A parent holds a vacuum while an investigator with a pen and notepad stands nearby. A kid has entered the room.
Kid: Danny doesn’t like the noise from the vacuum.
Parent: He’s their imaginary friend.
Investigator: But… isn’t Danny the name of the man who was killed in this house?
Investigator and Parent stare at each other, aghast.
The kid has a big bowl of chocolate ice cream. Around them sits several new toys. The adults lean in expectantly.
Kid: Danny says he also wants strawberry ice cream.
Investigator: Okay, but then will he tell us who killed him?
Parent: We still haven’t gone to the zoo like he asked.
Investigator: Right. After the strawberry ice cream and the zoo trip, will he tell us who killed him?
