I'm not the kind of guy that believes in that superstition or crap, but I do believe that August's still out there. He was too skilled to have died at the height of his days. And I think the adults would've published his death in the papers with a proud victory.
Whatever they say, whatever they think, I'll know one thing. August is still there, running through the hard ground without a track and rescuing kids from their captivity. One day though, I think we'll find some print of his. Something left behind. And one day, we'll find him.
