1 Dragon Sid
     Once upon a blue moon, nine-year-old Edther Lyndon joins the last day of Halloween in Spooksville for his chance in trick-or-treat. He puts on his black cape, puffs his face white with flour, and pulls on his socks and boots to get set and ready for his candy!

    "Eddy! Bring these with you," calls Mrs. Lyndon, Edther's mom, handing him a plastic pumpkin basket and a pair of plastic vampire fangs. Eddy gets them with a kiss to his mom on the cheek and goes out of home, the wind blowing past his way. "And don't go to the house on the last block."

    Eddy runs with quick feet and knocks on every house down the blocks to collect candies from every door of the house in the neighborhood, yet no one has given him treats. They will either say, "Stop knocking on here askin' for candies with your fenced teeth!" or "Candies all taken since day first, come back next year."

    Eddy walks down the road, his head hung low. Nobody has given him treats thus far. It's already the last day yet it seems candies will be the last thing that will happen today.

    He walks by the last block and pauses to see a house there. And there is nothing stopping him from spotting a Monami on the freshly mowed green grass. His lips turn upwards towards his favorite candy. He bends down to pick it up and keeps it in his pocket.

    And Eddy wonders if he can go knock on the doors and ask for treats. After all, there is nothing to lose when you try. He takes two steps up the stairs when he reads the sign on the door: Beware of dogs!

    Eddy freezes on his tracks and turns to run.

    "Stop right there!" a voice commanded.

    Eddy does so and he sees an old man approaching his direction. "You want candies right?" He nods. "Well, then, how about I give you a present?" Eddy's eyes sparkle. "Nah-uh-ah, if you're so kind enough to exchange that candy in your pocket."

    Eddy wiggles his fingers down his pockets and pulls out the Monami candy he picked from a few moments ago.

    "Yes, child. Now, will you give that to me?"

    Eddy returns the candy to his pocket. "Where's my gift?"

    "Ah, here it is!" says the old man and from the snap of his fingers lies a golden pumpkin seed in between his thumb and forefinger. "A gift that is presented only once in a blue moon."

    Eddy wrinkles his forehead. "Blue moon? I haven't seen one before."

    "This gift is rarely given or never at all, child," tells the old man and holding it out to Eddy's open palm adds, "so you must take good care of this."

    "How do I do it, Mister?"

    "As soon as you arrive at your house, bury this in your backyard and water it. Then wait for tomorrow to come," replies the old man, closing Eddy's palm. "Till then, Eddy, go home now. Just you be obedient and patient. The perfect time will come."

    The four o'clock church bell rings and Eddy looks up and sees the orange tint of sunset.
