It all started one day when 9 year old sam was walking home from school. She thought she saw something in a ditch. So she put her stuff in her house and went to check it out. She walked over to the swamp near her house and climbed into the ditch. She noticed it was something raped in a blue blanket. So she opened the blanket and screamed. It was a dead man with a bullet hole in his chest. This made her very shy and changed her personality for a long time.
How it works

But she gets lost and has to spend the night in the swamp. She slept in a hollowed out stump.That night when she wakes up she hears something she peeks out of the stump and sees a figure. She noticed it was a man holding something over his shoulder. As he got closer she noticed it looked like something wrapped in a blanket with a shooles foot sticking out. She instantly got flashbacks of the dead man she saw. Later she found a house and met a new friend. He was called the weardo. He was in a plane crash and half his body was burned. They became good friends a sam became more open about her feelings and about her past. This changed her personality.
