On the Day of the Dead, families decorate the cemetery's tombstones with chrysanthemums of all colors according to French tradition.
Even amid the rainbow of petals, one grave stands out. The last resting place of the young man who died six months ago. His mother brings him roses, while lamenting that her son's "not there."
As the resident ghosts, Robert and Clothilde can indeed confirm his absence in the afterlife — but it may not be for the usual reasons.
This story is included in the collection Unfinished Business, Volume 2.
