Just initials.

Those are my initials.

Your initials are H.E.H.?

Come on,

guys, let's go.

Come on,

you kids shouldn't be

playing around here anyway.

You're not alone.

You never told me there'd

be a bunch of dead people

buried in our backyard.



We found a graveyard

by the woods.

I'm writing.

Did you guys know?

Well did you?

A lot of old churches had

graveyards on the property.


dead people?

Imagine what quack

neighbors there'll be.


happens when people die?

Does a part of you live forever

or is it just like going to

sleep and never waking up?

Since dad, I think

a lot about death,

but it's strange when it's

the death of a little girl.

Where do you

think her body is?

Whose body?

The dead girl.

The one in the graveyard.

She has the same

initials as me, H.E.H.

Don't you think that's strange?

No, it's probably

just a coincidence.

I don't think you

should worry about it.

My heart was

pounding just at the thought.

What if they'd been my initials?

Hey, Molly.

Wanna go to the store with me?

Paper and pens are a

writer's best friend.



Good day.

Would you have

any carbon paper?

Sure thing, sir.

How many boxes would you like?

Three boxes, 100 sheets.


Thank you.

So far, living

here is worse than I imagined.

Mom and Dave aren't exactly

your typical parents.

As long as we turn up

for meals and bedtime,

they don't worry

too much about us.

Into the trees


You awake?

Do you not see me

sitting at my desk?

We need to talk.

It's possible, isn't it?

Maybe a crossed signal?

It could've been a

voice from the radio.


I'm not making this up.

Do you want a sip?

I'm not drinking that.

Is that Dave's?

What's wrong with you?
