Somewhere, in the Lorglax galaxy of Gamma Sector 4….
Sigma: Finally. It’s time. The one day a year when I can feed off of the pure horror of others. All Hallow’s Eve.
Stevenson: My Lord, I have contacted the Corps as you requested. They shall be beaming down to Earth shortly.
Sigma: Excellent work, Stevenson. And now it begins.
Cypress: Happy Halloween, everyone!
Alyssa: Cypress, we don’t necessarily get to celebrate Halloween in this line of duty.
Cypress: And why is that?
Alyssa: It’s the one day a year in which Sigma could actually triumph over our defenses. He feeds off the horror of the people of Tokyoville.
Cypress: Nonsense! Everyone needs a little fright now and then! Which is exactly the reason I booked us 4 tickets to Crazy Bob’s Haunted House!
Charles: Wait, isn’t Crazy Bob that guy in the woods who lives off nothing but dead rats and sewer water?
Perez: I’m pretty sure he has rabies.
Cypress: There’s a good chance he does! But that’s the fun of it!
Alyssa: Fine, we’ll do your haunted house thing. It should be a break from fighting Sigma, anyway…
Later, at Crazy Bob’s Haunted House..
Crazy Bob: Come one, come all to Crazy Bob’s Haunted House! We’ve got thrills and chills! Just make sure to get your tetanus shot at the door!
The team walks into the house.
Crazy Bob: Please, take off your shoes! I have a thing about shoes!
Cypress: Wow, Alyssa, wasn’t that skeleton scary?
Alyssa: It was just a paper plate tied to a broom.
Cypress: Aw, you ruin all the fun! Anyway, let’s go on to the next room!
The team walks into the library, as the door slams behind them.
Charles: Wait, why is the door closed?!
Perez: Is it LOCKED?!
Cypress: Calm down guys, the door isn’t locked. See, I’ll prove it to you!
Cypress pulls the door, which doesn’t budge.
Cypress: Okay, we’re gonna die here.
Alyssa: I knew it! Halloween is an an awful holiday! We’re gonna die here!
Suddenly, the lights flicker. They come back on, to reveal Perez has disappeared.
Cypress: Oh great! Now Perez is gone!
Alyssa: Listen up, guys. There has to be a way out of here.
Charles: But how are we supposed to get out? The only one good at lockpicking was Perez, and now look at what happened to him!
Cypress: Okay. Calm down. Charles, what if you tried to ram the door down?
Charles: Good idea!
Charles rams the door, succeeding in breaking it down. A series of puzzles are revealed behind it.
Cypress: COOL! This is just like my favorite horror movie, Wrench! Now we just have to get out of these puzzles and we’ll be free!
Alyssa: Or we could just use the stairs…
Alyssa motions toward a staircase, in which Perez is standing.
Perez: Oh hey guys! I went to go get a cheese dog from the concession stand! Anyway, I found a staircase that leads outside!
Cypress: Fine. We’ll do it your way, Alyssa.
Later at the dojo….
Cypress: Who’s ready for a scary movie marathon?!
Alyssa: Thanks anyway, Cy, but I think we’re all scared out for tonight.
Cypress: Fine. I guess I’ll just go watch Wrench IV: The Final Twist by myself.
Charles: Wait, you mean the one where they reveal who Boltcutter is?! I wanna watch!
Perez: Count me in!
The three walk off, leaving Alyssa alone in the room.
Alyssa: Fine. I guess I can’t fight majority rule… WAIT UP!
Alyssa follows them out of room.
Sigma: Excellent, Stevenson. My energy is refilled. Let the fun truly begin.
