"Hello, I'm Kelly Skellington. Well, that hasn't always been my name. I used to be called Kelly Nightmoon. But that was before I went to the greatest place in this universe and together with it's king Jack, I saved it from great danger. A place called Halloween Town. This is my story..."
It was close to Halloween. As usual, Kelly decided to visit the Town of Halloween as it was her job to make sure everything worked out as it name is Kelly. She is a "traveler". She can travel through worlds and her duty is to make sure the holidays are properly planned. Her looks were close to skin was a pale greyish blue, though. She had long, curlied, dark red hair. Her eyes were dark green..
She arrived at Spiral Hill and walked to Halloween Town. As always, She would talk to the Mayor and he would tell her exactly what was going to happen this year. But today, she also had to announce something special.
The Mayor stood at the gate, waiting for her.
"Oh, Miss Nightmoon. Nice to see you again. We were just about to-"
"Silence! I have to talk to Jack. Where is that skeleton guy?" She shouted.
"Oh, well-" the mayor muttered. He was obviously scared of her, as were most people. He gulped. "He is...there!" he screamed and pointed at a skinny, tall Skeleton. So, that was Jack? She never had met him until this point. She only had discussed the holidays with the mayor.
"Jack, look. This is Kelly Nightmoon. She is responsible for the holidays. You heard of her, I guess?"
"Yes, I think I did. It's a pleasure to finally meet you." The skeleton responded with a wide smilde. She stared at him seriously and his smile faded.
"Mr Skellington, is it true that you tried to take over another holiday?" She asked.
"Well, to be honest, yes. It was a big mistake, though! I realized that I am the pumpkin king and don't need christmas."
"Well, that does not matter. I doubt you are worthy to be the king of Halloween anymore."
"WHAT?!" both, Jack and Mayor asked at the same time.
"No, please. Jack is a great King!" the mayor said.
"Is he? Taking over someones holiday is a crime. In fact, that all the holidays now know about each other...that was never supposed to happen."
"Please, Miss Nightmoon. I know I can do it. I'll prove to you, that I am a great King."
She looked at him and sighed.
"Well...fine. You got time until Halloween. I will stay here and keep an eye on you for the next two weeks."
"Thank you." Jack said gratefully and took a bow.
"Jack, who is that?" a voice asked. A Ragdoll had appeared behind her.
"Oh, Sal. It's Miss Kelly Nightmoon. She is going to stay with us for two weeks.
"Oh, um...alright. Hello, it's nice to-" Sally said but was interrupted.
"No, time for introductions, little miss ragdoll. Show me the room that I have to stay at and then, Jack, tell me what you got planned."
"Sorry." sally muttered and blushed.
Jack nodded. "Of course, Miss. Sally, please show Miss Nightmoon her room."
Sally just nodded and asked Kelly to follow her.
"This is it?" Kelly looked around. She was at Jacks house and inside of her new room. It was incredibly small.
"Yes, I'm so sorry, but it's our only guest room."
Kelly groaned. Then she put a smile on her face. "It will do, I guess."
Sally nodded smiling. "Now excuse me, please. I have to clean the living room and then I'll have to take care of dinner."
As soon as Sally had left, Kelly waved her hands and the room widened. The room filled with everything she needed, like a table, a closet and other things. She sat down on her bed.
It's better if they don't find out how powerful I'm.
Then she fell asleep.
