"It's coming up on Halloween again isn't it?" Royal asked Jasmine. The brown roo put her book down and responded. "Yes, should be just a couple more weeks I think. Does the lab have any celebration parties it does?" Royal smiled a rather peculiar grin "Yes, most people here in the labs show their holiday spirit one way or another. Others who don't usually don't celebrate with us, but that's fine. Everyone is always invited at least."
"That means I could bake a cake, or pies or something." The tan roo said thoughtfully. Dancer had heard this as he passed by the courtyard and stopped, then started walking towards the two girls. "Pastries for the party?" He questioned. "I'll bring some halloween salsa dip and tortillia chips." Royal smiled at him. His pepper con carne chips and dip was a very good recipie. and she always enjoyed it. "I'll bring some ham, or a turkey, or maybe a baked other member of the labs." Royal smirked. "This should be a good celebration this year. We've got lots of members."
Weeks passed and the party date quickly arrived. The black roo smiled as she opened the doors for everyone to bring in their dishes and have fun. She saw Dancer with his dip, Dara brought in a pumpkin pie, Ken had a bowl of his famous mac and cheese. All of this was followed by Jessica the Naga's vegetable tray - A dish most uncommon for predators. Jessica wasn't a vegetarian by any means but decided to change things up a bit. Next was Jamie with her lime crystal sherrys. These were all non-alcoholic, as Alcohol wasn't allowed on the RD Labs premesis. Lastly was Jasmine the roo. Royal noticed she was carrying several pies and having a bit of a time walking with them.
"Here, let me help you out with those." Royal took a few steps towards the only other roo in the building. The black roo took a couple of the pies from her and helped her bring them into the buffet area. "I wonder where Silver is at." She asked her species twin. "Ooh, I saw her a couple corridors down, hanging upside down like a bat." The slightly shorter brown roo replied. "Oh, well then she's going to miss out on these delicious looking pies. I'm going to snag one of these if it's alright with you and see if that won't get her down here." Royal picked up the white cherry pie she had carried in and headed out.
"Hanging like a bat?" Royal thought to herself. "Well she has always been the odd sleeper. Maybe if I give her a whiff of the pie she'll wake up." Royal stopped thinking to herself for a moment before getting a grin that would make even the Grinch cringe in fear. "Well, Maybe I'll give her more than a whiff. If she's sleeping, it would be the perfect time to pie her face and wake her up. yes, I'll give her a costume of albino cherry!" At that moment, Royal turned around another corner and saw her sister dangling upside down, just like a bat. Royal slowed down her steps and readied her tart-filled projectile. She was just a few steps away. She couldn't help herself, it was all too funny.
