Set post-high school with Daria off at Raft and Jane waiting until the next semester to go to BFAC, Jane remembers her long-ago comment, as it is the day before Thanksgiving. Ironically, she is by herself, her siblings long since moved out (save [[Trent Lane|Trent]] who is away at a gig), and her parents having left together for a job in Belize that morning. Daria has chosen to remain at Raft for the holiday and their friendship has drifted in the months since Daria has left.

Jane recieves a letter in the mail, one she always half-expected and dreaded. Her sister [[Penny Lane]], known for her sojourns in poor countries, has died, and the letter was sent by the local government to the next-of-kin. Upset by the news, Jane turns on the tv, only to see a local news report of a murder-suicide in the town where her sister [[Summer Lane]] lives, the family described chillingly similar to Summer's. Immediately following that story, the newscaster announces the crash of an airliner on it's way to Belize, unfortunately the same one Jane's parents were on. Frantic, Jane tries to call her sister Summer, only to be connected to a police officer, thus confriming her fear Summer's family was the one depicted on the news. On the verge of a breakdown, she tries to call her brother, Wind, to find his number has been diconnected.
