There is a place in New York called, "Tarry Town." Tarry Town was believed to be haunted by supernatural creatures. Such as the infamous "Headless Horseman" who lives in Sleepy Hollow, the most haunted place in Tarry Town. Ichabod Crane, a young man that was skinny, his legs and arms were so long, he had big ears, small head, and flashy green eyes. He works as a schoolmaster which was respected by the people who were living after the Revolutionary War. Since Ichabod was a schoolmaster and back in the 1700's, people were not paid very other than farmers. He had to quarter at people's houses and he can actually eat a lot ! His traits were strict because he was a schoolmaster, talkative because he talks about ghost stories, and gluttonous because he ate a lot.
After school, Ichabod likes to tell ghost stories about supernatural creatures. But one day, he went to the church choir and saw an eighteen year old Katrina Van Tassel. He wanted to marry her and her wealth. But there was a challenger, Brom "Bones" Van Brunt. Brom was popular, athletic, and knew much more about the Headless Horseman. One day, both of the rivals were invited to the Van Tassels, where Katrina lived. They both went to the party invitation, eating, dance, and basically having fun. After that, people went in a cricle and told ghost stories, Especially Brom Bones. He told his run-in with the Headless Horseman. His traits is greed because now he wants to marry Katrina and her wealth and jealous because of the rivalry with Brom Bones.
Ichabod left the party for some reason.
After leaving the party, Ichabod was trying to go to a house that will accept his quartering until the Headless Horseman chased Ichabod. Ichabod tries to outrun the Headless Horseman but was hit with a pumpkin.
