PART 3 Vickie's Haunted Vintage Tuesday night.
(Almost closing time)
Mulan: Your decor is amazing, where did Vickie get all these wonderful artifacts?
This is a particularly strong dragon, for protection and auspicious good fortune.
Zoe: That's what Vickie said. I'm Zoe and you are....?
Mulan: I'm Mulan, nice to meet you. I see you are from Canada. I did some graduate work in Vancouver.
Zoe: Oh, I'm just from Toronto, barely Canada. You know about Chinese history, then?
Mulan: Yes, I'm working at the Art Institute in the Eastern collections.
Stephen: So how ridiculous am I going to look in tights?
Doctor Ken: Ha, men in tights. Man, this has to be for a woman?
Stephen: (blushes) Yea, she's a knockout and I have it on good authority, she bought a Princess dress this morning---so I have to give this outfit a shot?
Zoe: How can I help you?
Joe: I'm looking for a leather vest with fringe and a helmet, do you have anything like that here?
Wow, this dude back here is one scary---MMM_um....guy!
Joe: Thats a really cool animatronic you got back there?
Zoe:animatronic? Oh, thanks, I can put your name on the wish list, and if something you asked for comes in, we can give you a call.
Joe: Great, thanks!
Zoe: This is a great choice for you---these pants will look great with this jacket. Very Country singer from the 80's look.
Lara: Hmmm, not really my style, but then---a little glitter and some curls, and I should be able to be completely unrecognizable. (chuckling)
Zoe: Well let me wrap this up---and you can check out.
Lara: I'll need 4 couple tickets also, and can you call me if any silver boots, size 8 come in? You're Vickie, I saw the benefit promo on ABC on Windy City Live. Great idea with all the money people spend on Halloween to steer some of it for a good cause.
Vickie: Thanks we are glad to help and thank-you for shopping here, and I will be sure to watch for silver boots. Lara, thanks for buying the extra tickets.
Zoe: Oh, darn. The lights again? (Bang-crash) Oh, what was that? Sounds like it came from the back of the store.
Vickie: I'll get the breaker, excuse me, and don't walk around until we get the lights back on.
Zoe: Vickie's going downstairs to fix the breaker, I know it's dark in here---don't worry any customers back in here?
(Zoe looks up)
Zoe: EEEEEEKKKKKK! HELP__No! (Zoe turns and runs, tangles in the carpet and falls face first in the dark)
Zoe: Ow---help---IT MOVED and something pushed me back there!
(Lara peeks around the corner)
Lara: I don't see anything strange.
There the lights are back on.
Lara: See, nothing to be worried about. You just stumbled and fell. (Lara pokes the mannequin) See, it's not alive or dead, it's just a nasty mannequin.
Lara: Granted not date material...(she chuckles).
Zoe: I suppose so. (She shoves the mannequin and it wobbles, menacingly) It still creeps me out, but thanks, Lara. And, have a great nite and I will be sure and call you about the boots.
Mulan: Just as dragons are powerful positive forces, negative entities do exist.
Zoe: (whispers to Vickie) I saw that ghoul THING raise its arm and move its head. That customer Joe asked something about animatronics. Is that THING powered by anything?
Mulan:The power of the dragon will overcome any negative forces working in this building.
Vickie: I'm sure we have just been too busy to watch what every customer does. I know you had a scare, Zoe. But everything is fine now and I'll make sure the security cameras are on from now on.
Thanks for coming Mulan, and I will have your order ready next week, the seamstress is altering your costume for you.
Mulan: Please take care, Vickie and Zoe. Negative entities feed on fear and weakness, Be strong! Good night.
Zoe: Thank you, Mulan, it's just been a long day, and we didn't even have time to eat. My mind was playing tricks on me.
Phone: Briiiiinnnng! Brinnnnnng!
Vickie: It's 8:15, Vickie's Vintage---no Haunted Vintage is now closed. Zoe it's time for some food and let's take it home, my treat.
