The Last Party

By KookyParty

Mystery / Adventure

Untitled Chapter


The fall light crept through the trees as the large park, Six Flags Great Adventure, was at its opening. As sun began to control all light through the land, six male ghouls wereheading down the lane past the Ferris Wheel. In order, there was Zackary, Jeremy, Johnathan, Rob, Otto, and Cyle (Or preferred Kyle in the right spelling).

Zackary looked as if he was a rock star in life, with the black and white spotted head band and the sprawled black hair. It pretty much explained it all when he would carry around his "precious" zigzag guitar with a strap zipped around his shoulder. But he didn't since it was a small stroll around the park with his ghoul buddies.

Jeremy was Zackary's so called "brother" as he stood close to him, but to be honest, he was not. They had all the same personalities so the Doctor split them with each other. He had blue curled hair down to his shoulder blades, and always had a small butcher knife that lay in his pocket for protection. Usually there were intruders that roamed the park, but a weak knife like that wouldn't do that much damage.

Johnathan was called the craziest of them all who named all the weirdest jokes and puns, especially when he would go to all crazy mode. He had blackish brown hair that spread in every direction, as if he had the worst bad hair day one could ever have. He always had a smile on his face, even if he was in a blue mood, he always cheered himself up. But rumors spread about him that he was kept in the Insane Asylum, across from Ghoulmaster's Castle until he escaped with the Doctor's help.

Rob, by Johnathan's side, is one and the only one of John's partners. He did every great thing for him, even if John didn't say "thank you" or "I apologize," he went with anything John had to say for him. He had black hair, along with a top hat, and acted just like John as well. Nothing of his past was remembered, nor if he had siblings or not, but he just enjoyed being a ghoul that's for sure.

Otto, far aside from the others, was the shyest. He would never talk to guests or speak of his past to anyone, since he did think it was a bit terrifying. He had grey curly hair and a silver striped top hat just like his clothing, and black freckles that sprung from his cheeks.

The crazed one was the first to break the silence as the stroll continued. "So, what we gonna do know since we have nothing else to do and nothing to walk to? Huh? Get it? We're walking right now but we're walking to nothing but a wall!" He then hit his back against the brown blocked wall of the arcade they came across.

Otto giggled a bit at the comment he has given, but Jeremy interrupted his bits of laughter. "You kidding me? Cause of you trying to-"

"Cheer ya up!" Johnathan interrupted, jumping in front of Jeremy with a happy squeal. He grasped Jeremy's shoulder and pulled him close, arm to arm. "Just look at the world that's waiting for us out there.. The sky and the ground, water and fire!" Johnathan yelled, waving his arms as if he tried to show something off.

"The only thing I see are coasters and a ground.. I think that's enough.." Jeremy rolled his eyes at Johnathan's impression as he walked back to Zack's side. "And don't make a Last Airbender act.. It's weird!" A shiver went down his spine as he thought of it.

"Let's get going then before the Doctor or Ghoulmaster yells at us again.. We can't let that happen or Ghoulmaster would probably try and burn your arse off again, Cyle.." Zack sighed as he slowly turned his head to Cyle as he pouted. "Right, or would you want that again?" He smirked evilly.

"Yea yea, I get it.. Please just don't remind me, I could still remember a slight pain.." Cyle turned his head away, sticking his tongue out. But Zackary was pretty much right, he would hate that to happen again.

"So then what are we waiting for? A pizza man or something? Come on!" Johnathan joked around, turning around to run towards their home stage, likewise, the Dead Man's Party stage. He turned around as he ran backwards, looking at Cyle with a mischievous look. "Hey, Cyle! Why don't you stay behind? Ghoulmaster would love to chase after you again!" He laughed, as everyone else busted in laughter as well. Except for of course Cyle.

"That ain't funny, John!" Cyle growled, then took a look over John's shoulder as he was about to crash into the wall of the Batman ride. "See you later then!"

