Here it is, folks! The final chapter!

The moon rose over Halloween Town…

…and, from the graveyard, someone hidden in the shadows started to sing…

"Boys and girls of every age…"

Another person took up the tune…

"Would you like to see something strange?"

A skeleton sitting on a tombstone, half concealed in the darkness, smiled slyly. "Come with us and you will see…" sang Fai."In our town of Halloween…"

"This is Halloween! This is Halloween!

Pumpkins scream in the dead of night!

This is Halloween! Everybody make a scene!

Trick or treat 'till the neighbors gonna


It's our town! Everybody scream!

In our town of Halloween…"

Something, crouched under a bench, attempted to growl...and failed. "I am the one hiding under your bed!" chirped Mokona. "Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red!"

"I am the one hiding under your stairs!" hissed the stair monster."Fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair!"

"This is Halloween! This is Halloween!

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!"

The Vampire Brothers rose from their caskets and, in perfect harmony, sang "In this town we call home, everyone hail to the pumpkin song!"

Another vampire sprung onto the pathway wall and, outlined against the full moon, struck a pose. "In this town, don't we love it now? Everybody's waiting for the next surprise!" laughed Syaoran, and pointed. "Round that corner, man hiding in the trash can! Something's waiting now to pounce, and how you will…"

"SCREAM!" shrieked Mokona, bursting out of the trashcan, followed by the werewolf. Together, they continued into the next chorus.

"This is Halloween!

Red 'n black, slimy green!

Are you scared?

Well that's just fine!"

A witch, sharing her broomstick with a ghost, shot up from the buildings and flew over the town. "Say it once! Say it twice! Take a chance and roll the dice!" sang Sakura and the witch at the tops of their lungs. "Ride with the moon in the dead of night!"

"Everybody scream! Everybody scream!" shrieked the hanging tree.

"In our town of Halloween…" crooned the hanging men.

"I am the clown with the tear away face!" sang the Gatekeeper. Then, tearing off his face, he continued in a voice like thunder."Here in a flash and gone without a trace!"

Syaoran's voice, seemingly from nowhere, went on: "I am the 'who' when you call 'who's there?'."

"I am the wind blowing through your hair!" sang Sakura, her voice whispery.

A shadow, appearing against the moon, resolved itself into Fai. "I am the shadow of the moon at night, filling your dreams to the brim with fright!"

"This is Halloween! This is Halloween!

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

Halloween! Halloween!"

The Corpse Children, by the fountain, took a deep breath. "Tender lumplings everywhere!"

Kurogane jumped out from the shadows with a snarl, sending the children scurrying away. "Life's no fun without a good scare!" he laughed.

"That's our job, but we're not mean," crooned the Corpse Parents reproachfully as they rescued their children. "In our town of Halloween…"

"In this town, don't we love it now? Everyone's waiting for the next surprise!" sang Sally and Sakura together.

Fai, who suddenly found himself alone, looked around blankly. Then he heard the next verse, sung by Mokona…

"Skeleton Jack might catch you in the back!

He'll scream like a banshee, make you jump out of your skin!"

Fai unfortunately missed half of the last line, due to the bone rattling shriek from just behind him. He did jump, up onto the nearby fountain, and turned to see Jack Skellington, who waved and shooed him off the fountain. The citizens of Halloween Town and their guests all erupted into the square…

"This is Halloween, everybody scream!

Won't you please make way for a very special guy?"

Sakura, Syaoran, Mokona, and Fai all grouped around Jack, right and left, and bowed flamboyantly, in unison. "Our man Jack is King of the pumpkin patch!" they cried. "Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King now!"

It seemed to Jack, as he let out another ear-splitting cackle, which was met with cheers from the crowd, that his new friends seemed…not quite there. They appeared to be…fading. Turning into smoke...he saw Mokona, behind the fountain, with its mouth wide open. The creature was inhaling dramatically, creating a strange wind. But there were so many strange winds in Halloween Town that none of the others were noticing.

As he watched, Sakura waved and whispered "Happy Halloween".

"This is Halloween! This is Halloween!

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!"

"Farewell, my friends," said Jack, bowing to them. "Please, do come back for next Halloween. It'll be a scare to remember!"

"I'm afraid we can't guarantee that," said Syaoran, shaking his head.

"In this town we call home!

Everyone hail to the Pumpkin Song!"

"Well, no need!" said Jack, putting his hands on his hips. "For I am Jack Skellington, The Pumpkin King! Wherever there is a shadow in the night, wherever there is a noise with no source, just you remember that I'm keeping an eye on you!"

Fai chuckled. "We will," he said.

"Thank you very much," said Sakura, shaking his hand. "It was a pleasure, Pumpkin King. Goodbye…"

A strange, magic circle appeared in the air, and the people of Halloween Town gasped. Syaoran, Sakura,Fai, Kurogane, and Mokona waved to them all. Over the wind, Jack thought he heard a call of: "Happy Halloween!"

And then, they vanished.

"La, la-la, la, la, la, la, la-la, la, la, la, la, la-la…"
