Me: Hello gourd-geous. Happy Howl-oween.
Nell: Here we go. Where is your hat?
Nell: You heard what was decided at Morning Thoughts ‘Hats must be worn at all times.’
Me: But it’s my all encasing hat and it’s ever so warm.
Nell: It needs a brim. We’ve told you this. Get a sombrero from The Cat.
Me: Why would Gully want to hypnotise me?
Nell: To gain access to The Great Mutliano of course.
Me: Where is Poppy? I haven’t seen her this morning.
Nell: She is still in bed. Yesterday was exhausting and we may need her sword skills tonight.
Me: I don’t know why Mutley doesn’t just cancel the show.
Nell: Cancel the show? The Great Mutliano is not going to bow to a Beefy.
Me: What if they come in disguise?
Nell: All visitors must show their invitations and costumes will be checked. We cannot be too careful.
Me: Yes. That ghost without saying.
Nell: Do stop.
Me: Who is on the door? Dave?
Nell: We are not going to put David on the door. He is vulnerable to mistakes.
Nell: Knitwear Wolf is head of security along with Jim and the Farm Dogs.
Me: I love Knitwear Wolf’s costume by the way. A knitted ghost. Hilarious.
Nell: Knitwear Wolf isn’t here. He’s in Torquay meeting Ron Gilbert the Great Dane. Ron is going on the door.
Me: Good. The Beefies are scared of him. That will give them pumpkin to talk about.
Nell: Wait. Where did you see the knitted ghost?
Me: Going inside the house with the morning papers. He waved. But if it isn’t Knitwear Wolf, who is it?
Nell: I have a bad feeling about this. Call for help now. Mutley is in danger.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
