The Seven Creepies in: The Christmas Crossover Caper | Part 17

“The Shopping Centre of the Universe Mall and Gastropub,” Doctor Cratch read the sign with profound, abiding disgust. “You were right, Hatboy. I don’t like it.” “I hate it,” Carla agreed. Doctor Cratch pointed at her. “Me too,” I said. … Continue reading
