A woman finds a head in her mother's garden.

Things get weirder when the head talks to her....
The head rolled from the weeds to the tip of her worn pink gardening shoes. Her blood rushed and her feet froze in place, her legs locked like statues.
A million questions poured into her brain at once. Where did this head come from? Why was this head in her mother's garden? Who would drop such a thing in the garden?
Who murdered this man, and where was the rest of his body?
She had to call the police.
She turned and started to walk back to her mother's house.
"Where are you going?"
Elizabeth's heart jumped.
"You're not just going to leave me out here, are you?" the head asked.
