The Pumpkin Chase

Zach and Alana Hutchins were brought together by a pumpkin.

It started days before Halloween of his freshman year in college, when Zach and some friends broke the rules and serenaded a girl after visiting hours. It was an adrenaline-pumping experience, and for some reason, when Zach was running off with his friends, he stole a pumpkin from the girls' dorm hallway. 

The pumpkin belonged to Alana, who wasn't pleased when Zach returned it later, already carved. The two tell Dick their unlikely Halloween love story.
