"Oh, Sam," she would say, speaking into the vast emptiness. "I know it is hot, but I feel so very cold. My hands are cold. My feet are cold. My face is cold. My heart is cold."
Where's the money?
I don't know what you're talking about.
She buried it!
Kate Barlow had returned to Green Lake to find the lake dried up and the town gone. She found that she could still hear Sam's voice. Kate was broken.
Where's it buried?!
One day Trout Walker and his wife Linda showed up at the cabin. They demanded to know where Kate hid the money. Even though Linda pleaded with Kate, she refused to give the location of her money.
Keep walking, you're going to take us to it sooner or later.
Linda kept begging, she had married Trout Walker for his money, but ever since Kate had left, there was no lake, no money. But Kate only laughed, saying she didn't know where the money was. Then Linda saw the shovel.
Trout instantly raised his gun. demanding the location of the treasure. He fired at a window behind Kate. Even with this threat, Kate didn't let up, so Linda dragged her out of the house.
The two tied Kate's legs together and forced her to walk to her buried treasure. If she didn't walk, she was hit with a shovel. Her feet were blistered and sore, but Kate never told them anything.
Kate's legs soon gave out and she dropped to the ground. With much pestering from Linda and Trout, Kate stayed there until a yellow-spotted lizard came out and bit her ankle. The last thing she saw was the lizard's beady red eyes and Linda and Trout screaming at her.