"What do you mean?" Johnathan cocked his head, then realizing something. "God damn it.." He then made an "oof!" sound when he hit the cement wall with his back, sliding down onto his bottom and sighed in embarrassment.

The other's laughter joined together from Johnathan's mistake as they finally reached the stage, outside the black metal bars. Cyle rested his chin onto the flat bar's top, thanking the lord that Ghoulmaster wasn't there already. As from the others, they headed backstage without Cyle or Johnathan, who was still trying to release the pain from his back. As they got to the dressing room, where most of the girls were relaxing, the others stopped in shock of the two who stood in the middle: The Doctor and Ghoulmaster. Otto squeaked in fear, trying to turn around quietly to not be noticed, but Ghoulmaster caught him from the corner of his eye.

"Not another step, Otto DiStefano.." Ghoulmaster spoke as he turned his head towards the shy ghoul as he turned back around slowly. "Where do you think you're going?" He took a few steps away from the Doctor and close to the male ghouls.

Otto stuttered in fear, turning all the way back around. He scratched the back of his head, trying to think of a lying answer, which he was horrible at. "I.. Um. Was gonna check on Johnathan..?" Otto shut his eyes tight, thinking Ghoulmaster wasn't going to take that answer directly.

"Why..? Shouldn't he be back with you or Rob? Or did he just damage himself again?" Ghoulmaster asked, not amused at Otto's innocence.

"No.. He just.. He's outside.." Otto finally gave an answer. "And yes.. He probably hurt himself by not looking where he was going.."

Ghoulmaster sighed in disappointment, looking back at the Doctor and back to Otto. He pushed Otto aside with his strength and out the door to go look out for the crazed teen, Johnathan.

Johnathan, on the other hand, pushed himself from the ground and leaned against the Batman ride sign. He spotted Cyle outside from the stage and sitting onto the bars. John shook his head, pushing himself off and walking over to the water spraying machine as the sun gazed over him. It was pretty hot out, maybe in the 75's, which is new for September. He came across the rectangular figure of the water spraying machine, and snapped the green "push" button. Nothing happened.

Johnathan stayed for a moment in confusion and sighed. "This usually works! We'll need one of those mortal repairmen then.." He tried one more time as he snapped the green button again, and finally it sprayed water into the atmosphere. "Finally! But that was only two times! Eh, Imma miracle worker.." He refreshed himself with the water, fixing his hair as it was sprayed with water from the machinery.

Johnathan finished his "work" with the water sprayer, feeling more refreshed then he ever was. He sprung out his hair again as it dried in the sun immediately, walking past the Cake Diner and to Skull Mountain. He rested his arms on the blue painted bars which held people from falling over into the "not so-filled" water tank. He sighed in relief to get away from any troubles and rested his chin on his arms. For a few minutes he felt relaxed from dancing all day, but a ringing noise visited his ears. He looked up quickly, jerking around to see where it came from.

"Meghan, if this is another trick, it's not working! Nope! Nope! Nope!" Johnathan smirked, blowing off the noise, but it only came louder as minutes passed.

Johnathan soon was at the point where he had to cover his ears, whimpering in pain from the ringing noise. He pounded the bars in pain, yelling to make it stop. John whimpered in pain, knowing it only came from the direction he was in. He glanced up at the now black sky, which he knew was always blue.

"W-What..? What's happening?" Johnathan kept looking up at the dark atmosphere, seeing a light purple orb coming straight at him. Every second it got bigger and bigger, until it was the time where it came in front of him. The orb hit him hard as a bowling ball, at approximately eight feet high.

Johnathan was dazed out for a few, until he actually passed out from both the pain and dizziness. By just the side of Skull Mountain where the orb hit him, it left like a bomb mark on the side of black texture and of smoke dancing in the air. No one would find John out in that mess, with all the smoke and lights of fire in the air. It was past Wishing Hour to roam by themselves, so people would be curious until it was all over for him. Until someone approached him, the shade of black and purple that shadowed over Johnathan's limp body. The figure smiled weekly, bending down to Johnathan's poor soul.

"So, we meet again, Teeling..."
