Every day, one student in Grade 6 was chosen to help the school concierge prepare the lunch tables.  It was a great system, perfect for such a small school.   A wall of tables in the gym were rolled up Murphy-Bed-style, saving loads of space.

Each child looked forward to being chosen because he/she got to cut class early!  First day of school Bobby’s turn. He was itching for Mr. Campbell to come and fetch him.

Bobby pulled and tugged down the first one and let out a blood-curdling scream. There, squished against the wall was Suzie, missing since last June.

“That is a seriously strange sculpture, eh, Doris?”

“Indeed, Hank.  Do you think it’s supposed to represent a real creature that once was?”

“Well, it doesn’t look like any dinosaur I’ve ever seen in museums or books!”

“I don’t know why, but it kinda gives me that ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ vibe.”

“Well, whatever it is or is supposed to represent, it gives me the heebie jeebies, Doris!”

“Excuse me”, came a silky voice; “May I help you? You seem to have wandered into my Nightmare and must pay…”

Fear coursed through their veins as they were engulfed in a cloud.
