Ms. Crabenscab isn't winning any beauty pageants and Billy's about to find out why.
To say that Ms. Crabenscab’s face was a little disfigured was to say that the Elephant Man was a real looker. The face that greeted Billy made him feel mushy inside. He tried to scream but his lungs were out of breath, and his legs now felt firmly encased in concrete. Crabenscab’s face looked like someone had rearranged it with a sledgehammer. Her nose was growing out of the middle of her forehead and her mouth was not in the front of her face, but on the side of it. One eyeball was where her chin should be and the other was next to her chin, which was to the left of her nose at the hairline. To top it off, her skin oozed puss and was dry and cracked and peeling off, revealing soft, glistening skin beneath. She reached out for Billy with one of her claw-like hands, as Billy tripped over a weed and was sent sprawling on his back. He scrambled away from the monstrosity that was coming for him. His hands were cut in several different places by goatheads in the weeds. Ms. Crabenscab stopped on the stoop of her porch and eyed the terror-stricken boys at the foot of her walk. Rodney immediately puked in his astronaut helmet and Denny crapped his purple monkey costume. Billy regained his footing and put some distance between himself and Crabenscab. He ran right past his slack-jawed friends and down the street, screaming the whole way.
