Percy has been sent to work with Alfie on Halloween night. During a break, Kelly decides to tell everyone a scary story about a one-eyed truck. Percy and Alfie hope that the story is not too scary. Max and Monty then complain that "it's just a story." Jack finds this insulting, so he hushes them. With that, Kelly begins to tell the story. Later, after teasing everyone about the story, Max and Monty are sent to dump some dirt. After seeing some things on their way, they see a light and, thinking it is the one-eyed truck, run away in fright, but soon feel silly when they realise it was Thomas.
