped by her best friend's house and told her all about a new shop that had just opened in town She'd seen it while going to a movie with her mom, but her mother hadn't let her go in. Thus, the reason the two girls were now back looking for the shop Suzy had seen. Assuming it was really there.
