    Greg was just going to let Lorcan handle this. He seemed to be dressed more for a beat down than Greg was. If the dude wasn't willing to give Aki candy, and was wearing a lame mask, he probably had Opinions on Greg's costume, and disabusing him of those Opinions would take time out of the candy route. Greg was almost definitely sure that Lorcan would be able to fix this in less time. Whether or not magic was involved was a different question, but Greg readied himself to freeze the dude if need be. The one benefit of the Elsa sticker incident.

    Kitty, noticing Greg shift his stance, discreetly went to her stickyhand. She was not getting left out of any more adventures. Greg seemed to have too many without her including Lorcan and Aki.

    Aki glared at the jerk who was denying him candy. And then back at the jerk in the Frankenstein mask and crossed his arms. "Its Halloween. You have to give us candy if we come trick or treating, and if you don't, we get to trick you."

    "If you egg my house, I'm calling the cops," the man said.

    Lorcan raised his hands. "Sure, no eggs." Like he'd need eggs to really fuck up this guy's night. "But he's got a point about the Halloween spirit here. At least give my kid and his friend their candy, this is his favorite night of the year and I don't want to ruin it."

    "It's my birthday," Trick piped up. "And you're being an ashhole."

    "Oh, really, your birthday? I don't suppose you can prove that?"

    "He's...six, dude. He doesn't exactly have a driver's license." Okay, Lorcan might have to leave a word with his mother and have her come back with some eggs. In addition to whatever he did to this guy. Because this was definitely heading to a throw down.

    "And how do I know that?" Frankenstein guy stooped down to look at Trick. "Seems to me anyone could be under that blanket."

    "Anyone under four feet, you mean?"

    "I've seen weirder." The look the man fixed on Lorcan, Greg, and Aki made it pretty clear who he was talking about.

    Lorcan sputtered. "I don't wear my necro robes every day, you--"

    You know what? Fine. Fine. Lorcan tried being nice. He glanced over at Trick, who nodded. "Alright," Lorcan said, gripping a corner of Trick's sheet. "What do you say we make a little wager? If I pull this sheet off and there's a teenager under there, we'll leave. No candy, no eggs. But if there isn't a teenager underneath the sheet, you have to give us the entire bowl. Do we have a deal? One, two--"

    "Hey, I didn't--"

    Lorcan pulled the sheet on "three". There wasn't a teenager underneath. There wasn't a child underneath. There wasn't anything underneath, because Trick wasn't wearing a bedsheet costume, he was a bedsheet costume. His birth had made for an interesting Halloween.

    That was when the screaming started.

    Greg had to admit. That was a pretty cool trick to pull. And he probably should have expected that Trick was really just a bedsheet, and not a floating object. Or a lamp. Although to be fair, with Lorcan, it could be anything. It seemed like a great idea to make sure that the screaming house owners kept their end of the bargain. It'd be a shame to let all that candy to waste, since they were being snobs. Kitty seemed to sense what Greg was thinking, or wasn't willing to let candy fall through her hands. She, Trick, Greg and Aki cleaned the people out of candy, before everyone ran (or rolled) away from the house.

    Kitty was laughing, and giving Trick a high five. Tricking people out of candy was the best.

    Aki had expected some level of resistance from a few people, but had honestly not expected to walk away from those confrontations with more than a single gruding piece of candy. This, though, was far beyond expectations, and he high fived Trick and Kitty as the group sprinted down the street (a technique that had taken them at least half an hour to perfect, but at least no one had been inadvertently hit in the face since).

    "Oh, for fuck's sake." Lorcan sighed and Heely'd after the kids (and Aki). Greg should be able to catch up with Elsa's ice powers.

    At least Trick was having fun. Maybe this wasn't such a bad Halloween after all.

    The kids (and Aki) had stopped near the last house, where another group was also getting candy. Lorcan gave a perfunctory nod to the other parents waiting by the house as the children screamed at a light-up gravestone prop.

    "We should go to the hill house next!" a kid in a Ghostbuster costume said to another.

    "Nuh-uh. It's super haunted and they never have candy."

    Lorcan checked his watch and pulled out another box of grape juice. Only eight-thirty. Not bad. He had plenty of time to get Trick back home and get ready for midnight. The children's words slowly seeped into his mind. A house on a hill...haunted... Nah, it couldn't be...

    Kitty was hatching a plan. It was great. Since Greg kept having lots of adventures with the group and not inviting her, it was up to her to start the adventure. She had overheard the kids running back to their parents talking about a haunted house on a hill. There was definitely an adventure to be had at a haunted house. And maybe you could only get the candy if you got through the house. There could be loads of candy, just waiting for them!

    She waited until after they had gotten their candy from this house, a lousy haul given what they nabbed from the last house, but not everyone is an sore sport. Then, she struck.

