She ne’er believes me. But you will. won’t you? Please state me you’ll listen. Well. everyone in town is scared of it – the crow. I mean. It’s reasonably large for a crow. Its wings are the size of my weaponries ( chortles ) . But whenever I see it. I get a tremble down my spinal column. It’s an atrocious feeling. Like that feeling when you did something horrible. yeah. that one. Well. anyways. I was out playing with my friend. Jimmy – his name is Jim but everyone calls him Jimmy. Jim’s excessively formal for him. So. I saw it and that crawling feeling came back like it ever does. I wasn’t the lone 1 who saw it either. The whole town stopped to look at it. The ground being is that it belonged to Old Man Winter. You don’t cognize who Old Man Winter is? ( Laughs ) I got Tas say I’m truly surprised to hear that! I guess I can state you who he was so. can’t I? Old Man Winter lived on a hill by the border of town with his married woman. They didn’t have childs ; at least I don’t think so. One twenty-four hours his married woman cryptically died. Everyone knew it was him. even though he didn’t admit it. So. the constabulary charged him with slaying and he was put to decease. I can’t retrieve whether he was hung or forced to imbibe toxicant but it doesn’t affair.
The point is that he died. Huh? I’m sorry. How is the crow involved? Why. you don’t cognize anything make ya? I guess I’ll tell ya that excessively. The crow – cipher knows its name – was Old Man Winter’s merely pet – his lone friend. That crow was with him everyday until he died. Now. without a place the crow merely flies around town. No 1 will take it because they know it belonged to Old Man Winter. It’s a shame truly. A existent shame. But that’s non the lone ground no 1 likes the crow. The other is that whoever sees the crow first…dies. It’s true! It happened to the Marley’s and the O’Reilley’s and the Dunkats! All their male childs died…or it was person they knew. All I know is that they found a black plume on the organic structure. Today. I was the first individual to see it.
So. merely to allow you cognize. I may be killed in a few proceedingss or seconds. I don’t mind if I go every bit long as anyone that I know doesn’t dice. That would be atrocious! Let me state you something. my greatest fright is losing person I love. Whether it’s my mamma or my friend Jimmy. I already lost my dad to malignant neoplastic disease and my small sister to a runaway Equus caballus. I don’t want any longer decease in my life. Not now. particularly non now. You know I merely heard my mamma got offered a topographic point at the university here in town. Which I think is fantastic! She can larn a trade like blacksmithing or something…I don’t think being a blacksmith would work out good for her ( laughs. suspirations. hears boom ) . I like the rain. don’t you? I used to play in it every clip with Jimmy. Speaking of Jimmy. I wonder where he is. He promised to be right over.
