Lesson learned

It was a laboratory experiment by EDUCATION (Eccentric Douchebag Union of Celestial Atoms with Terrible Inferior Organism and Neurons) that went horribly wrong. The objective was to create a properly-functioning flawless humanoid that would help students with their career objectives and test them out to see if they can really earn it. But it all backfired when one heavy overdose of a wrong chemical mixture turned the experiment rogue. It fled the lab and now, every Halloween, returns to hunt down its victims.

There’s no escaping it. Every student, once born, is branded with a specific time stamp which foreshadows the day when they will have to dance with the devil in the pale moonlight. The only way to avoid that confrontation is to fly off to a faraway land (they might have their own monsters but those aren’t as scary as ours). The ones, who fight valiantly, earn the monster’s respect and get a chance to pursue their careers.

However, the monster never leaves empty handed. Every Halloween, the monster comes with a raging hunger and leaves after a feast. Its favourite victims are the ones who call themselves “I am GPA 5!”
