Trevor was sitting on a bench on the Verge City waterfront, wearing a tuxedo. He was writing something on his journal.
"Gina Zabinski is the love of my life. She is the wind beneath my wings. She is the piece to my puzzle." He writes in his journal, also speaking it out loud.
Suddenly Gina walks over to him. She is wearing a beautiful white gown.
"Oh, Trevor. That is the sweetest thing I've ever heard." She says, making this seem more and more like a cheesy Spanish soap opera. Trevor leans closer to Gina as they begin to make out.
It turns out it was all just Gina's dream. But it feels like it's real, because she's making out with the mask. She wakes up and realizes what she's doing. She sees the mask close to her face and screams.
"Oh my god." She says to herself. "What happened?"
She doesn't believe what the mask did to her last night. It turned her into a boy crazy cartoon like freak, not the shy girl that she's always been. She also got payback on Aaron, something she always wanted to do for a while. She convinces herself that it all was just a dream. She goes downstairs, taking the mask with her. Aaron is sitting on the kitchen table while Brenda is making breakfast. Aaron is still paranoid from Gina's antics from the last night. Gina, putting the mask back on the bookcase, overhears their conversation.
"Mom, I swear. Gina was really doing all this stuff. She even came out of the TV." He tries to tell his mom.
"Honey, you were just having a bad dream." Brenda tells him, thinking that is the case.
Aaron notices Gina standing in the doorway. He screams and runs away. Gina doesn't even know let alone remember why he's scared of her.
"What's up with Aaron?" Gina asks Brenda.
"He had a nightmare about you." Brenda tells her, pouring a cup of coffee. "Said you came out of the TV, like the girl from that scary movie."
Things suddenly clicked in Gina's head. Everything that happened last night was actually real. Gina getting payback on Aaron, the tricks she pulled at the Bowling Alley, and even that kiss on the cheek by Trevor. Gina decides to play along and act like nothing even happened.
"He's crazy. I wouldn't hurt him." Gina tells her mother.
"I know. I gotta talk to him about watching scary movies home alone. Don't you know what they do to kids these days?" Brenda tells Gina.
"Maybe you're right. You remember what happened when I watched The Exorcist. Trust me, that wasn't pretty." Gina says.
"Alright, I gotta go to work." Brenda says, giving Gina a kiss before she leaves. " Don't go near Aaron today, alright?"
"Ok, mom." Gina replies. "Love you. Bye."
Gina runs upstairs, up to her room. She starts to think about the last night. But she realizes something else isn't right. She just can't remember what.
Meanwhile, Loki is looking for his mask. His longcoat isn't the perfect clothing for summer weather, but he doesn't care. All he wants is his mask. He wants to find the mask and end it's antics once and for all. He's in a field at the Verge City playground, where he thinks he buried the mask. But he actually buried the mask at the Zabinski residence, way before their neighborhood was built.
"I could've sworn it was here." He tells himself. "At least, I thought it was."
Suddenly, something hits him in the head. He screams in pain. Suddenly he looks behind himself. He notices a soccer ball. He picks it up. 2 little boys, no older than 8 run up to him. Turns out they kicked a ball at his head by mistake.
"Hey mister." Says one of the boys "Can we have our ball back?"
"You know what, forget the ball." He tells the kids. "Do you wanna see a magic trick?"
The kids are excited, thinking he's some sort of Magician. Loki suddenly and dramatically turns into his evil form, like at the museum in Edge City. The kids run away in fear. All the other kids in the playground run away too. Loki is already finished his transformation, but everyone is gone from the playground.
"Hey, you forgot your ball!" he says in a deep creepy voice as the kids run away.
Meanwhile, Gina was sitting at the window, watching Trevor just work out. She wanted to tell him about the mask, but she didn't know what would happen. Would he pass it off as some sort of joke? She decided to act like nothing ever happened that night and just go with the flow. Gina walks outside and goes to Trevor's yard. He's lifting one weight at a time, a Foo Fighters song blasting on his CD player. Gina pauses the CD mid song. Trevor finally notices Gina.
"Hey. What's up?" he asks.
"Nothing." Gina replies "So how was last night?"
"It was good." He tells her. "But I got a question."
"What is it?" Gina asks, getting a little nervous. She didn't want to make a fool of herself telling him some old mask turned her into that freak the night before.
"Why were you acting the way you were at the bowling alley last night? And why was your face all green?" he asks.
Gina doesn't know what to say to Trevor.
"I don't really know if I should tell you." She tells him, but she gets an idea. "Why don't I show you?"
"I can't today. I'm going somewhere with the boys." He replies. "But tomorrow would be better."
"Alright. I gotta go get ready for my job at the daycare anyway." She says. "I'll see you later."
"Ok. Sounds good."
Gina walks away, but she suddenly remembers one last detail about that night: The kiss.
"Wait, I have something to ask you." She says.
"When you kissed me, did that mean we were…" Gina says, but stops mid sentence, almost getting embarrassed.
"Boyfriend and girlfriend?" Trevor says. "I like you, but I need to know you better before we get into that stuff."
"Alright." Gina says. "I'll see you later."
Gina walks away, with mixed feelings. She found out Trevor actually likes her, but she felt like a weirdo for bringing it up. But at least she got what she wanted. And she couldn't wait to show him the mask.
Later that night, Aaron was in his room, watching The Toxic Avenger Part III, the intro scene where the title character erases a henchman's face on a tape eraser in a video store. He got over what Gina did, but he still kinda didn't feel right about what happened. His mom passed it off as a nightmare, but it was real as anything. He couldn't stop thinking about it. Aaron paused the movie and went downstairs to get a snack. His mom and dad were asleep, so he creeped down the stairs to be quiet. But walking past the bookshelf, he sees something that startles him. It's just that old mask.
"Holy crap." He said to himself. "That thing is creepy."
Aaron puts the mask back on the couch putting it on it's face. A few minutes later after eating some leftover pasta from dinner the other night, he walks back upstairs. But as he passes the couch, something catches his eye. Did that mask just glow? He picks the mask up just to see if it was really happening. The mask glows again. Aaron puts the mask slowly to his face, sort of creeped out by the mask. It jumps out of his hands and onto his face. Aaron tries to get the mask off, but it sticks on, the mask growing to the back of his head, covering his shaggy hair. He tries not to scream, but he can't resist it. Suddenly, he twists and turns into a tornado. This lasts for 10 seconds, then the spinning comes to a stop. But now, Aaron was wearing a red suit with grey hexagon patterns, with a matching tie. His head was bald and lime green.
