Our records was deep into spinning her second set when she knew Megan, lumbering away from the dance area toward a grove of prickly, pear I've got you Taking a phone call. these diagnosed someone's phone rang around that time. I remove, because I was trying to figure out what song it was the to I mean it was highly rhythmic and reminded me of incense Supposing, like
I used to have a band It sounded a lot like one of our songs, it's hard to think about how one song goes one. Another song is playing, though actually three songs were playing at the same time Mika asked me to play popular music only way I'll do. That is if I can spend multiple songs at the same time. So it sounds a little like a nightmare. I call it freak pop too Flynn also recalled seeing Megan leave the dance floor it was around midnight reading near the bonfire when MEG in walked. Past me, I remember thinking that she was walking. Kind of fast, I asked her where she was going, but she didn't answer me anything thing- was wrong. I figured she Didn't hear me so I went back to my book. I brought a whole collect, no buts with great party scenes in them in case. Anyone else wanted to reach three Gatsby flanagins wake.

I have an update on the disappearance of naked, while lobby maidens what has been found at the bottom of the drainage, ditch along drainage, ditch road. The watch stop working at twelve o five Around the time taken was last seen, As we all know, there are many reasons why a watch might be separated from its owner. There are many reasons why a watch would stop working. For example, the key Especially this and the battery died or grab, he got weird and time stopped. Ores, I'm kind of butterfly effect situation where a butterfly flapped its wings against maidens risk causing it swatted breaking the watch. Not necessarily an indicator that something utterly horrible has happened to Megan, not at all the watch. Astound nearly five miles from the location of the party, where drainage, ditch road ends and becomes in hospitable. Wasteland beckons, parents have released a statement which I will now read. First, we would like to thank the efforts,

This last week has in like a nightmare, but we have been given strength by the support of our community, We also want to thank our neighbours who have been dropping off big goods and casts roles.

The hand was positively identified by Make its parents as belonging to her body donor. As we all know, there are many reasons why hand might become detached from its body and fall from the sky. It's not necessarily an indicator that something unspeakably awful has happened to make it, but it's safe to say that probably something pretty bad has happened. there's been speculation. That maidens body donor once thought to be a benevolent gift from night filled.

When I left the dance floor, so I could find a place to pee in the desert. I dont know: if you ever been in a body with that anatomy, but the ability to pee outside easily is a major Burke. I went past Cactus Grove. and decided to stand over the side of the drainage. Ditch its act, Lena Arroyo, which is a type of steep gully created by intermittent flooding. I learned that in my advanced anatomy class, because there are several Arroyo's in the human body while I was out there. I felt a horrible pain in my left side and I knew I was having a massive heart attack I had learned and about the signs and symptoms of a heart attack in my intro to geology class. I lost control of my body and fell down into the Arroyo. Breaking several bones.
My body was already dead at that point, so it didn't really hurt, but I was stuck started roaming.

I saw a hole in the ground, just big enough to fit in sight of, and hid that was where I met a kind tarantula named Nero I had taken cover and one of the entrances to his family's borough near, led me through a network of tunnels deep underground. I stayed with his Emily for several days, and they gave me excellent medical care there society is very communal and everyone I met made me feel super welcome. Although there was a language barrier Tarantulas communicate through vibration patterns made by drumming their legs against the earth. Nero big,
