A Charming EncounterA Charming EncounterBen Tennyson mumbled a few choice words to himself as he tugged at the white collar of the shirt that his grandpa had forced him to wear. Still in the process of their summer vacation trip through the United States, the Tennysons’ latest stop brought them to the town of Salem, Massachusetts.The young hero had initially been rather interested in the stop, but that interest quickly turned into disgust and embarrassment when Grandpa Max had them dress up as pilgrims. The excuse for this had something to do with it not being a proper learning experience in Salem if they didn’t dress the part for the ‘local history’.So here he was, walking around a city while dressed in an old timey black pilgrim’s shirt, complete with the most embarrassing and dorky hat. This was only compounded by the fact that his cousin had a witch hat, and don’t even get him started on how their grandpa was dressed. They all stood out in the worst possible way.
