EPISODE 1: THE MARIGOLD PROCLAMATION
Friday on the 14th day of October in the year 2016…
I don’t have long. Don’t have time to tell it all now.
You see, they’re watching. Always watching.
It started with Marigolds in the window.
It started a year ago when #Marigolds went viral.
‘The flowers will connect you with the dead.’
Those were the first words of the government necromancer, Crowley.
Unlike other political parties, The Party of the Dead did not knock on doors.
Can we count on your vote? was simply a question they did not need to ask.
‘Put Marigold’s in your window.’
That was it.
It was new. It was a gimmick and it worked. It was a landslide.
I suppose it’s our fault…Well, not mine exactly.
I’m too young to vote, but the adults got it wrong – again!
They thought it was fun. Like voting for Jedi’s.
But they didn’t think everyone else would do it.
The Marigold Proclamation changed everything.
The promise of being reunited with loved ones that had passed on beyond the veil of life.
Crowley showed us: Live on the BBC.
Celebrities in the graveyard looked on as their dead returned from the earth.
Some fainted. Some cried. Some got a new TV series out of it…but everyone was watching.
I was watching. Dad was watching.
We looked at each other and then at the empty armchair between us.
We both said it. At the same time. ‘Mum!’
We wanted her back.
The Marigold’s went in the window. The vote cast…
Need to stop now.
They are watching. Always watching.
But I have more to tell.
More to say.
But not now…not now.
Though I will tell you this much, my friend…
The dead are coming.
