Miss Clue Fanatic: Season 4, Part 2
Scene: The next day, the children are walking back home from school
Martha: So Alice, what did cousin Anne and Richard say?
Alice: -Sighs- They said I couldn't go without them.
John: What! I've spent all of my allowance on those tickets!
John: Oh, I mean... Wait, no, that's exactly what I mean!
Alice: Sorry guys, but my parents just won't budge.
Lucy: Maybe we could all go again on the next opening?
Alice: I hope so, I would hate on missing out.
John: You sure would, because it's gonna be awesome!
Martha: -Steps on his foot-
John: Ow! Okay okay!
Scene: Back at home, the Darcy family is carving Jack-O-Lanterns
Lucy: Mom, Dad, what are Jack-O-Lanterns for?
Josh: Well, back in the old days, Jack-O-Lanterns were used to drive evil spirits away.
Jane: But today, they're just used for decoration.
Lucy: -Gulp- Evil spirits...?
Martha: Don't worry Lucy, the only evil spirits that exist are demons.
Lucy: That doesn't help me!
Martha: Remember what we talked about in Church last Sunday? They can only hurt you if you let them.
Lucy: Oh, right.
Jane: -Laughs- Glad that you paid attention Martha.
Josh: -Puts Jack O Lantern on his head- How do I look?
Lucy: -Laughs- Dad, you're so silly!
Martha: Um, Dad...
Josh: Yes Martha?
Martha: Wouldn't you have problems taking that off?
Josh: Nonsense! -Tries to take it off, but it's stuck-
Jane: -Face palm-
Scene: That night, strange things start to happen...
Martha: -Is playing a racing game on iPod- Yes, yes! Almost to the finish line, and then new high score for this track!
(All of the sudden the game glitches and the iPod shuts off.)
Martha: Noooo! It didn't even need to be charged! -Tries to turn it back on, but it won't work- Ugh.
Lucy: -Entering the room- The phone just cut off, and I was talking to Jasmine!
Martha: At least you weren't going for a new high score!
Josh: (From the other room, with the pumpkin unfortunately still on his head) Jane! The TV isn't working!
Jane: Neither is the blender!
Martha: Why did all of the electricity go out?
Lucy: Maybe it was a power outage?
Josh: Most likely, and if so, it shouldn't last long.
Jane: Well, I guess we won't be having strawberry smoothies with dinner.
Lucy: -Suddenly feels a chill up her spine and shivers-
Martha: You okay Lucy?
Lucy: Yeah, I'm fine, just a little cold. -Shivers-
Martha: -Touches forehead- My goodness Lucy, you're freezing!
(The electricity goes back on, and at the same time, Lucy is warm again.)
Martha: That's odd...
Stay tuned for Season 4, Part 3!
