I still need to keep things interesting. Sylvie, too. I mean, we re kids, hospice hostages or not. We freak out visitors; I get my uncle to sneak me out for one insane Halloween night. Stuff like that. And Sylvie wants to make things even more "interesting." That girl s got big plans.Only Sylvie s father is so "nuclear-blasted" by what s happened to his little girl, he glows orange, I swear. That s one scary man, and he s not real fond of me.

We "will" pack in some living before we go. Trust me. So let s get to it.
