Miss Clue Fanatic: Season 4, Part 7
Scene: The children have just encountered Vanessa, who happens to be a ghost...
Vanessa: -Grins, then stands and looks at the children- No reason to be afraid, young ones. Why don't you come and sit?
John: I can think of plenty of reasons to be afraid!
Martha: Yeah! Why should we even trust you, you spirit!
Vanessa: Because I know everything about you, it's my ability.
Alice: What do you mean? -Gulps-
Vanessa: All ghosts have one special ability. Mine is to know everything about someone just by looking at them.
Lucy: -Shivers and stammers- P-prove it.
Vanessa: Alright then. Your name is Lucy, 10 years old, afraid of the dark, and collects hats.
Lucy: Martha! How did she know that? I wanna go home!
Martha: That's exactly where we're going Lucy!
Alice: Please, tell us the way out of here, if you even know. Please!
Vanessa: Well, I do know, but you can't leave just yet. Not before joining us for dinner, of course.
John: What do you mean by "us"?
Vanessa: The rest of the ghosts, obviously.
(All of the sudden, the rest of the ghosts appear in the chairs. Leaving four chairs empty for the kids.)
Susan: You have brought them to us! Well done Vanessa!
Vanessa: Thank you Mother. I told you I could do it.
Lucy: Leave us alone! -Hides behind the group-
Susan: Don't worry, we don't wish to do any harm.
Martha: I find that very unlikely.
Edward: I have ordered them not to hurt you, you will be perfectly fine.
John: Oh yeah? What gives you the authority?
Edward: I am Edward, prince of the ghosts here in this castle. And, very soon I will become King. -Looks over at Lucy, in a suspicious way-
Lucy: -Steps back-
Vanessa: -Mumbles- I would be a much better leader...
Edward: Enough of that, Vanessa. Now, why don't the four of you come and dine with us?
Alice: We're not hungry...
Susan: Of course you are. -Using her ability to make people feel things (including emotions), she makes them feel very hungry-
John: Are you sure about that Alice? -Stomach growls-
Edward: We certainly can't let you travel before being fed a proper meal.
Martha: We rather strave then risk ourselves being here. Come on guys, let's get out of here!
(John is at the table.)
John: They have roasted turkey!
Alice: I don't care! ...Ooh, cranberry sauce!
Lucy: Corn bread! -Joins Alice and John at table-
Martha: ...Sometimes I feel I am the only mature one around here.
Scene: The children are eating the food with the ghosts
Alice: This food is really good!'
John: Who knew ghosts could cook so well!
Ghost cook: -Floating by- Thank you!
Edward: Now, when do you plan on leaving?
Martha: As soon as we finish this food. -Crosses arms-
Susan: Oh? Why so soon?
Lucy: W-we need to get back home, we can't stay here.
Vanessa: Why not? -Grins-
Susan: -Makes them feel very tired, and they fall on the ground, asleep-
Stay tuned for Season 4, Part 8!
