Scarecrow of 1889

There once was a boy who was an orphan and suffered abuse from his village residents. The only friend he had was the dummy scarecrow on the field, whom he talked to. One day, a wealthy man brutally beat the boy. The next morning, the wealthy man was found dead, and the scarecrow was covered in blood.  Terrified, the villagers were convinced that the scarecrow had come to life to avenge its tormented friend. And it was the last scarecrow ever placed again in the fields, considering it a sign of death.  —   After scarecrow dolls begin appearing in the streets of Riddleford next to murder victims, the town is thrown into chaos. When the hunt for the mystery scarecrow murderer begins, it is only a matter of time before the famous Frontier Hall Opera House employees are subjected to suspicion, each protecting a secret of their own. But is that all that is going on? Or is there something unseen?

Distressed situation

On one evening, Sylvester returned to his apartment building, the weight of his mother's fate still heavy on his shoulders. His worry for his sister and his own safety lingered, casting a shadow over his every step. As he set foot inside, on the verge of ascending the stairs, Margot emerged from her doorway, offering her condolences.

"I'm sorry about your mother, Vester. She was a remarkable woman," Margot expressed sympathetically.

Sylvester managed a faint smile in return, murmuring his gratitude. "Thank you, Margot."

"Would you like to join me for supper? I made plenty for two," Margot suggested, her eyes hopeful.
