Happy Fourth of July… Not really though.copyright protection69PENANAXBICnUKPl9

But I’m amazed I still know the date, although I have no idea whether it’s Monday or Saturday really. My eyes are blue a lot now. Thankfully I don’t have to worry about clothes; we find shops every now and then. Stalkers don’t care whether you’re wearing green or red.copyright protection69PENANAItkzciadit

I’m getting better at killing Stalkers. They go down with more ease and I’m getting stronger every day. That’s good, at least. My eyes never change from blue though.copyright protection69PENANAK1OnNFh4f5

I took down four Stalkers by myself today. Uncle was proud, for lack of a better word.  I actually smiled when I did it, which scared me.copyright protection69PENANAXLjOt43amq

I even avoided getting buckets of blood on me. Also, it’s getting colder. As we’ve headed north we’ve had to salvage clothes from stores along the way. Like coats, scarves, and things like that. Because of the shorter nights, we’ve been camping early, so I’ve had a lot of time to write. I made up a fable about Stalkers. It goes like this:copyright protection69PENANAHv6MZoY1Br

Uncle has been keeping something from me. He’s been working on something almost every night. But whenever I try to find out what it is, he tells me to shoo. I wonder what it is.copyright protection69PENANA7DZTxQQDtz

Diarycopyright protection69PENANAWxrVrYMhCg

I finally figured out what the heck Uncle has been working on. He gave it to me this morning. A bow! I totally forgot today was Christmas, and so I felt bad I didn’t get him anything. He even showed me how to make arrows. But thankfully I found a canteen in a random mall, so I gave that to him. He could have gotten it himself, but his eyes lit up when he saw it. I guess it’s the thought that counts? We tried to make it a happy Christmas, even ate some deer meat we’ve been saving. I felt a happiness I haven’t felt in months. And I think, all today, my eyes were just purple.copyright protection69PENANARi5jGjY2i0

It feels weird to write 2009… For so long it’s been 2008… Anyway, I was just thinking about Gracie today. I wonder if she made it. I want to hope on hope that she did. I miss her a lot.copyright protection69PENANAsXmCDhdhZ6

Diarycopyright protection69PENANAGN02pDkDVk

Uncle seems agitated. We’ve started to camp in trees, and he showed me how to make sure Stalkers don’t know when we’re up one. He keeps saying to plan ahead; to always have a second exit just in case. I wonder what he’s up to. I couldn’t figure out what he was doing on Christmas, so I doubt I’ll figure it out.copyright protection69PENANAKuiAEjs5Hm

I’ve been thinking.copyright protection69PENANAvK4OrP6CTI

Uncle is the only other human I’ve seen since that day long ago, right before we rode up the mountain of Silver Creek. I kissed my Daddy goodbye, and I gave my Mother a hug. I feel so lonely without them. And I realize I’ve been trying to hide my feelings, trying to ignore them. But I know,  if I let myself feel them, I’m afraid I’ll go crazy.copyright protection69PENANA700p8l7T0t

Ps: I looked in a shard of mirror that I found in an abandoned house. My eyes have turned grey. They haven’t changed back at all. I put the mirror shard in my pack to bring along to check if they are grey all the time. I should ask Uncle about it. I’m sure he’s noticed, whenever he looks at my eyes, he gets a sad look on his face.copyright protection69PENANAdUghJI7Pk0

He said it will probably stay that color for a while. I cannot imagine my eyes ever returning to purple again, much less blue. At least I don’t hate grey.copyright protection69PENANAwjCNBlvIaQ
