(Ok hi people. I have some very bad news. My stories that I write are on my school laptop. They are taking our laptop's away soon because It's near the end of our school year. Some of you think this is no big deal, but I don't have the right application on my home computer to post things. So I don't know what I'm going to do during summer vacation. But I'll think of something. But this may be the last thing I update so I wanted to post something special that everyone will love. -Alicefan1)
(Lock, Shock, and Barrel are about 17, 18 years old in this story, just so you know.)
Chapter 1: The Other World
"What do you want to do?" Lock was sitting upside down on our couch, his hair an inch from the floor, and tail swinging in a steady rhythm. Barrel was leaning on the wall. His knees bending up to his chin. I was sitting on the other couch lying on my back with my head leaning on the arm.
"I don't know. What do you wanna do?" Barrel mumbled. Halloween had ended about three days ago. The town was quiet and there was nothing to do. All the pranks, jokes, plans, trick-or-treating, and other fun things had been done Halloween and there was no things left to do. "I don't know. What do you wanna do?"
"I don't kn-"
"Shut up!" I yelled. "You two have been doing this for over ten minutes now." They were silenced for about four seconds. "Barrel, should jump off a cliff." Lock gave a weak smile. "At least it'd be more fun then this." Barrel mumbled again closing his eyes.
"Did we mess with the Mayor?"
"Go though Jack's house?"
"Drain the fountain?"
"We smashed the pumpkins in the pumpkin patch didn't we?"
"Did we go though a holiday door?" Lock and I lifted our heads. Eye's gleaming. We didn't go though a holiday door during Halloween. We forgot to go though a holiday door!
"Barrel that's it!" Lock turned up and jumped to his feet. Barrel lifted his head. "What's it?"
"We didn't go though a holiday door!" Barrel sat up and smiled. "Yes finally something to do! To the elevator!"
We all rushed to the elevator door pushing each other out of the way. Trying to get there first. Then we were pushing to get out. Lock tripped and almost went over the broken bridge. We ran up the path until we reached the beginning of the forest. By then no one had any breath to run.
"Which door should we go in?"
"I think we should go in the one with the egg."
"We went in that door a long time ago, idiot." Lock hissed. "Well we've gone in most of them before. Including the Human World." I pointed out. Lock shrugged. "Good point."
When we reached the circle of trees we looked at all the ones we hadn't gone though before. Then we came up with a problem. "We've gone though them all!" Barrel cried and sank to his knees.
"No this one." Lock called from behind the Halloween tree. We ran over to him and stared at disbelieve. Behind or door was another tree. Instead of a holiday craved into it there was a orange and black swirled circle. The door knob set off to the side.
"What is it?" Barrel asked. "It doesn't look like a holiday."
There was a sign hanging on the knob.
Do not under any reason go though this door.
If you do your world may be switched forever.
Your live becomes theirs, and theirs become yours.
-Jack, Pumpkin King
"I wonder was Jack doesn't want any body in here..." I thought out loud. "That's what I'm going to find out."
Lock knocked off the sign and jumped in quickly followed by Barrel. I rolled my eyes and jumped in.
