"… I knew my daughter waited for me there. So clear, I could feel her. I could feel a piece of my pop, too. It was like I was a part of everything that I ever loved, and we were all the 3 of us, just fadin’ out. And all I had to do was let go and I did. I said, “Darkness, yeah!” and I disappeared. But I could still feel her love there, even more than before. Nothing, there was nothing but that love. And I woke up."
My favorite thing is this idea that they somehow are able to silently stalk people despite being almost 100-foot tall skeletons, because no one looks up.
Gashadokuro aka the starving skeletons are the reanimated and combined bones of the victims of starvation. Up to a hundred feet tall, they are heralded by the sound of bells ringing in the ears of their victims. They reach down from above to capture people and bit their heads off. The Gashadokuro haunt the darkness after midnight.
Growing up as children together just a block apart, Michael and Olympia DeNittis were meant to spend their lives together. The couple grew up and married and were married for 67 years. Recently the couple died just 32 hours apart. Olympia died first at the age of 95 and the family decided not to tell Michael. The morning after Olympia died, Michael, asked his family about Olympia because he had a dream in his own hospital bed the night before. In the dream Michael says he saw Olympia’s death. Even though his family assured him she was fine, he died just a short time later. You often hear about couple so in love that one cannot live without the other but generally they know the other person died. In this case, it makes you really believe in dreams and messages from the other side. It also makes you believe in a love that is elusive and everlasting. They spent their lives together and loved and lived, and ultimately died together. They probably wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
My father had taught me to be nice first, because you can always be mean later, but once you’ve been mean to someone, they won’t believe the nice anymore. So be nice, be nice, until it’s time to stop being nice, then destroy them.
