Nightmare Before Christmas A Short Story
Jack walked through the haunted town of holloween, making his way to his tower. At times he didn't want to leave Sally to herself at night in her new lonely home. Jack didn't like the idea of leaving her side at all. It was hard enough to leave durring the day time to work since he was the "The Pumpkin King" and needed to keep Holloween Town in order.
Sally had told him, in her free time she would like to sew and for a small aniversery gift she was sewing up something special. But Jack wasn't so happy. In just two more days... two more days, it'd be their two year aniversery. He climbed the stairs of the large tower, staring at him feet. He sighed as his dog, Zero, barked with happiness that his skeliton master was home.
Jack laid on his "bed" and looked at his ghostly pup who had joined him. "Oh, Zero, I don't know I shall ever do of this.. Only two more days before our aniversery and I have nothing to give.." he groaned. Zero looked sadly at Jack. He smiled as a idea popped in his head. Zero barked with glee and fled, coming back with a scrapbook of all of the Holloween stuff.
Jack took the book and smiled. "Good thinking, Zero! I'll make her a scrapbook!! This will be the greatest present ever!!" he cried out in joy. Jack got up and got to work. The next day, Sally walked through town as she passed the mayor. "Hello, mayor!" she greeted. "Hello, Sally!!" he waved. She snuck through the gate doors and smiled, walking about a grave yard. She sat down and pulled out some things from her basket. A black cat sat by her and meowed.
That very night, Sally heard a knock on her door. She got up and opened it. There, she was picked up quickly and recieved a surprise kiss from her loved one, Jack. "Hello again.." she said, smiling. Jack hugged her. "Hello, Sally.. What ever shall we do tonight..?" he asked. Sally slipped from his grip. "Well, if you want we can, oh I don't know.." she whispered. She was hushed by a boney finger before being kissed deeply. She smiled.
Sally picked up a book from the shelf. "Have you ever heard of The Princess And The Pea
?" she asked. Jack stared at the cover. "Not in my life." he said. "That's because your not alive.." she joked. He smiled and held her close as she opened the book to the first page and began reading. Many hours later, the clock stroke twelve and they looked up. "Oh, it's time to say good-bye.." Sally whispered, saddened. "I will be back for you tomorrow night, dearest.." Jack promised. Sally smiled and nodded.
