“Down here,” said a little pumpkin in the patch. “I didn’t mean to scare you, it’s just that Halloween is only two days away and I was starting to think nobody was ever going to come for me.”
“Well, I am just passing through. Who are you waiting for?” asked Oscar.
“It’s not who I am waiting for, but what I am waiting for,” said the little pumpkin in a sad voice.
Oscar was puzzled by the little pumpkin’s remark and asked, “What exactly are you waiting for?”
“A home,” replied the little pumpkin.
