The child will, from this experience,

attempt to...

...construct an explanation

of what's happened.

And these explanations may excuse

the parental negligence or abuse.

The child may blame themselves

for what has happened.

Look, if you come over

earlier then we can study some more.


Hey. Do you wanna

go get some coffee?

No. No. I've...

...gotta get to the library.

Paper's due next week.

Are you okay?

You seem kind of weirded-out.

I haven't been sleeping too well.

Call me tonight.

I'll read you my paper...

...on developmental perspectives

in abuse cases. It's better than Ambien.

Okay. Bye.


The library will be closing in five minutes.

- Hey, Lee.

- Hey.

Hey, what's up?

Oh, I'm just finishing up this paper.

What are you doing?

I just got sprung from the stacks.

My brain was mushing out.

Oh, God, I know what you mean.


Leann? Hello?

Listen, Beth, I didn't mean to ditch you

after class today. I...

Leann, are you still there?

I don't know how to explain it.

L... I've been...

- I've been having some problems.

- What kind of problems?

Ever since I...

Well, I don't know.

I mean, Shelley drowned,

and that was my voice screaming.

And then that bizarre phone call,

and it was dated today.

- I don't...

- Where are you?

I'm at the overpass on College.

That's two minutes away.

I'll be right there.

I keep seeing things. I mean,

weird people looking at me.

- Leann?

- I'm sorry.

I didn't mean to panic. I've just...

I've been seeing

some really strange stuff.

I don't know,

it's the weirdest, weirdest thing.

Every time I turn around, they're...


- No! No!

- Leann!

Didn't see anything?

Like I said, she threw herself off.

Please, can we go?

This is taking so long.

You're gonna have to stay here
