When Jonny went down to get orange juice, he saw everyone eating the heart. He was sick to his stomach. He went back upstairs and got ready to go to bed. In the middle of the night, he heard:
“Jonny, give me back my heart, I’m three blocks away from your house.”
“Jonny, give me back my heart, I’m two blocks away from your house.”
“Jonny, give me back my heart, I’m one block away from your house, I want my heart back.”

“Jonny, I’m on your house steps.”
“Jonny, I opened the door and now I’m walking up the stairs.”
“Jonny, I’m by your room door. I want my heart back.”
“Jonny, I’m by your bed, I have to tell you something…........
