 She never believes me. But you will, won't you? Please tell me you'll listen. Well, everyone in town is scared of it - the crow, I mean. It's pretty big for a crow.

A real shame. But that's not the only reason no one 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 boys died...or it was someone they knew. All I know is that they found a black feather on the body. Today, I was the first person to see it. So, just to let you know, I may be killed in a...
