“This is the best Halloween party I’ve ever been to,” Barry said.
“No bones about it,” Barbara agreed. “Look, there’s Melanie.”
“Oh my God,” Barry said. “She’s lost so much weight since we last saw her. She’s just skin and bones.”
Melanie joined the couple. “Hey, you two, do you like my costume?”
“How fitting, Melanie,” Barbara said, “that you’d dress as a wicked witch.”
“Retract your claws, Catwoman,” Melanie said.
The party’s host let out a bloodcurdling scream. “It’s almost the bewitching hour,” she announced.
“That’s our signal to head back to the cemetery until next Halloween,” Barry said.
