There were three of them. Key word: "e;Were."e; The Girls, all having died young, one at age 5, one at 13, and one at 24. Dead is dead, as they soon discover there is no possible way out, save unless The Soul Man appears and escorts them from their prison, this standard IOOF graveyard. The theme of the day is "e;should we stay or should we go?"e; Should the three make a break for it and return to where their lives served a semi-purpose or should they just bide their time here where death seems to hold nopurpose other than just to pass the time by wandering around reading grave markers and bitching about such things as being dead and still having to sh** and pee, being dead and having to digest scrounged berries and lizards, and being dead and having to drink from puddles, and dead, still, while feeling horribly sorry for themselves? Just send them to where there is a purpose, whether here, or back home, please! Choose your year, 1898, 1905, or 1984. Come with Bethel, Lyn, and Lenora as they plot their escape while waiting for the one they refer to as The Semi-Handsome man.