    "I heard there's a haunted house nearby. We should go explore it. Maybe there's candy if you can get through the whole house," Kitty said to Aki and Trick, making sure to walk slowly and keep an eye on Greg and his friend Lorcan. This probably wouldn't work if the responsible people caught wind of what they were going to do.

    "Haunted house usually have boring prizes though," Aki mused aloud. "It's usually just 'Oh boy thank you for helping this ghost move on' gratitude and suchlike."

    "Psh," Trick said. "That's baby stuff, like exorcisms. My dad's going to a big necro thing later, they get ghosts to do all kinds of stuff for them. Of course, you've gotta know how to do the spells and junk. Also it helps if you wear Heely's."

    "Well, yeah, sure, necromancers get to do fun stuff, but the point remains that they don't have candy as the prize.


    Also, wait, is Lorcan a necromancer again now?"

    "Not really. Halloween's big for necromancers, though. There's a party and sometimes they summon the dead so he digs out the robe every year. Also last year he came back covered in blood and said he wasn't ever going back but he got it dry cleaned so he must have changed his mind."

    "Ok, but Trick, I heard Lorcan saying to Greg that this was the last house before he took you home. So, if you don't want to go home, we have to go explore the house. Maybe that's where the party is, and maybe they have food there!" Kitty said. She was not going to lose her chance to have a Halloween adventure.
     
  13. GlitterWizard

    Lorcan hadn't mentioned the party yet, but Aki figured that must mean that coming in costume would be okay, or else that they'd all go change after dropping off Trick and Kitty, which made sense, since the two of them probably had earlier bedtimes.

    "Well I guess if Trick only has one more house with us, we can stop by and check really quickly. But you should really try to talk your dad into two houses so we can hit up that place with the full-sized chocolate bars again before you go."

    Hm. It was a difficult proposition for Trick's young/old mind. On the one hand, he was stubborn and wanted to say no on principle, since it wasn't like he liked hanging out with Kitty and Aki. He didn't care about food that wasn't candy, and he was pretty sure the necro party happened in a cemetery near the river were it would be really easy to hide the bodies. But, on the other hand...

    Aki's route had gotten Trick way more candy than last year, and even Kitty was not as much a candy hog as Trick thought. He had to admit, there was something intriguing about getting to explore the world outside Lorcan's apartment for longer than a couple hours. And it wasn't like any haunted house could hurt him anyways (he pushed away the memory of a sparkly rainbow doll that filled the whole apartment with a deep chill), Kitty and Aki were fragile humans but it wasn't like Trick cared what might happen to them (they really weren't that bad).

    He turned to Kitty, ignoring Aki's suggestion. Chocolate bars were nice, but this might be even better. "Let's do it."

    Kitty smiled. Trick might be her new best friend. Depends on if Vulk lets her into the next adventure he has.

    "Alright, let's go!"

    And Kitty lead the charge to the Haunted House on the Hill.

    "The kids and Aki just bolted," Lorcan informed Greg, who was adjusting his costume's cape. "I think they're heading to the haunted house up on the hill. Prepare to swarmed with a complete misunderstanding of the works of Steven Spielberg and platters of increasingly tiny bites of cheese."

    Swear to god, if this made him late for the party...
     
  17. RainbowCatAngelStickerz

    Greg looked up. Sure enough, Kitty had run off, Trick and Aki right behind her. He sighed.

    "I should have known she'd pull something like this. She hates it when it's time to stop trick or treating. And how does someone misunderstand the works of Steven Spielberg? Is this one of your siblings?"

    "Worse. Her boyfriend," Lorcan said with an eyeroll. "He's this two hundred year old 'European duke' cursed to fade in and out with the seasons or whatever. He lives in a spooky mansion up on a hill, people always freak out when he shows back up. Aislin met him like back in college and they bonded over gothic poetry and being ironically angst-ridden. He's also basically never seen a movie so his taste sucks, and Mom still keeps letting him pick what we watch for movie night! I am not looking forward to seeing him again, let me tell you." But he supposed it would be a harmlessly frightening end to a good Halloween, so there was that.

    "Man am I glad that Kitty's not old enough to have a boyfriend. She'd probably find the most obnoxious guy on the planet. Someone just like her. I do not need two Kittys. One is more than enough. But also, shouldn't your mom let someone else pick a movie? I understand letting guests pick things, but I'm pretty sure that a long term boyfriend stops being a guest at some point." Greg said, sympathizing. Well, as much as he could. He'd never admit to liking the Disney movies that Kitty picked when it was her turn for movie night.

    "Exactly! Ugh, it's probably because he reminds her of dad. Maybe I should get a boyfriend who sometimes doesn't exist on this plane of reality, maybe then he'd be able to pick a movie. It's always 'Lorcan, the Duke goes back to his dimension of unending unexistance on the solstice, what does it matter if he wants to watch Suicide Squad again?' The man thinks Jared Leto's Joker design was exquisite. He used that exact word. 'Ex-quiii-site'. In his shitty European accent. I'm pretty sure it's fake."
