4. Our muses are locked out in the cold and have to preoccupy themselves while they wait to be let in by someone.
"Dammit!" Oogie cursed with a heavy sigh, rifling through all his pockets. He’d left his keys and phone indoors, meaning himself and Adhra were locked out after a trip to the Human World he’d promised her.
“Daddy, did you leave your keys indoors?” she asked him hopelessly.
“Yeah. Yeah, I did.” he sighed heavily, rather embarrassed at that fact.
She giggled, her ears twitching beneath her hat. Rocking on her feet, she cast a glance at the snow that had fallen freshly in the graveyard. Licking her lips, she made sure her father wasn’t looking before balling up a palm full of snow in her mitten.
Oogie couldn’t believe how stupid he’d been, running a hand through his hair under his fedora. Heaving a sigh, he was suddenly hit by a freezing cold object to the back of his neck and yelled.
“Ack! Hey!” he shouted, rubbing the frozen part to his head.
Adhra giggled and dashed off, taking cover behind a tombstone.
“Why you-! Come here!” he cried playfully, trudging after her.
Adhra squealed, finding more snow to toss as Oogie made up a fist of snow to throw in her direction. This beat freezing outside the door.
8.) Your muse has secretly hidden mistletoe all around the house to catch my muse out, but the tables turn.
Oogie had been told to leave the library and his plans for a while and come out into the hallway. He knew Vitani had been with his mother all afternoon and he had assumed it was about Icelyn, but when he saw the tinsel and holly hung up everywhere he suddenly realized.
Walking down the hall, he caught Vitani on a corner and accidently bumped into her, taking her up in his arms as a reflex.
“Ah! Sorry, Tani!” he exclaimed sheepishly.
Sighing, she shook her head. “It’s fine! I was actually looking for you.” she replied with a sweet smile.
“And I you. I see you’ve been-” he paused, looking up directly above them to see a sprig of mistletoe. “What’s this? Well, would ya look at that. Mistletoe.”
Vitani blinked, her mouth opening and closing with no words. She hadn’t expected it to go this way.
“Y’know, they say you have t’ kiss someone under the mistletoe” he told her playfully with a smirk.
“Well, I actually-” she began, cut short as Oogie dipped her over his knee into a passionate kiss.
Slightly surprised at first, she eventually leaned into it. Although her initial aim had been to surprise him, she still liked how this had turned out. Besides, she still had plenty of chances to catch him back.
Switching to mobile now!
Still lurking as per usual.

Zodiac Signs As A Holiday.
"Can you stop bein’ a twat for five minutes?"
"I’m merely doing my job, Bolton. No more, no less."
"The one an’ only." he replied calculatingly, frowning. "An’ you are-?"
”Ya most likely have. I did create every solitary fear ya have, as well as every nightmare.” he mildly gloated, waving a paw dismissively. Looking back at him, a frown slowly spread across his face although that grin still lined his lips.
"Ya do ask quite a few questions, although I’ve heard people ask more…an’ less interestin’ ones in the past." he admitted with a shrug of his shoulders. "To be honest, I ain’t in this form as much as before. I only use it for scarin’ an’ ‘round town on the occasion. As for meetin’ Vitani…well, that’s a whole new kettle of fish."
"The only fears I have are canines and lightning, anything else, not so much." He eyes the critter on the floor crawling towards him, then going around to disappear in the hole. "Pets of yours?"
As interesting as Oogie was, Brent did have some fear of him in the back of his mind, but it took the form of respect now. Even he had to admit Oogs was a pretty classy guy, in whatever form he’s in.
"Well I do like kettles of fish. Mind sharing or is that too personal?"
Sighting the insect himself, Oogie waited for it to crawl on him before seizing it up and shoving it in his mouth with a crunch.
"Not as such." he said with a smirk, letting out a chuckle. He could tell Brent was afraid of him in some respects, but who wouldn’t be? He was a six to seven foot burlap sack filled with bugs.
Oogie didn’t answer that question but plunged right into the story. “I met Vitani when I was alive.” he explained simply, not divulging into too much information yet.
