Galloping grape groundhogs! It's Halloween time in Cavern City.
I like trick-or-treating, but not for the candy. I like it because when I'm wearing a costume, I can walk all over town and nobody knows it's me—not even Jacin.
Jacin Means is a terror who just happens to be in the fifth grade with me. He pesters me constantly at school and everywhere else for that matter. At least on Halloween night, I can walk right past him and he'll never know it's me. I wish I could do that every day.
The only problem is Mom will insist I drag Mica around with me on Halloween night. Having him with me is a dead give-away. Mica is particularly short for his age, and even if he's in costume, most people here in Cavern City will know it's him. A thinking person would realize that I am probably the one with Mica, but I'm counting on Jacin not being a thinking person. He rarely thinks.
I'll let you know how it goes . . .
