Log Entry. Day 17.
I’m so cold in this place. I know I’m supposed to be, but this is something else. I’m clammy, I’m itchy. Something has been playing on my mind for days now. I keep thinking of my friend, but I can’t remember their name.
Log Entry. Day 20.
I keep seeing images off in the distance. Not images. Shapes. I’m not sure what they are. They’re not structures or ‘things’, they’re just shapes. Intangible. I’ll keep writing as I discover more. I feel like it must be the Fey, but I haven’t seen any. Aren’t they here? It’s all I can do to keep a smile on my face.
Log Entry. Day 23
I think my memory is coming back. Terrible memories, bubbling to the surface. I can’t keep it straight anymore. What am I doing in this desolate place? Where have they all gone? Why are they afraid of me? They run when I get close. I tried smiling.
Log Entry. Day 24.
I thought I saw something in the mirror I brought with me. More twisted images. I got a shock and broke it.
Log entry. Day 25.
Don’t talk about the friend. Must remember to smile.
Log Entry. Day 26.
I think it touched me. It touched my hands and now they’re arguing with each other. Still keeping my spirits up. Still SMILING.
It’s taking my memories to talk to me. SMILE SMILE SMILE.
Can’t SLEEP. The others? SLEPT and didn’t SMILE.
CAN’T SLEEP. IT WILL GET ME IF I SLEEP. HAPPY HAPPY.
DON’T WRITE IT DOWN. TOO LATE FOR ME. SMILE SMILE. IM GLAD SHES DEAD. SMILE!
DON’T DIE! DON’T DI! IF YOU DIE YOU GO FOREVER! FORGOTTEN! I KNOW BECAUSE I DON’T REMEMBER!
