Miss u. Why aren’t you emailing me back? J 30 | B E K K A B L A C K page 1 of 2 From: To: Subject: Sent: Mina Murray Jonathan Harker You ok? June 14 5:05 PM Jonathan, I am worried about you. S. Are you sure that’s a good idea? Is that even legal? Who knows what microbes might be in that soil? Hope you didn’t drink too much at that farewell dinner and do something stupid (like usual). I went to the cemetery with Lucy today. It’s been exactly nine months since her mom died. At least she didn’t cry this time.
