In this Halloween issue, the tables are turned in Salem and it's NO TRICK! This time the Treats are snacking on YOU! Hideous Creatures are stalking and abducting children as they Trick or Treat under the control of the delicious "Cookie". It's up to Tarot and Raven Hex to Save the Kids before they are eaten alive by these Wicked Sweets!

Its Halloween in Salem and trick-or-treaters have taken to the streets. At Witches Raven Hex has been scrying in the mirror and has come across three Salem youths that have wondered up to a house they should have avoided. The haunt is the “Old Myer’s Place” the home to a crazy baker witch who Tarot feels they should check out, Raven is disappointed since this most likely means and early end to their Samhain celebration. Tarot tells her sister with the already shakey impression mortals have of witches the last thing they need is some reclusive baker witch abducting children. The two Black Rose Witches teleport to the house in a pink mist and approach the door as they are all to rarely seen, as a team.

Tarot immediately realizes the house is in the grip of a binding spell, and they will be unable to use magic to protect themselves or rescue the children. As soon as they enter they are attacked by zombie gingerbread men who sink their candy corn teeth into the witches soft warm flesh. Tarot counterattacks with the Black Rose Sword and Raven takes out a few cookie-man with some powerful kicks but the witches find themselves running through the house in search of cover.

Not long after barricading the door do the hands of the sugary walkers burst through and grab Raven and Tarot dragging them to another part of the house where they are thrown into a vat of chocolate where they are greeted by Cookee a beautiful young gingerbread girl frosted in pink and wearing only stockings and a lace bustier.

Cookee and her creator

Cookee explains how her creator, Myers made her from scratch, a living cookie from his cookbook of spells, to be his lover. He was there as she awoke from her “birth oven,” watching with her peppermint eyes as he clothed her with strawberry and vanilla icing only to clean it off her and redress her again and again until he was satisfied.

The baker witch promised to teach his beautiful cookee creation about love and she was enchanted with him, but in a short time the baker became neglectful, gluttons and Cookee became jealous of the other cookies her ate. Watching Myers, sitting in front of the television watching zombie movies, consuming bag after bag of cookies and saying how much he loved them, Cookee developed a warped sense of how to display affection. Believing it was her purpose to show her creator love she did so in the only way she had seen… by consuming the object of her devotion. Sinking her teeth into Myers flesh, proud to show him how much she had learned about love, she devoured his entire body. He was her first love but now she intends to “love” the three tick-or-treaters and the two witches who are still stuck in the chocolate.

Meanwhile at the Salem Woods Cemetery Jon is getting ready to take the twins trick-or-treating, the two are dressed in a yellow and black striped shirt with wings and expect to be a big hit as a cute bumble bee. However the first house that call on is disgusted and scolds Jon for dressing his girls in such horrid ghost costumes. House after house fails to reward the girls as everyone fails to see the two young children for what they are, kids enjoying the night and looking for candy. However undisturbed by the response from Salem, the twins still manage to enjoy the chance to trick-or-treat and thank “Uncle Jon” for taking them out

Meanwhile back at the old Myers place Cookee decorates her two paralyzed witches with frosting preparing to bake them and “love” them, the way she was taught by her creator. As the two witches inch closer and closer to the bakers over one of the trick-or-treaters, 13 year old Steven Gurkwin, who is dresses as Garry Hotter, a young wizard in a scarf and round glasses (obviously a Harry Potter spoof) slips his bonds and bravely tries to free the witches.

Cookee explains the binding spell over the house has made the young wizards magic useless but her still persists with his wand, getting closer and closer until he pokes out one of Cookee’s peppermint eyes. As she runs away Steven retrieves the Black Rose Sword and prepares to cut the witches free.

Returning with her army of gingerbread zombies, the one eyes cookee commands the undead deserts to devour the witches but leave the young wizard for her. Steven places himself between the attacking zombies and his witches in order to protect them but it’s Tarot and Raven who must slash and kick thru the gingerbread attackers.

While the witches are busy fighting Cookee picks up the boy;

“You hurt me, wizard my face is not pretty anymore. But I forgive you. And do you know why…? Because I love you!”

She brings the boy towards her mouth but just then the Black Rose Sword slashes through her torso cutting her in two. Cookee falls to the floor dead.

The witches free the trick-or-treater but young Steven is in no hurry to leave his new girlfriends, trying to convince Raven to let him take her out sometime. She gives him a light zap to send him scurrying away and the sisters return to Witches Hollow where the healing pool takes care of the scars they received from the teeth of the hungry gingerbread men.

This short tale ends with the two Black Rose sisters celebrating Samhain together skyclad and at home.
