I would like to think all that reviewed, alerted, and favorited. I promised I'd write what Lilith was doing before she ran to Rhonda's rescue and I'll add what happens after she saves her if i get enough feedback:) enjoy.
Lilith sat on a stool at her counter, cutting the candy corn into its traditional triangular shapes and hummed The Juniper Tree from a Grimms Brother's story.
When she was all done, she placed the tray into the oven and wiped off her hands.
She knew it would take a while for the candy to bake so she decided to take a stroll.
Mark had just sold his fifth jar of licorice and went back to reading his book on Witches and Werewolves. He had gotten it for the occasion and found it oddly interesting.
He sighed and looked out the window to see everyone laughing and crowding the streets partying and having fun. Unlike him, he had to work.
"All work and no play, makes Mark a dull boy." Came a teasing voice he knew all too well.
"Lilith!" He slapped a hand over his heart and leaned up to see the girl.." You scared the shit out of me."
"I brought you these." She smiled, and placed a jar of candy corn on the counter." I made this not too long ago."
It was the jar she made before her latest batch still baking at home.
"Just for me?" He smiled.
She winked at him.
"Trying to fatten me up by attacking my sweet tooth?" He flirted.
"Oh yeah." She walked behind the counter and sat on it." I plan to eat you all up."
"Trick 'r ' treating with some little punks." She replied bitterly." I almost attempted to say "no" but I never have been able to."
"Well don't worry." He said.
"That's useless to say." She laughed." Besides, why are you working when you could be out?"
"Boss' orders." He shrugged." Not many people have shown up yet though."
"Wanna play fact or Bullshit?" She smiled.
"Sure." He laughed." I'll go first. Falling in love produces the same high as taking cocaine."
"Hmmm." She thought for a minute." Bullshit?"
"Ok, my turn. There is a town in Nebraska with the population of 1."
"Bullshit!" He frowned.
"Fact." She smiled.
"When a woman eats chocolate she experiences the same feeling of an orgasm." He smirked.
Her lips twitched up.
"Fact." She answered and looked out the window.
"Whats wrong?" Mark asked.
"I'm just...worried." She replied.
"Two sets of twins marry and have one kid a couple, the offspring is legally cousins but genetically twin siblings."
"Fact and that's not fair you went twice." She pouted." I get two!"
"Ok. Hit me with your best shot."
"Einstein's last words died with him, his bedside nurse didn't know German."
"...bullshit?" He hesitated.
"Wrong, fact." She laughed.
All of a sudden, she felt an overwhelming feeling in her chest.
"The marble! Its been broken! "
"What?" Mark asked.
Lilith knew she had to act quickly and finally get to the point of why she was here. She took a deep breath and slid off the counter and onto Mark's lap, straddling him.
"Fact or Bullshit...I love you."
He laughed and answered the latter.
"Wrong again." She whispered into his ear. And leaned back to softly kiss him.
He felt a spark when she kissed him, but when he opened his eyes a second later, she was gone and he was back to leaning on the counter.
"The hell?!" He exclaimed.
