Chapter 4.6 – Pumpkins and further Tremayne abuse
Decision making was usually a difficult trial for Coco. She could barely settle on what to have for breakfast most mornings. However, when it came down to listening to her oldest son, Murphy, and her brother-in-law, Dale Peacock, doing a duet of ‘Don’t go breaking my heart’ on the karaoke machine, she was quick to make her mind up.
‘You guys suck, get off the stage!’ Coco yelled, perhaps judging them a little too harshly.Anyways, the reason why Murphy was dressed up like a mixture between Jack Skellington, Beetlejuice and and Captain Jack Sparrow was because it was Halloween, believe it or not.Self-confidence completely knocked by his own mother, Murphy set out in the pouring rain on his bike to do a bit of trick-or-treating. All was ok though since Murphy had an awesome multi-coloured striped umbrella to help delay the inevitable arrival of pneumonia.Once he returned home, and Tremayne and Ricky had stolen all of his candy, he decided to divulge in a bit of pumpkin carving action, alongside all the other family, besides the triplets (who were obviously too young), and Hayley and Dale because they were probably having sexy time somewhere in the house. Most likely the shower.Tremayne also decided to join in, just because he could.Murphy ended up carving out a cute cat face.Coco ended up carving the expression had made when she had found out about the horse meat scandal.Judd went down the boring generic path since he was already a hot fireman, so it would have been unfair if he had been ultra-talented at pumpkin carving too.As for Tremayne, he created something that looked like, if it had actual brains and self-awareness, it would beg to be put out of its own misery.There, there Tremayne. Maybe one day you won’t be such a failure.
