Monster High – GFHF

Unfettered by even the faintest wisp of cloud, a large wrought-iron gate shimmered brightly in the sunshine.

The landscape was empty and eerily still, save for a few silky spider threads fluttering around the spindly black bars. Looming in the distance, just behind the fence, was the Gothic window–filled facade of Monster High. And though everything appeared just as bright and cheerful as it always did, something ominous lingered in the air— something that hinted at unfinished business.

Three shadows crept slowly toward the gate, instantly altering the barren landscape. Distorted by the sun, their arms, legs, and torsos morphed in and out of carnival-mirror caricatures. Breaking away from the pack, a long and sinewy arm reached for the fence, wrapping five fingers tightly around the bars.
