August 12th

(Continued...)

Death.

I can feel it calling.

I drove by Julie's house and noticed a suspicious car parked across the street. I knew for a fact that the Martin's didn't own a similar car. They owned a '76 Silverado.

So I kept driving and I found a nice hidden place to park and then I walked.

I was desperate. I could not keep the cops from stopping me tonight. She needed to die tonight, Diary. I wasn't prepared to use my backup plan but I had no other choice. I walked through a 10 acre yard in the moonlight carrying a filled gas can. The grass was wet and I was leaving footprints. It didn't matter, she has to die.

I broke in through the back door and crept in. The living room window was wide open. It left a perfect view of the staircase leading up to the bedroom on the second floor. The cop outside should be able to see anyone enter her bedroom.

It didn't matter. I poured gasoline throughout the back of the house and lit a match.

I ran, and I ran, until I passed out.

I don't know how long I was out. It couldn't have been more than a couple of minutes. I tasted the wet grass and felt the mud on my face.

I got up and ran. The house was fully lit. Huge clouds flew over my head. I got to my car and got out of there fast. I was coughing and my head pounded but I got away.

I'm tired. Goodnight Diary.



August 13th


Dear Diary,

I woke up exhausted. My whole body hurts but my face hurts the most. I looked in the mirror and I noticed I have a slight bruise on my cheek. I looked a little banged up.

After a quick soothing bath, I made a trip downstairs for the mail. I got this very disturbing piece of mail. It was from me. It was written on a piece of you, Diary.

I read the newspaper and watched the news. Turns out the fire destroyed the house. The media was tearing a new one into the police. They claimed they could have done more to save young Julie. They don't understand how something like this could happen with police parked outside.

I stole her work name tag on the way out. I decided to toss it out along with all the other pieces I stole, except you, Diary. It's not worth the risk. These little mementos are just going to get me caught and we can't have that.





From a torn page of Todd Casil's Diary

I don't mean to get you caught. I plan on killing you. I plan on killing us.

"I knew for a fact that the Martin's didn't own a similar car." Make and model, of the suspicious car, or at least make and color. If he's that attentive to detail he would know. I love Silverados!

"I could not keep the cops from stopping me tonight." Do you mean "I could not let the cops stop me tonight."? It seems to make more sense.

I like how you show us he is getting sloppy with the footprints in the wet grass. And, "The cop outside should be able to see anyone enter her bedroom." makes me think the mysterious "he" is getting mixed with the Madman. That quote in particular makes it sound like he's trying to get caught on purpose with the indicator being "should be able to see..." I like the confusion.

Dear God-he kept mementos?! Awesome!...yet creepy. I like this.

I do have to question something: He writes in the diary every day, like clockwork. If he's this good at writing and keeping up a diary (as shown by the entry about Todd - unless that was someone else's entry) I wonder why he didn't keep a diary before this. If he did, I wonder where the earlier entries are.

"From a torn page of Todd Casil's Diary // I don't mean to get you caught. I plan on killing you. I plan on killing us." Yes! Split personality! *does a happy dance*

I have no idea what Clue 2 means - I don't remember a Clue 1 either.

the Todd thing...it's tough to figure out..:)...but not frustrating..more intriguing..

the police thing earlier though...being cuffed without any evidence? it doesn't seem likely in this day and age...they'd have had to have something on him, tangible. and if they'd released him they'd be tailing him.....but the story is suspenseful enough to suspend disbelief...:)

Is it me, or is each entry increasing with action as time goes on? You've really gone far with this. The suspense is a real thriller, and it's very mysterious. Amazing job as always.

Job Corps the school I'm going to be going since I cant afford colleges here, or get enough loans or grants to cover my education...
It's a state funded school that actually pays you to go get your education.

I see, what state are you from? I just graduated a couple years back and I had mostly loans. I'm paying them off now, but it seems worth it.

I'm from Michigan. The problem for me isn't paying back the loans, it's that I can't get enough of them to cover going to any of the schools close by, even with not living on campus.
