Mona was sitting on the ground with her head resting in her hands, looking and feeling forlorn.
“What's wrong, Mona? You don't look happy,” Stella asked.
“I'm missing my family. It will be years before I get to see them again.”
Stella replied softly, “Yes, it probably will be years but you can still have an enjoyable time as you wait for them.”
“That's just it. It isn't an enjoyable time hanging around this dead-beat place all the time.”
“Well,” Stella responded, “Look at it this way. Everyone is dying to come here.”
“Ha-Ha-Ha. That isn't even funny anymore.”
“Let's go to the local spooks tonight for a change. Or we could go spook a few people?”
“Geeze Stella, you're full of it tonight.”
“Have you seen the new neighbor? OOPS, I mean, the new spook?”
“Goodnight Stella, I'm going back to my bed!”
“Night night, don't let the spookies bite!”
“DROP DEAD STELLA!”
