Grim Adventures: The Thousand-Year Door 0-1
Three years had passed since the finale, and Billy and Mandy were in their first year of Middle School, so far not much had changed. Grim was still their slave, same kids, same weird supernatural activities and as always, same Endsville. The only thing that has changed is that Billy and Mandy are eleven years old now, and they have a new school and teachers.
It was a particular boring day. As boring as it can get on a school day anyway, we find Billy and Mandy confronted with their teacher. A bald man with a large grey moustache wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans. He had a very stern, strict look to him. Unlike Miss Butterbean who was uncaring and quite lazy, he got the job done well and kept other students from misbehaving efficiently.
Billy looked from left to right looking at the other students, ignoring the pop-quiz given to him. Mandy was looking at some articles she smuggled into class, she had finished her pop-quiz easily; Irwin had also finished his pop-quiz easily and he w
Dee's Big Day
Dee opened her eyes with both a gasp and a light belch on her lips. That belch had been from last night's meal, she was pretty sure. Dee sat up in her bed. The mattress creaked and squeaked underneath her with every movement that she made. Dee yawned into her chubby fist, her double-chin jiggling slightly. She scratched at her hulking stomach, which splayed itself over the blanket as well as her legs. The little nightgown she'd worn to bed did not do even CLOSE to an adequate job in covering her body. It barely fit over her breasts for that matter, it didn't stand a ghost of a chance in getting past her stomach. Dee continued to rub her belly. She was only half-conscious at this point, her brain still wanting to remain in the slumber land it had just been suddenly yanked from. Dee smacked her plump lips a few times. Man, did she wish that everything she had been eating before now had been real. She could almost actually taste it, that was how good, and how
Mystery Skulls Ghost- Back to the Mansion 6
The three of them became lost again rather quickly. They couldn’t hear the fight any more, which meant either it was over, or they had gone too far to hear. Lewis hadn’t thought the school was that large. He hoped Mystery was alright. He was certain Cheryl would be fine; she’d been quite skillful with those knives- but Lewis wasn’t sure whether that would be a good or bad thing.
He wondered if he should have stepped in and helped. If he had, maybe they wouldn’t have gotten split up like this. Then again, maybe he would have made things worse. Lewis hadn’t ever fought another ghost before; for all he knew, he might be totally outclassed. He hated that he didn’t know.
Vivi had been fairly silent for the last several minutes, lost in thought. Lewis couldn’t blame her- Cheryl had given them a lot to think about, both specifically and in general. He wondered- where would he fall on that ten-point scale? What about the Deadbeats?
Not that he wo
Mystery Skulls Ghost- Back to the Mansion 5
“So in summary, Carly was moved to foster care less than a month ago for as-yet unknown reasons,” Cheryl started. “Pookly somehow became friends with her, and she thought of him as a protector. Other than for Carly, he didn’t let himself be seen until a teacher caught him with her in the girl’s restroom, and he hasn’t been seen since. We don’t yet know of anyone dead in her life, and you have no idea why he’s so interested in her. That about sum it up?”
“In a nutshell,” Arthur nodded.
Cheryl looked up at the ceiling. “Well, that fits with what I know.” She looked back down at Mystery, who was now lying on one of the student’s chairs, seemingly bored. “Guess that means it’s my turn. Where do I start…?”
She had let them go through the story, from the e-mail to the drawing in the hallway, listening intently and nodding occasionally as if pieces were falling into place. She had only
Understanding - Chapter 1Knowledge was the only thing she was good at. Being able to solve simple math equations that others would find difficulty upon, clicking the pieces of real-life puzzles together, and just merely being able to know the history of each and every monster they came across for her was just a breeze. It wouldn't take a genius to know why everyone in the group always turned to her when they encountered a problem. She'd be the one to solve it, of course. And what made her wits truly remarkable was that she was able to solve everything that came into her way.
But why couldn't she solve this?
Vivi felt like banging her head repeatedly on the table as she continued to stare at her notes, which was mainly consisted of rushed scribbles and multiple doodles. She took a bite out of her doughnut, eyes transfixed on the paper as she continued to gather everything she had written down. She remembered grabbing her notebook the moment they had left that mansion a week ago and had written everything she re
Mystery Skulls Ghost- Back to the Mansion 1“Lewis! Lewis?”
Lewis wasn’t paying attention at the moment. He was staring off into space, like he was about to doze off.
“Lew-lew!” He jerked back to attentiveness as he felt Vivi’s hand on his shoulder, the back of his head hitting the wall behind Vivi’s couch. Had he been in his ghost form with the floating skull, his hair probably would have done significant damage. Fortunately, he was in his more human state. In the four days since he’d left the mansion, he had vastly preferred looking like himself to having a floating skull- especially after seeing his ghostly self in the mirror for the first time. All the mirrors in the mansion were enchanted, so he hadn’t been able to see how he looked- which had only made it harder to learn how to tie a tie, among other things.
“Lewis, I’ve got news!” Vivi was saying. Lewis knew that tone of voice. Whatever Vivi had found, she was eager to share it.
