Are You Afraid of the Dark? “The Tale of the Dark Dragon” (part 2 of 2)

Keith and Mariah get to school, and Keith is immediately approached by a freakishly giddy Shelly, who asks if KC will be at the Charcoal Pit after school. Keith tells Shelly that KC will in fact be there, if that’s what she wants. After Shelly skips away, Mariah remarks that she never knew Keith had a cousin. Keith mutters something about KC being “from far away”, but Mariah seems less than convinced.

That night, Keith is having dinner with his dad. After a bit of awkward small talk, Keith notices some weird stuff growing on his hand.

What’s a boy to do? Pretend to be KC, that’s what! Keith deepens his voice and says things in a dismissive tone, which totally fools Shelly. Shelly asks him if he wants to “come over and watch TV or something tonight.”


Of course, Keith says yes, and soon after fishes the potion out of the trash.
