While Lee Min-Joon was in the square, Seojun and Seo Eun-Hye stopped by the Wine Museum of Orsay City.
They were holding a brochure that introduces the major provinces that produces wines.
“There are a lot of vineyards.”
“Right. That’s why French wine is very famous.”
Seojun and Seo Eun-hye slowly toured around the Wine museum. The tourist guide were explaining the order in which wine was made, the origin of the type and name of wine.
As they looked around the wine museum while talking with his mom happily, they quickly arrived at the end of the tour.
“Do you want to taste the wine? There’s also wine for children.”
Seojun and Seo Eun-hye nodded at the employee’s words.
This sweet grape juice one was better than the grape juice he drank back in Korea. Seo Eun-hye also looked satisfied a the taste of the wine.
“Can I buy wine for my dad?”
They bought a wine at the recommendation of an employee and bought a bottle of children’s wine/grape juice, for Seojun to drink.
When they left the wine museum, Lee Min-joon stood in front of the entrance.
Seojun and Seo Eun-Hye were surprised to see the smiling face of Lee Min-Joon.
“Dad! You came here so fast”.
“Everyone is doing well. They must have something planned from the beginning to end, but if I mess it up by interfering for no reason, I would just bother them.”
“That’s right. I heard there is a piano concert over there. Let’s go watch that.”
“Is this wine?”
Lee Min-joon naturally took the paper bag containing wine from Seo Eun-hye.
“Dad, this is really good. There’s also wine for children.”
“Wine for children?”
“It’s just grape juice.”
Lee Min-joon burst into laughter at the words. Seojun and Seo Eun-hye also smiled and thy headed to the small theater where the concert will be held.
There were quite a few people heading to the small theater. Tourists who came because of curiosity and citizens living in Orsay City were present in the small theater.
The seats were on a first-come, first-served basis at a small admission fee. Seojun and the couple sat in the middle.
“Seojun, can you see the stage?”
Even though it was a small theater, there was a short distance between the seats, so the people behind could see the stage very well.
While, sitting still and waiting, the door next to the stage opened and two people came in. One was a pianist and the other a violinist.
As the two bowed, applause came out from the audience. Seojun and the couple also clapped their hands.
The pianist sat in front of the piano, he first warmed up his hand, and the violinist lifted the violin to her neck and stood elegantly.
The two performers played a famous classic between a duet of Piano and violin. The performance was beautiful. They were not famous performers, but they did a good performance.
After the performance, applause burst out. It would usually be a longer concert but there wasn’t much time to the Holloween festival.
The violinist took the microphone.
“Thank you all for visiting Orsay City. Please enjoy the Halloween festival to your heart’s content and I hope it will be a happy festival.”

When they came out from the small theater, the people walking on the street were completely different from hours ago.
Most of the children were wearing black cloaks with a witch’s broom. Others wore bandage, and imitated a mummy.
Adults either wore headbands with devil horns or angel rings.
Before they knew it, monsters were now occupying the Orsay’s streets.
Seojun took his mom and dad’s hands with excitement as the sight reminded him a life frok his past.
“Mom and dad! Let’s go!”
“Seojun’s clothes are in the Hotel. We should hurry up and go.”
Seojun and the couple hurriedly went back to the hotel. Even the front of the hotel door, the lobby, and the hotel staff were all dressed up.
The hotel was beautifully decorated because it was Halloween, it was completely different from earlier this day.
“I feel like we have come in a different world.”
“Wasn’t the small theater door, a door to another world?”
“So this is Halloween!”
The children shouted Trick or Treat here and there. Adults gave candy to each of them from their pockets.
They soon returned to their room and opened their luggage. They took out costume made by Kim Hee-sung that was well folded.
“Do you wear it by yourself?”
“Yes! What are mom and dad going to wear?”
“We are going to wear the headband that Hee-sung made for us.”
Seojun took out a denim jacket and a hat that was the wolf head. As he look at the hat, it was cuter than from the picture. The ears and fangs of the wolf were small and the eyes were round.
Uncle Hee-sung said he Initially made it so hard that he forgot to consider the weight, as a result the wolf’s head became too heavy. In the end he made another one but much simpler, otherwise it would be difficult for Seojun to bear the weight for many hours.
He wore the denim jacket and black pants with a tail while being careful of the wolf’s head. Then, he put on the paw gloves.
Both hands is now looking like the fluffy wolf hands.
He clenched his fist and it was so cute. The fake nails to the the gloves were also small and soft.
Seojun wore the wolf head hat for the last. When he moved his head here and there, it seemed to be the weight of wearing two hats put together.
“It’s light! I can see the front well.”
When I looked in the mirror, my forehead was covered with a wolf’s snout. The wolf’s head in the mirror was like a baby wolf.
Well, I wanted to be more like a werewolf, but because of the weight. There’s nothing I can do, sigh.
“Seojun, are you done wearing it?”
“Really! So cute! There’s a paw gloves too.”
“Kim Hee-sung is amazing.Don’t you have shoes? I think also made wolf feet.”
“I will just wear sneakers.”
“Okay. Ah, also make sure to not forget your bag.”
Lee Min-Joon put on a small bag on Seojun’s shoulder. It was a wolf-shaped bag that could contain candy or snacks and also some emergency funds.
“Shall we go down now?”
Seojun smiled and held the hands of his mother and father wearing a headband with wolf ears. The family of werewolves has now gathered.
After leaving the hotel, Seojun and his parents headed to the square along pumpkins called Jack o’ lantern.
Jack O’ lanterns were placed side by side along the road like streetlights. There were people here and there taking pictures with Jack O’ lanterns.
“Shall we take a picture too?”
Seojun and his parent also took pictures one after another.
The end of the Jack O’ Lantern Road was Orsay’s Square. The festival hasn’t even started yet, but the square was already noisy. The booths were lit up while children and adults enjoyed themselves.
Seo Eun-hye, who was looking at the children carrying sausages, asked Seojun.
“Are you hungry?”
Seojun shook his head.
“Yeah! But it’s okay. We’ll eat later.”
Lee Min-joon looked at the clock.
“I guess it’s about to start”.
The Halloween festival began with colorful fireworks rising above the sky and children shouting trick or treat together.
A voice said trick-or-treat came out from the speaker installed in the square.
The Halloween festival finally began.
Seojun and his parents first stopped by the tent of the organizer and applied for the participation to the contest. The employee handed over a piece of paper and said.
“You can choose your event here. But if you choose too much, it may not be good for the child so it’s better to choose only one or two. Please take a look at the information table and write down what effect you will use on stage and when. There are numbers on the lights, so you choose what to use after watching the stage. It’s okay to turn off all the lights and let the light of the spotlights remain or just turn on all the lights.”
There were lighting of various colors, fog effects, and soap bubble effects.
“Please submit the music prepared by the participant. If you don’t have music, you can choose from here.”
“I have my music”
“Then, you can choose the effect and come back again in an hour before and get your performance number. We are going to draw lots on who will perform first, so please come on time.”
Seojun nodded one after another.
“There were more things required than I thought…”
“I know. I thought it was just choosing the best costume. Seojun, did you know about this?”
“Yes! I saw it on YouTube. I went to uncle’s company practice room and practiced.”
During his free time, he would always ask An Daho to came and pick him up in order to got to the company.
Seojun put the information brochure in his bags and came out from the tent of the organizer together with his parents.
Outside the tent, the square was already full of monsters. People who had attended the Halloween festival over and over again began to imitate monsters skillfully.
The people who did it for the first time soon got used to their roles.
