Chapter 4

The man got up and groaned, “Ugh, my head!” He looked around. “Where am I?” he said to himself. Then it all came flooding back. His head cleared of all confusion, he sat up quickly. “I have to find them” he muttered. He then got to his feet and ran toward the wreckage HIS vines had created. The man surveyed the scene and his eyes rested on the unconscious police officers. ”Better to be armed” He said to himself. Then he plucked a gun from the officer’s belt and charged out of the alley

Ben, Kellie, and Sonya rushed to Sonya’s van. Sonya drove, while Ben and Kellie sat in the back. Without even buckling her seatbelt, Sonya stepped on the gas. Ben and Kellie were thrown back in their seats. As they drove onto the main road, the trio saw that the road was crowded with people. The van swerved around, trying to dodge opposing traffic while at the same time trying to find refuge…

Sonya drove the van into a parking lot of an old hotel. She turned to Kellie, “We need to talk.” Sonya went into the hotel and rented a room for one night. They all went up to the room. Sonya asked to hear their story from the beginning. After this they decided to look for clues at the graveyard. They slept the whole night and woke up early. Then they headed to the graveyard.

At the graveyard they searched the whole area. Then Kellie shouted, “I found something!” She pointed to the back of the man’s grave. There it said “To stop the curse lure me here at midnight.” They were all silent for a minute. Sonya then said, “We have to get the pumpkin man here to this exact spot at midnight.”
“How are we going to do that?” asked Ben. Sonya said” We have to find the man and somehow lure him here. One of us will have to act as bait.” Sonya said, “I think that should be me.”

Kellie and Ben were about to protest, but thought better of it. Sonya said “We have to find him and lead him back here by 11:30 PM.”
