Blue Shirt: “That movie was super scary!”
White Shirt: “It wasn’t scary—nothing scares me.”
Black Shirt: “I might be afraid of something haunted like a house or a ship.”
Blue Shirt: “You know my woods are haunted. When we moved here everyone was telling us the story of the ghost of Milly Hasenpfeffer.

Milly was a loner who liked to collect dolls. One day she just disappeared. Locals have seen her walking around with her dolls and humming lullabies.
White Shirt: “No way. People make that stuff up all the time.
Black Shirt: “I’m scared already.”

White Shirt: “There’s nothing to be afraid of. Come on. I’ll prove it.”
Blue Shirt: “I don’t know if that’s a good idea.”
White Shirt: “Come on. Even if we find her, she sounds like a nice lady who collects dolls. How bad can she be?”

Blue Shirt: “Come on I’ll back some things. We can go on an adventure in the woods.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Blue Shirt: “Oooh. Are those dolls?”
Black Shirt: “I’m creeped out.”
White Shirt: “I’m sure that’s just someone trying to scare us.”

Hum hum hum hum, hum hum hum hum…

Black Shirt: “Did you hear that?”
White Shirt: “That was you, McKenzie, wasn’t it?”
Blue Shirt: “No, it wasn’t me. Maybe it was just the wind.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Blue Shirt: “More dolls?”
White Shirt: “It’s creepy.”

Black Shirt: “Did you guys see that? I just saw somebody peeping behind that tree.”
White Shirt: “There’s no one there, see.”

White Shirt: “No one here….Guys? Where did you go? This is so funny. I’m so scared.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Blue Shirt: “Now where did Haley go?”
Black Shirt: “She’s probably waiting to pop up and scare us.”

Blue Shirt: “Another doll?”
Black Shirt: “Wait. Isn’t that Haley’s iPod?”
Blue Shirt: “Maybe she dropped it.”
Black Shirt: “Or maybe she got turned into a doll by Milly Hasenpfeffer. Oh I just know she’s out there. And she’s going to turn us all into dolls to add to her collection.

Blue Shirt: “I forgot my flashlight. I’m going to go get it.”

Black Shirt: “So terrible. McKenzie? Where’d you go? McKenzie? McKenzie?
Oh great. Now I’m all by myself.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Blue Shirt: “Well I found the flashlight….Rylee, where are you?…Rylee is that you?…You’re not turning me into a doll!”
