Panel 1 - “kids, your father will be just fine, like he said, it’s probably just raccoons. Those little guys can cause quite a hassle for campers like us” the mother says to her two twin sons beside her in the tent.
Panel 2 - “Hey buddy, just what in the fuck do you think you’re doing” says the father from outside the tent.
“kids, come here with me, get into this sleeping bag, I’m gonna zip it up all the way. Count to 1000 for me okay”

Panel 5 - in an instant the tent bursts into flames. The screams of the boys from inside the sleeping bag fill their mothers ears.
Panel 6 - the zippers stuck… “oh fuck, this can’t be happening, this isn’t happening.” Sobs their mother as she tries to unzip the sleeping bag, the skin on her fingers blistering and melting from the flames licking their way across her body.
Panel 7 - The smoke is so dense, the smell of burning flesh and hair is over powering. “I’m sorry boys” she whispers to the now silent mounds in the sleeping bag.
Panel 8 - “SARAH, SARAH” screams her husband from behind the wall of fire.
Panel 9 - “it’s all my fault” chokes Sarah, lying on top of the sleeping bag containing her former children. As the exposed blackened bones in her arms glisten in the firelight, she dies.

Panel 4 - “no I haven’t decided what I’ll do with this next part of my life. No I really don’t think I’ll get this out of my system from a vacation. No I’ve made up my mind, sell it, split the money among everyone, think of it as their severance.”
Panel 5 - “Yes, I’ll be going to live in the town on the outskirts of Sasquatch forest. Why? Because that’s where I’ll find him. Now I’m through with this, you won’t hear from me anymore, from here on out my attorneys shall be handling everything. Goodbye.

Panel 21 - “well I had a little experience driving some pretty heavy vehicles back in ‘Nam and I had a brief stint of driving 18 wheelers for some companies up state for a few years. But that was before I got into business so it’s been a fair amount of time since I’ve driven anything bigger than a car but I’m sure it’ll all come back to me. You know, it’ll be like riding a bike.”

Panel 25 - smiling for the first time since his family’s deaths. “I couldn’t accept that right now, we just met, it would be taking advantage of you, how do you know I’m not some crazed killer looking for the murderer of my family to kill him with my bare hands? But it’s really okay, I’m staying at the hotel uptown for the time being.”
Panel 26 - she looks shocked and taken aback by his strangely dark sense of humor. He says before stepping out the door “we’ll be seeing each other enough if I’m going to try and get my bus drivers license. But yeah, give me a call whenever you hear about some course time, or just if you’re ever looking for something to do.”
Panel 27 - he gets into his car looking back at the DMV in his rear view mirror he smiled for the second time that day.

Panel 6 - QUICK FLASH BACK
Sarah and the bus driver are standing in the kitchen of their home “you realize the kids have hardly seen you in over a month, and by the time you come home I’m already in bed ready to pass out. There’s no way that place can be more important to you than your own family. It’s not fair to me and definitely not fair to the kids.”
Panel 7 - “you’re right Sarah, you’re always right, I’m sorry, how about this, we’ll go on a family camping trip in a couple weeks. No business talk, no phones no contact with the outside world. You are right though, I lost sight of what’s important to me. It’ll be nice to spend some time with the only people that actually matter to me.
Panel 8 - back in the DMV woman’s dining room “I guess you could say I just never made time for a love life.
Panel 9 - “say this is a bit off topic but… Do the Sasquatch people ever come to town?
Panel 10 - “not very often, every once in a while you’ll see one walking around but don’t worry, they don’t hurt people, they’re just sightseers.

Panel 2 - “you really think we can trust him? i mean he even utters a vague description of us to anyone and the boss is gonna know where to start his head hunt.”
Panel 3 - “come on, this guy seems like a fairly level headed individual, he knows he’s getting off easy on this one, he knows he could be dead and left for the coyotes at this point, besides… we’re hitmen, word gets around fairly quick and if we get word that he’s been talking… we could just track him down, sneak up behind him and severe his head from his neck via piano wire.
Panel 4 - the bus driver still sitting in the back of the cop car speaks up for the first time “If it’s any consolation to either of you i really would like to just go home and tell my wife a Sasquatch ran in front of my bus today. That’s it that’s all.”

Panel 6 - “you know what, I trust this guy.” “Yeah, I think you’re right, he’s obviously not stupid, you recognize him don’t you?
Panel 7 - “yeah, he’s the one the boss was doing business with a while back isn’t he?”
