In this particular story, the new Royal Guard have arrived in their training camp, and they discover that if they go out together into the night, working in pairs, with the first letter calling out it's name, and the second letter holding onto them, they can ward off the ghosts and goblins. Above is J's drawing of A holding E while he calls out his name, while the rest of the Guard waits in their cabin.
