Gaiman: On My Own Mother’s Grave

“‘How do I know you’ll keep your word?’ asked Coraline.

‘I swear it,’ said the other mother. ‘I swear it on my own mother’s grave.’

‘Does she have a grave?’ asked Coraline.

‘Oh yes,’ said the other mother. ‘I put her there myself. And when I found her trying to crawl out, I put her back in.'”

– Neil Gaiman, Coraline (p. 90)
