The strawberry spring took place in New Sharon on March 16th, 1968. At first, it began to snow a lot and then as it started to get dark, the fog came up from under the bridge and moved through the narrow college avenues and thoroughfares.
There is a murderer on the loose during the strawberry spring and no one knows who it is but everyone is on the lookout.
Trunk. What an ugly word!
Every time there is a killing, he is either out walking or part of him is out there. He saw many shadows and he thought that one of the shadows he saw could've been Springheel Jack.
His wife is furious because he was gone last night and all he can remember is turning on his headlights to search through the fog.
Where were you last night!!!
He has been thinking about the word "trunk" and why it is an ugly word. He is also wondering why he is afraid to open his trunk.
He could hear his wife crying in the other room. She thought that he was with another woman last night and he thinks so too.
