Kate Notes:

Interesting exclamation point choice. I would have opted for no punctuation or a period. It maybe that’s a millennial thing

“Max You’re fucking dead.” He is tho lol

I love how they yell secrets when the door is open

How could anyone know? He yells after loudly talking about the murder from last summer and his role in it

Friends anyone could know cause all of you are so bad at using your inside voices

Something rattling in the car as she drives

Babe pull over and investigate

A snake? Bees? Raccoon? Bird?

Huh. I didn’t guess Max with a crab in his mouth

The whirring of the ceiling fans

Very Scream where she’s so close to help yet they can’t hear her

A good man will keep his hook clean
