As the White Howler descended upon our heroes in the forest, they responded quickly ... by running!
Keep it up, Gussie -- if we fall, Bertie will never have his chance! Reggie gasped aloud.
As the ghost moved swiftly over the ground, Bertie made a flying leap and snagged the ghost's bedsheet.
With a shriek of fright, a Jack o' Lantern tumbled from beneath and leaped away into the forest.
The Ghost of Halloween Past? suggested Gussie. Bertie fumbled with the sheet.
Now's not the time, boys -- not if we're going to snag a Jack o' Lantern in time for Halloween!
Right. Bertie, let's all get under that sheet and sneak back to the patch. As for Gussie here, I think it's time he returned to his old football days in high school...we've got a little surprise for the pumpkins.
