Bear had worked really hard on his Halloween costume, and was somewhat miffed that he had to constantly explain what he was to people. He was a jellyfish, goddammit. More than one of his friends had said that jellyfish were not scary creatures, but Bear begged to differ. The box jellyfish is the most poisonous creature on the planet. Isn’t that a frightening fact? Alistair said the costume was so pink and frilly it looked more appropriate for a gay pride parade than trick-or-treating. Whatever. They were all just jealous that he had a kick-ass costume and they hadn’t bothered to dress up at all, the unfestive party-poopers.
