I’ve been possessed since age six.
             Five insufferable years ago!

I passed his graveyard without holding my breath. Sucked him in.
             Moment still haunts me.

Old Cobb fought in the Great War; he knows things.
             Except how to escape.

Good grades and friendship! Love our tight bond.

He’s fun, jumped into a puddle once, and splashed Mom completely. Told her Cobb made me; she accused me of lying.
