Epilogue 6

"Why aren't there more spirits around?"
Amy shrugged, "I don't know, Aaron. I never really thought about it. Perhaps its because we are new."
"New?" I replied quizzically, "How long have you been here?"
"Hard to say, but it doesn't feel very long. I hung around with another woman for a while, but she left."
"Yep, just plain old disappeared."
"Was she the only one?" I asked.
"More or less," she replied, "though sometimes you get a sense that others are near."

"What happened to you?"
"I don't know," she replied.
"You don't?"
"No. I went to bed one night, and woke up here."
"How strange. What do you think happened?"
She did not answer, but I sensed a darkness about her for the first time.
