In a graveyard on a hill at the edge of town, is where wild skelanimals can always be seen. Some are more common like cats and dogs, bats and penguins. But this is the tale of a few rare ones that live in the graveyard on my hill.

In my graveyard are mythical skelanimals. Made from the bones of creatures that aren't supposed to exist. So where did the bones come from? That's what I wanted to find out as i visited the graveyard and watched them. They were, a light blue bat like gargoyle with gray bones, a purple wyvern with gold bones, a red Phoenix with gold bones, and an odd green tree spirit fox, with mossy colored bones. When I watched them I found out that they didn't like to see each other, each one kept to a section of the graveyard and defended it should they see another skelanimal.

The gargoyle kept to a big castle like tombstone which it dug a hole in, under shady trees to keep the sun away. The dragon was in the west, on a castle tower like tombstone that got sun some parts of the day. The Phoenix had a nest of sticks atop a large obelisk that had a half melted angel on it, this was because the Phoenix burst into flames each night and woke up new each morning with the sun. He had a spot in the south that got sun all day. The free spirit fox never strayed too far from her big tree to the east, sleeping during the day while the leaves on her head took in energy.

I wondered why they didn't like each other, so I started looking around the graveyard. A burned tree in the Phoenix's area that was just a black trunk told me that maybe one time the Phoenix slept in the foxes tree and burned it down. More walking around I found in the dragons area a stone that was broken, charred and had tiny claw marks in them some with flecks of gold. So I thought maybe the dragon and gargoyle had a fight for some reason. So I kept watching them to find out how they acted and learn more about them.

The gargoyle in his little castle cave, slept most of the day away, I shined a flashlight inside and saw the little gargoyle, holding a living bat, like one might a teddy bear. The tree spirit fox was up on a branch of her tree, she was kinda shy and skittered back inside the tree to hide when she saw me. A little bark face poked out slightly. The Phoenix was the most odd because he didn't do much at all, he was awake and active, he just didn't move from his nest, cleaning his feathers. The dragon was actively aggressive and territorial. He defended his little tower with all he had, even spitting a purple flame at me and slashing with tiny gold talons. I wondered what he was defending so much, then I saw a glint in the grass. I grabbed it and ran as the tiny dragon flew after me. When I left his area he left and I saw that what I grabbed was a gold coin. Bending it, it was revealed to be chocolate. Why would he have chocolate coins?

I looked at the others and found that each of them had a kind of candy. The gargoyle had blue rock candy crystals growing in his little cave. And the tree spirit fox had buried at the base of her tree a pile of green jelly beans. I didn't know why what are essentially dead animals had candies, but the Phoenix showed me. After an hour of doing nothing the Phoenix flew to the burned tree and pecked into it, picking out a red cinnamon candy and carried it to his nest to eat. Skelanimals ate candy, and they had favorites.

I came back to the graveyard at night, very risky, also don't try it at home someone will call the cops. I had to learn more about the two nocturnal skelanimals, the gargoyle and the tree spirit fox. At dust, I could see the gargoyle's little bat friend flying about. So I shined a light into the gargoyle's tunneled out tombstone. Suddenly the little gargoyle burst out and flew into the air, I was startled and fell back. The gargoyle landed on top of the tombstone and looked at me with his blue eye sockets. I sat up, and stood slowly, holding out some rock candy I got from the store. The gargoyle backed up, then looked at my hand and came over, with his tiny gray claws he picked out crystals one at a time. When it had its hands full he ate some, crunching his with sharp teeth. As I backed away, he scaled down the stone with one arm holding rock candy and stored the rest of it. He then flew off and chased his bat friend.

The tree spirit fox was more comfortable leaving her tree at night I noticed. While during the day I noticed she acted more like a plant, mostly motionless absorbing the sun in the leaves on her head, at night she acted much more like a fox. She was playing in the grass, chasing fireflies and catching them with her front paws. She would poke them a bit but let them go. She also dug up some jelly beans after playing. I had some jelly beans, but anytime I got near she would see me and run. Still very skittish. Before I left, I shined a light on the sleeping dragon, his gold bones shined but he didn't wake up. The Phoenix was a tiny fire melting away at the angel.

The next day I had an idea to get all the skelanimals together. So I told some friends my plan, each one would buy some candy and make a trail to one spot. So we each got ready, Cassie got a bag of chocolate coins, Alyssa got a bag of green jelly beans, Conner got a bag of cinnamon candy, and I got a bunch of blue rock candy. We plotted out our trails, I laid out crystals to the sleeping gargoyle's castle cave. Cassie scattered gold coins in a trail but had to hide behind a tree as the dragon was very much awake and angry. Alyssa looked up at the tree at the little mossy skull that was staring at her from inside the tree, just peeking out of the bark. She smiled at the fox and dropped some jelly beans leading away from the tree. Conner dropped cinnamon candies leading back to the origin point and the Phoenix watched him. Once the others were done, Cassie laid out the rest of the coins and I woke up the gargoyle. We waited behind a tombstone to see if they would come. Sure enough the gargoyle came, eating the crystals as he walked. The Phoenix hopped in too, holding the red cinnamon ball between his feet and pecking at them. The dragon burned the foil off the chocolate coins before eating them as he walked instead of flew. The tree spirit fox was the last, shyly stepping in and eating the jelly beans. They didn't notice each other until they got too close, suddenly they all looked up and saw the others. They were all startled and then glared at each other. The skelanimals started to wait to see would would make the first move. We hid behind stones and waited as well.

Then they started to communicate with sounds and motions. The Phoenix seemed sorry for burning the tree, the gargoyle seemed friendly but the dragon was still aggressive. They all started to play with each other. The tree spirit fox grew a dandelion with the seeds ready to fly and the gargoyle blew them away with his wings. The dragon kept trying to burn the very hyper Phoenix that would not catch on fire. They kept playing all day, and at night they sat around the fire that used to be the Phoenix. The gargoyle went to his castle tombstone and came back, carrying his bat friend under an arm. He then showed the dragon and fox. The bat woke up and yawned showing sharp teeth. This scared the fox who moved away, but the gargoyle called her buy showing them the bat could fly. He threw him up and the bat took off to get bugs. They watched the bat go, and we stayed through the night. In the morning they all woke from around the fire to see the new Phoenix hatch. But now it was different, the skelanimals seemed tired of the dreary graveyard. They all went back to their spots and sat bored. So we decided to see if they wanted to leave with us. Cassie went to dragon with a candy gold coin. He looked at it and crawled on her arm like a bat. Conner went to the Phoenix and the bird landed on his shoulder. Alyssa sat near the tree by the grave and watch the little tree spirit fox come out and sit on her lap. I went to the castle tombstone and tapped my fingers on the edge. Little claws grabbed my fingers and the gargoyle came out. I gave him a piece of rock candy and he grabbed it. He climbed up on my head and we went to meet the others. My friends and our new friends left the graveyard to have adventures with our new skelanimals.
