In this blog post I tried to show a journal that the main character would have and what he would write down in the last few days of his begining troubles.
Journal Entry #1: It seems that the voices weren’t from my parents arguing. It baffled me where in the world the voices came from. I refuse to accept that I’ve gone crazy or something like that. I figured it was probably someone outside but I knew those voices belonged to my parents. Matty said he heard nothing, and now he must think something’s wrong. The last thing I need is for my brother to worry about me, if he does he’ll end up telling our parents. Hopefully by tomorrow the voices will go away.
Journal Entry #2: I like the new girl, Daisy, from school. My fantasies of her and I being together are so real to me. My imagination leaves me wishing that it was reality. She’s only been here a few days and I’m pushing the word “love” into my head. When I talked to her she looked completely uninterested. Maybe it’s because I don’t know how to talk to pretty girls. It shocked me that she wasn’t Chinese. She must think our school is bad now that everyone kept saying and thinking she was Chinese. I thought she was too. I don’t think I could take it if she didn’t like me.
Journal Entry #3: The voices have returned. This time I heard them in the café while I was with Matty. To make things worse my uncle showed up stuttering like a fool. A voice that belonged to my uncle told me that he controlled the voices and that only he could stop them. I was terrified, what am I going to do now? My uncle may not even know about these voices, yet he’s telling me things I don’t know where from. If this continues I’m afraid I’ll have to go to some mental hospital. That is the LAST thing I want to happen.
