Ghoulia shows Toralei it’s better to be scary smart than freaky fast.
Ghoulia attempts to invite Toralei, Meowlody, and Purrsephone to her party, but is met with mockery because she can't voice the purpose of her interruption fast enough on account of being a zombie. Ghoulia's friends come to her aid, but this does not stop the werecats from mocking Ghoulia. Ghoulia retorts that she's just as fast as Toralei, so Toralei proposes a race: Whoever gets to Hackington's classroom at the other side of the school first wins. The loser will help with the catering at the winner's party. Ghoulia accepts the challenge, after which the werecats swiftly run off.
Ghoulia's friends contemplate how they can help Ghoulia win the race and if they have a right to interfere, but before they can reach a conclusion, Ghoulia has already left. She makes her way to the catacombs, while aboveground the werecats have run out of breath and decide to walk the rest of the way, as even then a zombie can't possibly be faster than they are. They even take the time to discuss a headline for the race as it can be written about in the Ghostly Gossip with Spectra. Meanwhile, Ghoulia reaches the zombies' highway in the catacombs, where the zombies tickle large dragons' noses so the resulting sneeze will launch them in a pre-decided direction to elsewhere in the school. As such, Ghoulia easily reaches the classroom before the werecats do, much to their horror.
Ghoulia and her friends have the time of their unlife at Ghoulia's party. The werecats provide catering as promised, if reluctantly and with a bite to it. Toralei offers two zombies another slice of pie, but trips and gets the pie on her head. The others laugh, but Toralei takes it in stride because the pie is delicious.
