They started their research at the library, where crotchety Gladys Morgan reluctantly loaned them a milk crate of old yellowed newspapers, warning them to read them, and “then let everything just be, and stop looking for answers”. They didn’t know at the beginning the trouble they would find.
Do they wish they hadn’t gone into the woods? Do they wish Sarah hadn’t shot the video? Sure. But that didn’t change anything. They still had to find out the secret of Skeleton Creek’s name. And they ignored every danger sign. They went too far, asked too many questions. And they learned about things that they never wanted to learn about.
