The next morning, Count Bleck woke up very late, and didn’t bother to shower or otherwise make himself look clean and organized. He simply didn’t have the spirit to play that character today. He walked into the living room on his way to the kitchen and was surprised to find more chaos going on than what was usual. O’Chunks was carrying a huge pine tree haphazardly through the living room. Nastasia and Mimi were arguring about just where it should be placed to look good, and poor O’Chunks was swaying back and forth, the tree branches nearly missing those who were standing around watching.
“O’Chunks! barked Count Bleck,” the Count said in an effort to get him to stay still. Everyone froze and looked to Count Bleck. “Just put that down in the corner by the fireplace, would you? It doesn’t really matter where you put a Christmas tree.” O’Chunks complied, waiting until Mr. L had set up the tree stand to drop it in with a th

The four of them stood in the snow, looking out over the sparkling expanse of the frozen lake. Mr. L was bundled up in a thick black coat with a fluffy green scarf and earmuffs, O’Chunks was wearing a fuzzy sweater that gave him the appearance of a large, angry bear, Nastasia had donned a simple white coat alongside a bubblegum pink hat and a pair of pink gloves to match her hair, and Mimi had dressed herself in an outfit that made her look not unlike a gingerbread house.
“Got the skates, L?” Mimi asked, her eyes twinkling with delight at the winter scenery. Snow was still falling, covering the trees, the ground, and them.
“Yep,” Mr. L replied, holding up a black sports bag. He set it on the ground and unzipped it, pulling out a pair of ice skates for everyone. Everyone sat down and quickly replaced their shoes with the sleek, brand new skates. Nastasia had gone out and bought them, making sure to get the correct sizes.
When they tried to stand up, they

Mimi, Mr. L, O’Chunks, and Nastasia were crowded around the circular dinner table located in the kitchen, having a lively dinner chat. Mr. L and Nastasia were debating the merits of different brands of vacuum cleaners, while Mimi was blabbering on about a boy she had a crush on, with O’Chunks not really listening at all as he daydreamed about a certain someone. Count Bleck had sequestered himself away in his study to supposedly do work, while Dimentio was out on a reconnaissance mission of some sort.
As the topics changed, as dinner conversation tended to do, they breached the subject of taking a break of some sort. “I’m tired of getting beaten up by that ugly old plumber!” Mimi complained. Mr. L snorted derisively.
O’Chunks said, “S’not like yeh did aneh better.” L rolled his eyes in response as Mimi went on. “I think we should get a break! I haven’t had any time to go shopping!”
Mr. L nodded. “I’d l
What's Happening to Castle Bleck? Part 3 It was now dinner time at Castle Bleck. O’Chunks and Dimentio were already seated at the table, patiently waiting while Nastasia cooked. All of the misplaced items had been returned to their proper places earlier, although someone still occasionally found a piece of silverware hidden away. Everyone turned their heads to look at the doorway as the sound of screaming came down the hallway. Much to their shock, Mario burst into the room. They scrambled into battle stances while Mario babbled about something and flailed his arms around in a panic. Dimentio took note of the unusual behavior and relaxed. “Calm down, would you?” he said, annoyed. Mario stopped, blue eyes wide, and shouted, “I’m stuck!” The voice was not that of an Italian plumber, but of a certain scared shapeshifter.What's Happening to Castle Bleck?

“Mimi?” O’Chunks asked tentatively. “What happen’ teh yeh?” “I
