'Yes,' he said. 'I put some of my things in the car. A guitar, and some clothes. Then I pushed my car over a cliff and burned it. The police found the burned car and thought I was dead. Everybody thought I was killed in the car crash.''But you faked the crash,' I said.
'Yes.''What did you do then?''My family hid me away for months. I tried to change into a different person - shorter hair, a moustache, quiet suits. All my money went to Greta and she changed her name to Ross. I told her to buy this island. Now I invest her money, the money that was mine. And now I'm "James Ross".''What about "Jake Rosso"? I asked. 'JakeRosso took drugs,'he said. 'Jake Rosso got drunk and crashed cars. He killed a young girl, so he had to "die". I can never forget the girl. I think about her every day .''And that's why you always look so sad,' I thought. I looked around the room. 'Why do you keep a room like this? Why do you keep the guitars, the posters and photographs?' James Ross did not speak for a minute. Then he said, 'I need to remember my old life, and what Jake Rosso was like. I'm never going to sing again and I'm never going to take drugs. But I need this room, to remember.' I looked at the posters and the photographs. And I looked at his sad face. 'I'm not going to say anything. I won't tell my mother, I won't tell anybody.' James Ross looked at me. 'I think you understand,' he said. 'I do,' I said. 'I've done bad things. I want to forget them, too. I needed to get away, to hide, too. That's why we came to England, to begin a new life. Yes, I understand.' He took my hand, and we walked out of the room and closed the door. I never went into the room again, and I didn't tell anybody. My mother and I left the island at the end of the summer. Soon after, I went to college. My life is better now. I work on a farm in England and my mother works in an office. My mother doesn't worry about me, because I'm happier now. I haven't been 'back to the island. But I know there's a 'dead man' living there.

'I can understand that,' I told him. 'I've taken drugs,
too., He looked surprised. 'You have?' 'Yes,' I said. 'After my father died, I was very unhappy and things went wrong for me too. But go on with your story.'
He went on. 'One night, I was driving my car. I was
drunk and - and I hit somebody. A young girl. She. . .
died. I killed her.' 'Oh, no!' 'Yes,' he said. 'She was fifteen years old. I wanted to die, too. The money didn't matter any more. Nothing mattered any more.'
'What did you do after the accident? I asked. 'I drove on in the car. I didn't stop, and I didn't tell the police. I had killed someone and I was afraid.' He looked afraid now. He put the guitar down and went on with his story. 'So I made a plan. Jake Rosso had to die, too. It was the best thing to do. And so . . . I "killed" him.' 'But you're still alive.' 'My family know I'm alive, but no other people know.' He looked at me. 'But now you know.' 'How did you do it? I asked. 'I told my family about my plan and I told Greta, my wife. At first they didn't like it. But after a long time, they said OK. Then I faked the car crash.'
