“Aunt Mabel,” said Scrunchie, seeing his 87 year old aunt, sitting at the dining room table with her sewing machine. “What are you making?”
“I am making you a Halloween costume,” said Aunt Mabel.
“I don’t need a Halloween costume,” said Scrunchie.
“What do you mean?” asked Aunt Mabel. “Please don’t tell me that you have changed your mind about the Halloween party. You are still going, right?”
Yes,” said Scrunchie. “I am still going. I don’t need a costume though. I will go just the way I am.”
“Are you sure?” asked Aunt Mabel. “You know someone might laugh at you or poke fun at you.”
“What is better than a monster on Halloween?” asked Scrunchie. “And, not just any monster but a monster that walks all scrunched over.”
Scrunchie was referring to the fact that he was a monster and he was also referring to the fact that he walked with his head to the ground and his bottom stuck up in the air.
“Yes,” said Aunt Mabel. “I suppose you are right. However, what about people laughing at you, though?”
“I don’t think I need to worry about anyone laughing at me,” said Scrunchie. “It will be Halloween and people will be looking for the unusual.”
“Yes,” said Aunt Mabel. “That is another good point.”
Aunt Mabel put her sewing machine away. She got herself ready for the Halloween party.
“Let’s go,” said Aunt Mabel.
Scrunchie and Aunt Mabel had a lot of fun at the party.
“Everyone loved your costume,” said Aunt Mabel, after the party.
“Yes,” said Scrunchie. “They all thought it was brilliant.”
“Nobody laughed or made fun of you,” said Aunt Mabel.
“No,” said Scrunchie. “They didn’t.”
