"Allow me," said Glenor. She clenched both hands except for her middle finger on each one, and waved them with such intensity that Zoc was surprised.
"Baby, you're the greatest," said Steve Brown, and both hugged and kissed each other in the back seat.
"Oh, gross," said Jimmy. "Hey, what about Mitch?"
"I'm sorry Jimmy. Mitch didn't make it," said Mike Mercury. A monkey's high pitched laughter came from the trunk. Mitch popped open the trunk lid and smiled at them. "Mitch," cried Jimmy, hugging him.
"Thank god they didn't kiss," said Zoc to himself.
"Well, I suppose this is a happy ending then?" said Mike Mercury. "Except of course we never got to Zarin and those damn Shudderites. Guess that will have to wait for the sequel next year," he laughed.
"Zombos!" cried Zoc. "What about Zombos?"
Steve Brown's cell phone started ringing. "Hello? It's for you." He handed the phone to Zoc.
"Yes? Who?! I don't believe this. After all this... yes, yes, soon!" He closed the cell phone with a crack.
"Who was it?" asked Steve Brown.
"That was Zombos," said Zoc, steaming. "He's back at the mansion. The Shudderites let him go days ago. After they realized he wasn't me, they threw him a party and flew him home. He said to hurry up or we'll be late for the Monster Mash party at the mansion. I can't believe this."
"Well, then, I better step on it," said Mike Mercury.
"Hey, do me a favor and drop me off by the UPS truck," said Steve Brown. "Want to help me finish my deliveries?" he asked Glenor. She giggled, then nodded yes.
"Say, what are you guys going as for the Halloween party?" asked Steve Brown.
"Pirates," said Glenor and Zoc together. "What else?"
And off they sped into the Halloween night.
