    “This is Halloween, this is Halloween, pumpkins scream in the dead of night. This is Halloween, everybody make a scene, Trick or treat 'til the neighbors gonna die of fright. It's our town, everybody scream in this town of Halloween. This is Halloween, Halloween, Halloween.”


    Indeed, this is Halloween! A night of fright and terror that spreads throughout all of Fiore. Children dressing up as ghouls and zombies, witches and animals infected with rabies. Traveling all across the country for treats, parties with meets and greets, all in the name of Halloween. Now different cultures celebrate for different reasons, for the dead, for the fun, or even just because it's just become tradition to dress up before bed. Tolglalen wasn’t any different, but it was more about business as usual around the docks than it should have been.

    However! One mage, a ghoulish and undeeeeeeeeeeaaaaddd man that runs the Exotic Emporium deep within the land! A place that collects and houses all sorts of exotic creatures from all over Earthland, to feed and entertain. This year was different than the rest, decorations littered the place, attractions and games populated all of the large open spaces. Fog and smoke blanketed the floor like a mighty pond of water. The haunted atmosphere was on point to both enjoy and fear. They had all the games and stalls from surprise potions to whacking ghouls with a hammer. Even the exhibits were decorated with haunted houses such as one that floats above the massive Basilisk pit, glass and fog keeping an air of mystery, and protection for the guests, about what was beneath.

    When nightfall hits, trick or treaters and all manner of guests flooded the zoo en masse. All having a good time and all from different corners of Fiore. Hours in, one half of the ownership of the emporium struck out on his own to enjoy the spooktacular as well. It was, afterall, the perfect time of year to let his other side out, a Mr. Hyde to his Dr. Jekyll if you will. Stepping out of his office, his face half mutated into an extraplanar visitor. The left side of his body, specifically, was gray and had a large red and glowing eye in place of a human like facade. Lips were connected by fleshy sinew strands that stretch and vibrate as he talked and mingled. Nava, his giant red panda, was also in spirit! His bright orange fur was painted to be that of a zombie version of himself, many of the children enjoyed the large, furry beast.

    Jaeger strolled up to the first activity he saw, a shell-like game making use of coffins and candy. The dealer was there to mix up and confuse the player who was there to simply guess where the candy was. It was a game of much skill and intuition! Were you skilled enough to keep visual track of the right coffin? Or does your gut tell and lead you to another? Or perhaps this night, the fabled G.O.A.T. of the carnival will make an appearance and both with mark the right box! Unfortunately, this wasn’t Jaeger, he relied more on his gut feeling than anything.


    “Go ahead, coffin man. Switch them up! I’ll get it on the first try.”


    The confidence was there, but will the hunches be on his side?  Only father time will tell, as he was the one running this game. The candy was placed in the middle coffin, closed, and then shuffled with a speed that only the gods could see. The suspense filled the air, all those watching tensed as the coffins slid across the table. Sweat beaded up and dropped down like  a rainy day as Jaeger gulped with anticipation.

    Then…

    The coffins stopped. Three identical coffins rest upon the spooky table. Smoke and fog cloud around like a tablecloth. EVeryone went silent as JAegers hand slowly approached the left coffin.


    “Its… Its uh… this one!”


    His hand slaps the coffin and the Father Time figure, who now stands to look more like a grim reaper like a fellow, opens the coffin to reveal…..

    Nothing. The large crowd ‘Awwws’ with disappointment.


    “Well…. Oof"

    I CREATED THE SOUND OF MADNESS
    WROTE THE BOOK ON PAIN
    SOMEHOW I'M STILL HERE TO EXPLAIN

    --- THAT THE DARKEST HOUR NEVER COMES IN THE NIGHT ---
    Calliope had never been to a zoo before, let alone a zoo during Halloween! She had always wanted to go to one, but unfortunately her life up until very recently had made it difficult to be in complete control of where she was at any given time. And while there was certainly still a lot going on and much processing to do, her life was arguably in a much better place now. Besides, what better excuse did she have to finally go to one than her daughter? Though the child was only a few months old, she was old enough to hold up her head and actually take in the world around her, so truthfully she was the perfect age for something like a petting zoo, or even just staring in fascination at the large beasts the zoo grounds housed.

    But with there also being a holiday going on, there was double the excitement! All available excess space around the property had been filled with various stalls hosting games and drinks, and all sorts of Halloween and fall themed activities. As always, Calliope was more than happy to simply wander and enjoy the sights, watching as various families enjoyed themselves with candy and prizes. Most of them were dressed up in some way, befitting of the holiday, and she hadn’t hesitated to join them! She’d found an adorable harlequin style dress that sported various black and pink panels, and had a big poofy skirt and sleeves. One leg had a pink and white striped stocking while the other was black and white, and her shoes and gloves were a mismatched pink and black as well. Even her eyes and hair were mismatched, though they were always like that, the pink and brunette locks tied up in loose, messy pigtails on either side of her head.

    Her daughter was fastened into a pouch on her chest that was designed to let Calliope carry her while also being able to have her hands free. The little girl was dressed up in a costume of her own made to look like a little witch, with short blonde hair and bright pink eyes that soaked in the atmosphere around them with interest as she babbled away.

    A small crowd caught her attention. Curious, she made her way over and managed to worm her way up to a front spot to see what all the fuss was about. Everyone was watching a young man – half of whose body was done up like it had been mutated into some kind of alien figure – playing some kind of shell game that had been gussied up in Halloween fashion with little coffins for the cups. The man was attempting to keep up with the movement of the coffins as they sped around back and forth. When they finally stopped he was asked to choose one of them, pointing at the left most coffin. The attendant running the game stood and dramatically flipped over the coffin to reveal it to be empty!

    The crowd around her let out a collective noise of disappointment. Meanwhile, the man in charge of the game was already looking for his next player. His eyes fell on Calliope, beckoning her forward. “You, there! The young woman with the adorable little witch. You look like you’d like to give this game a try! Maybe you’ll have more luck than the gentleman here!”

    She was a little surprised to be singled out, but with the encouragement of the crowd Calliope slowly approached the table with a shy smile. “So… what do I do?” she asked, looking back and forth between the game master and the man that had just played.

    “I’m going to put a piece of candy under one of these three coffins, and they’re going to shuffle around. When they stop moving, you just have to guess which one you think the candy is under. Find the candy, and you win!”

    “Well… I do like candy. I’ll give it a try!” She watched as he hid the candy beneath one of the coffins, and soon enough they were shuffling so quickly that Calliope earnestly had no idea where the prize had gone. Honestly, even if she still had her magic she wasn’t sure she’d been able to keep up with it! When they finally stopped moving, the perplexed look on her face would be more than enough to tell anyone watching that she had absolutely zero idea where the candy was. “Oh boy.. Um… I guess, maybe that one?” She pointed at the one on the far right. The man lifted up the coffin…

    And it was empty. Another round of disappointed “awwws” sounded around the crowd. With a rueful shrug, the short woman looked up to Jaeger with a somewhat sheepish expression. “This game is certainly a lot harder than it looks, isn’t it?”
