The real story, not the fairy tale.

Damn! It's like Jill knows her sister's buried here.

"Perfect spot, yes?"

"I suppose. But, why here?" She's on to me… must've made a mistake… left a clue.

"No reason, it's like she's still here…."

"But, Laura's not here." It's a setup--she knows, she knows!

"Well, we all used to come here—her spirit, I feel it."

"It's creepy with her being murdered. What does her spirit tell you?"

"Nothing really. It just feels restless."

I see it in your eyes. Well, you won't be missing her much longer.

"Why are you looking at me like that? Jack? Jack!"
