Behind us, Mr. Davenport – or Cecil – continues to yell at the photographer. I wonder if he will ever get tired of hearing his own voice. I know I already am. Eventually the shouting is drowned out by the chirping of birds and Delphine’s heels on the pathway. I concentrate on making sure I lead Delphine to the right suite while also taking into account everything around me. Like how she isn’t wearing gloves and her hands are free of rings. How there is a delicate gold necklace with a pendant around her neck. I can’t really make out what the pendant says, but it’s very pretty and understated. This close, I can smell Delphine’s perfume. It is a mixture of lavender and rose, and I think I can smell hints of patchouli. Scents are really important when you are a detective.

But that’s not the whole story.

Where should I start? The first time I felt my life hanging in the balance? Or the moment I believed the deceased had a way of talking to me? Or maybe I ought to begin with the second I walked into that school. Looking back, I should have been suspicious from day one, but now I know that when you want something badly enough, you’ll do anything to get it.
You’ll lie to your friends.
Steal from your family.
Eat a whole box of orange Creamsicles.
You might go as far as taking The Dare.
