“Why are zombies so scary looking?”

“Because they are made-up characters in a story, and the illustrator chose to draw them that way.”

“Why do they come out at night?”

“Because the person who wrote the story wanted it to happen at night. They’re not real, Tyler.”

“Yes they are. Jack told me.”

“What did Jack tell you?”

“He ate one. It lives inside him.”

“Tyler, he’s telling you stories. They’re not true.”

“They are true.”

“Tyler, who do you think might know more? Me or Jack?”

Silence.

“Jack.”
