Yeah. Well, that's a good thing.

Very good.

I hope it's okay that I came.

You awake?


What? What's wrong? What is it?

I gotta go to the bathroom.

- I told you to go before we went to bed, young man.

- Yeah, but l didn't have to go then.

All right. Hang on a second.

All right. There you go

What do you mean?

-That's all you need. You're on your own, big guy.


Just go pee off the porch. Take it.

That's not what l gotta do.

All right, just go down the stairs,

go through the kitchen,

out the back, and follow the path.

It's not very far.

You're not gonna walk me out there?

All right.

Oh, Honey, just make sure that you use one

of the sticks by the door to get rid of the spiders in the seat.

You gotta be kidding me.


Hey. How'd it go? Okay?

We played all day long. Hide and seek,

ghost in the graveyard, whatever. They never found me.

So, l get to see the secret place?

Et voila.

-You crawled down there?

-Yeah. All the time.

Sometimes not even when we were playing.

It was just a great place to be alone.

-Weren't you scared?


It was really cool down there in the summer,

and when l was down there, l could hear Grandma

moving around the kitchen,

making her food and talking to people.

It felt safe.


What about your visit to the outhouse?

Were you scared?

Come on, you've seen that place.

Uh, huh! That's why I don't

go there in the dark.

Wouldn't have been so bad,

except for all the banging.

- Banging?

- Yeah, when I was inside.

Just the branches banging

against the walls in the wind.

Come on, let's take that walk.


Another one of my secret places.

Yeah. Yeah, it's really beautiful.

I've always loved it here.

You're really beautiful.

The last three years with you
