all that bad luck...

You have to bury all of the

shards of the mirror glass

along with all of the dust

remnants deep into the ground

- at the base of a tree.

- Like my tree?

Oh, that's your tree now?

Yeah, the willow will do.

Can we, Aunt Ellie?

I think it'd be best if

we let Uncle Gavin do it.

Now you're breaking

the rules.

[Gavin] All right, now who...?

Tina, she likes the moon.

All right...

[melody plays]

And the rest?

Kathy can stay with me tonight.

And what about...?

Grendon. He can go

under my bed.

Why Grendon?

He followed mommy home

to protect me.

Protect you from who?

The bogeyman?


Have you ever met

the bogeyman before?

Then how do you know

he's so bad?

Maybe he's just made of boogers

and just wants a hanky?

And if you don't...

he'll tickle you!


Anything in this big new place

bothering you, peanut?


You never had me place him

under your bed before?

Why tonight?

I don't know...

I had an inkling.

I miss my tree.

I promise you

we'll play there tomorrow.

We can even bury

that bad luck.

I thought you said

that's cheating?

Yeah, you're right, I did.

Except when it's okay.

But now it's bedtime. C'mon.

Grendon, remember?

Of course, peanut.

Good nigh.

She's all tucked in.

She had me put Grendon

under her bed.

Did she ever do that

with you?

No. But you know how she gives

them all a mind of their own.

I don't think I've ever seen

this one before.

I look at it every morning.

How do I not know about this?

Because to you it's

just a photograph.

I always adored

my mother's rosary.

There was a charm on it of

the Mother Mary that I loved.

But... all things that are

loved are eventually broken.

Me, my mom, and River

used to walk the park

every Sunday before church.
