“So what does this get us?” Jeron asked. “I mean, sure, he was in a coma, and sure, he met Death. But—”

“But this means the method works!” Kyle said, ecstatically. “I just have to go into a coma, and boom! I meet her, and then I can kill her.”

“But how are you going to do that?” Jeron asked. “You can’t exactly take a weapon into a coma with you.”
