((This is my first TNBC fanfic, and I'm hoping this will be a pretty good one that will stay true the movie. Just a note though, I've been noticing in some other TNBC fanfics of fangirls finding their way into Halloween Town and that the movie exists, no offense to those people but I personally think that if that really happened then there wouldn't be a movie because well....no knows about Halloween town except for Sandy Claws, The Easter bunny and the residents that occupy HalloweenTown. I hope you enjoy this))
Locked up and the escape
It was the day of Halloween, the Jacobson's house was in an uproar of yelling and screaming as the youngest of the childern was being scolded for some strange thing. The only thing that poor Holly could do was to bite her lip and take the bombardment of insults and false conclusion that her parents were dishing out to her. It was always like this, it was worse during holidays. Her big sister Sara took great joy in these times especially for the fact that usually the reasons that Holly was being yelled at was her fault.
Holly stood straight as a board as her parents yelled at her, her arms at her side, fists clenched resisting the strong urge to slap both her parents and then punch her sister but she knew that doing that would only make things worse and she had plans for this evening.
After her mother finished the last of the lecture, Holly slowly nodded, "Yes mother, I understand, I won't do it again." With that she turned and walked to her room being careful not to slam the door behind her.
She ran and dove onto her small bed, pressing her face into her pillow, she fliped around onto her back and stares up at the ceiling, watching the ceiling fan spinning around and around on the low setting. Outside her room she could hear her sister talking to her parents, she wished that she had better hearing so she could hear the actual words and not the low mumbles she was hearing now. She sits up and swings her legs over the side of the bed, hearing the voices dim, that was never a good sign when Sara was talking to her parents then the feared noise, a loud, horrifing shriek that came from their mom. To Holly, the sound was the worst sound that existed not even the shrill unbareably cries of a banshee could amount to her mother's shreik. She listened to the heavy sounds of her mother's footsteps boom down the hall towards Holly's room. She excepted her door to fly open revealing an enraged parental unit with a smirking Sara behind. But, instead the footsteps ceased just outside the door, clanging and banging was heard outside her door.
"This will teach you for insulting her mother you little twerp!" yowled her mother as she boarded up Holly's bed room door to keep her inside.
Holly sprung to her feet and flies to her door, she turned the door handle and pushed, the door wouldn't open. Again she tried to push the door open with her weight but to no avail. "What did I do?! I didn't insult you! I swear!"
"Mom did you hear her just now?! Now she's lying!" the nasaly voice of her big sister drilled through her door.
Holly pounded on the door with her fist, "Please, I never did anything! What about the Halloween party I was going to go to tonight? Please just let me go to it!"
Her mom laughed, "No, this will just add to your punishment. Now you can think of how horrible you are. Anyways, who would invite a miserable little scab to a party?"
Holly growled then pounded her her door in anger, "This isn't fair! I didn't do anything to deserve this!"
Holly stoped her yelling hearing them leave, she screamed in anger and kicked her door before going and falling on her bed her face in her pillow. She remained there motionless.
She slowy rose off her bed, her cheeks stained with tears, she looked over at her clock, 6:45PM. She wiped clean her cheeks, and stormed over to her closet her eyes burning with rage and determination. She grumbled softly outloud as she dug out old costume makeup, "I'm not going to let them treat me like this anymore! I can't stand this anymore, if mom was still alive, dad would never have married that whore and would have never changed, I wouldn't have gotten that witch that is my sister."
She then pulled out her halloween costume, she was glad that she only worked on it late at night and never let her family see it, now it would be her disguise on the streets. She quickly changed into it then sat infront of her mirror with the holloween makeup then pulled a nylon cap over her head concealing her short blonde hair. As she applied the makeup with the quality that would be used in the best Hollywood films, she thought back when she was in the makeup crew in the school's drama club.
Finally she finished, she looked like she was a rotting corpse which was excellent. She went over to her closet again and got down a wig and placed it on her head followed by a top hat. Perfect, she could hardly recognize herself. She sliped on her purple and black striped stockings and black hard toed shoes. She grinned in satisfaction of her costume as she grabbed her cane and admired herself in her mirror. Her costume consisted of a black corset, a white ghostly looking frilly skirt, a black texedo like overcoat with tails, striped stocking, a striped can and her black shoes that looked like black cats. She grabbed an old cloth bag and stuffed some clothes inside. She walked over to her window and opened it, she looked down, she was on the second story of her house, no trees or terrices to climb down, she would just have to jump down. She climbed out onto the roof and crept to the edge, she looked down; it wasn't that far down she jumped off of trees in the park that was higher up then this, she closed her eyes and jumped. She landed, her knees popped from the pressure of landing on the hard ground. Holly took one last glance at her house before running down the street, past the trick or treaters that were just starting to come out of their houses.
