THE COSTUME PARTY
By Maren Smith
So, the devil really did look good in a three-piece suit.
Colby stood at the punchbowl, stealing sips from a plastic cup while also stealing glimpses of the Lord of Darkness from across the crowded living room. Say what you want about Marcy Hallebacker—backstabbing gossip-monger that she was—she certainly knew how to throw one whale of a Halloween party. The decorations were garish and the costumes were lavish; everything had been thought of. Enough munchies to feed a small army abounded in the kitchen, games and laughter filled both living rooms, a dearly-departed séance was spooking out the pantry, and Michael Jackson’s Thriller was blaring (yet again) from every stereo speaker so people could zombify in carefully choreographed jerks and lurches wherever they were. The punch was spiked, the baby gate across the upper-floor stairs had been surreptitiously breached at least three times, and Rob Schroeder, captain of the neighborhood watch, was passed out on the back lawn and had been for about three hours.
Even now, at a quarter after midnight, the party showed no signs of stopping. Despite the fact that many couples had already gathered their coats, thanked their hostess and wandered off into the night to relieve their babysitters, sixty people still crowded the lower floor of Marcy’s house. A night owl from birth, Colby had no intention of going home. Oh no. It was midnight, but it was also Friday and this was her first party since becoming single again more than five months back. As far as Colby was concerned, tonight was less about ghosts, goblins or trick-or-treaters, and more about saving a horse by riding a cowboy.
Too bad there were no cowboys here. Oh, there had been one earlier, but he’d stayed only long enough to grab a plastic pumpkin head before dashing off to join the rest of the six-year-olds in the neighborhood treat-or-treat brigade. So yeah, no cowboy.
Still, Colby was determined. She had a whole houseful of men to choose from, which, once she’d weeded out the married, the taken, the geriatric, and those not yet old enough to legally drink the punch, had amounted to twelve remaining options. Between Popeye (complete with plastic blowup forearms), the zombies (currently shaking their undead stuff on the dance floor), and, of course, her choice of royalty—two Elvis impersonators and one king (the Burger King king, to be exact) romantic pickings proved slim.
Until the devil showed up.
He was a stunning specimen of manliness. Though he lacked cloven hooves and tail, pitchfork, or any hint of gaudy red paint, Colby knew exactly who he was pretending to be. He had horns and sharp black fingernails filed to wicked points. And his eyes…it was truly amazing, what people could do with contacts these days. They were completely black—no pupils, no irises, no surrounding white. Just black. It was an awesome look. And the suit—dark gray boardroom attire—just put the icing on the eye-candy cake. It came with a complimenting crimson and gold tie, a red handkerchief tucked into his breast pocket and shoes spit-polished until they shone like glass. His features were both ruggedly handsome and yet perfectly refined. His horns protruded just off his forehead, poking through neatly-combed, short, black hair, and—
And he was coming her way…
