Uhhh DUDE, the virus is happening now, in 2020, Abigail died sometime during the early 1900s! 

Corona is a name of a California city. Look at my spoiler.:wilson_sneaky:

Incredibly meticulous work, Rinkusan! I'm certain now this is how Abigail died.

Thank-you for your detailed presentation and all of the hard work and research you put into it.

It's like if there was a theory based entirely around that one Malbatross scream in the Salty Dog trailer actually being Wes, y'know?

I want to
believe

I think Abigail fell from cliff and drowned. Flower bush and everything after was only in Wendy's imagination.

If Wendy's imagination only took hold after the flower bush scene, Jack would be a really bad caretaker for not wondering where Abigail is and locking her outside. 

@Sunset Skye I went back to the short to investigate a bit more. While what you're saying is still possible, I'm even more confident now that whatever that screeching noise is, it is not Abigail's scream because the entire short had no other instances of character voices even though they are visually making noise from their mouths. Basically, I think Klei intended for this short to be a silent film of sorts, and if that was Abigail's scream, it isn't consistent with the rest of the short. Here are some notable instances that had no "voice audio".

Scenes before flower bush is a day of Abigail's death. After flower bush we have scenes some days/weeks/months after tragedy when Wendy is in mourning. (But The flower bush scene in only in Wendy's imagination.)

And I also think that house is not placed at sea because Abigail's flower looks like chrizantemum and these flowers can't grow at sea.

While technically possible, do you have any evidence to suggest that only the flower scene is in her imagination while everything else, including the scenes prior, are real?

I covered your second point in the original post in the real-world analysis section.

Look at flower "on the wind" at the beginning of animation. When flower was close to Wendy, Abigail has appeared. Similary this flower is at the end but then we have Abigail in ghost form.

I'm not sure I follow. How does the red flower in the wind show that the scenes prior to Abigail landing in the bush were reality and not Wendy's imagination?

You know it's interpretation but you can find proof that Abigail drowned in Wendy's quotes e.g. pond.

I think it's just your interpretation; calling this quote a proof is greatly exaggerating. 

POND = "Ophelia? Are you down there?"

Or did you mean a different quote? Because I didn't find and can't recall any other with a similar subject.
