*At the Squidman residence, there are a lot of squid-themed Halloween decorations outside. Inside the house, The Squid-Man is seen at the table, which is covered in newspapers, and has a pumpkin on top. There’s a knife on one side of the pumpkin, and he looks into the camera before grabbing the knife.*
*Working away at the top of the pumpkin, El Hijo Del Padre Del Calmar finally manages to take the top off of the large vegetable. He goes to the giant spoon drawer and pulls out a giant spoon. Taking the giant spoon to the table, he starts working away at the inside of the pumpkin, scooping out the seeds and miscellaneous goop he finds, scooping them into a bowl that I forgot to mention was also on the table. By the way, there’s a bowl on the table. There, now I’ve mentioned it.*
*Having scooped out the entirety of the pumpkin, save for possibly a few strands, he puts the pumpkin lid back on and starts carving the pumpkin a face. If this was a person it would be a horrifying scene, but luckily it’s not, it’s a pumpkin. He starts by giving the pumpkin two triangular eyes. Y’know, the normal eye shape. He then moves on to the nose. Another triangle. The human face has a lot of triangles, or so I’m told. And finally the mouth. He makes it look like the has a lot of pointed teeth. Or maybe those are just triangles, maybe this pumpkin’s mouth is just full of triangles.*
*After the very triangular face has been cut, The Squid-Man picks up the pumpkin and heads towards his front door. Opening said front door, he steps outside onto his front porch, placing the pumpkin onto a small table he has out there. It’s made of metal, with a glass top. He goes inside to grab a candle and some matches, but when he comes out he looks at the face he carved and sighs. He takes a look at it from different angles, then get an idea!*
*Running inside, we hear a bunch of clutter and debris clattering to the ground, and finally he comes back outside with a spare squid mask. He opens the top of the Jack-O-Lantern, placing the candle inside and lighting it, then puts the top back on, before covering the whole thing with a squid mask, which is illuminated by the candle inside. Turning to the camera, our cephalopodic friend gives a thumbs-up in celebration of his creation.*
Squid-Man: I am a squid.

It’s been a weird couple of weeks.
Things happened with Sierra’s father, then everything that happened with Malachi so Lachlan was in the foulest of moods...
Which poor Morgan didn’t think was possible but she found herself in a very hostile situation. The whole time it was like walking on eggshells in fear of one of them blowing up. Lach never did, he mostly kept to himself, occasionally checking on Sierra, who was busy putting the newbs through the workout of their life.
All but 2 quit.
“Ey, Morgs!” Miles' voice rang out from the other end of her cell as she stayed hidden in a corner.
She immediately pulls her phone from her ear for a moment, “SHHHH, must you always be so loud?”
He snickers, “It’s a gift. What’s got you all uptight?”
She looks over her shoulder and hides in a corner under the stairwell, “Trying to stay a bit hidden right now. Things down here in Orlando are a little....awkward right now. I don’t know what to do or say around either of them. Sierra is scary enough, add in what your crazy ex did to Lach’s brother...it’s like being at ground zero of World War 3.”
“Well the good thing is your people have been on the right side of at least the first 2.”
Morgan just sighs, and deadpans, “Very funny.”
“Just keep working your ass off. Si and Lach are not monsters...well...Lach is not a monster...” with the amusement beaming from Miles’ voice
“I’m convinced Si has been reincarnated from Joan of Arc herself. She scares me sometimes.”
“She scares a lot of people. Myself included. So why did you call?”
She sighs for a moment and looks around before spitting out, “I was wondering if maybe I could maybe come up a couple days early before the whole show at Cedar Point, maybe take over my old room....”
Miles doesn’t even hesitate, “Sure!”
Morgan looks at her phone for a moment, “Are...Are you sure? What about your girlfriend?”
“Becca won’t be there, neither will I actually. We’re actually about to board a train and head to Philly for the weekend.”
Morgan almost looks sad but relieved at the same time, “OH!”
“Yeah, so what I’ll do is throw a text to Alex, let him know you’ll be in town if you are up for it, you can get some training there before you head to Cedar Point.”
“Will you be there?” Morgan says hopefully,
There’s a pause as we hear announcements in the background where he’s at, “There’s a chance of it. Been a while since I’ve been on a good coaster.” he laughs, “I mean besides the one that we ride constantly in our actual lives.”
Morgan rolls her eyes and just simply says, “Preach.”
“BAKER!” Sierra’s voice rings out.
“OHHHH Someone is in trouble...” Miles says in a singsong tone.
Morgan grumbles, “Shut up, gotta go.”
“Give her a hug from me...and then run like fuckin’ hell.”
Morgan just shakes her head, “You are such a cock, you know that?”
“Love you too, brat. See ya in a few days.”
“Ciao.” She finishes off before hanging up the phone and stepping out from under the stairwell and comes face to face with Sierra. She shifts awkwardly on her feet for a moment, before she holds out her phone, “Miles’ sends his regards.”
Sierra just glares and motions to the ring.
She’s about to bump her ass off.
“I don’t know what was scarier....” Morgan says walking through the illuminated main stretch of Cedar Point that is opened for their Halloweekends, “An irritated World Champion, or that Blood on the Bayou that I just went through.”
She stops and smirks at the camera, “What, did you honestly think I would say Squid-Man? Sorry...THE Squid-Man? Cute, but I’ve seen uglier calamari on a plate...”
“I will admit, this whole show is a great idea. I have always heard about this place but never really got to experience it til now and there are some pretty creepy things going on around here and having to take on Squid-Man, while it doesn’t rank high at all, is well...the little ones should have fun.” a scream from the big green coaster in the front of the park, known as the Raptor roars as it completes it’s first loop, “Nothing like kicking the sky. And that’s what I intend on doing. I’m going to keep kicking away at the sky til I can get a breakthrough. And I can feel it, I am so close and you Squiddy....well...you’re just another step up til I can get that high.”
She turns the corner and makes her way to the Fast Pass line, “Til then...I’m in the need for a little speed.”
