A(nother) Year in Seattle – Week 26 – Shut in

The situation being what it was, the entries for Jess were … terse (handwritten with translations).  Another reason for the story to be told in the third person.

Sunday – December 21, 2059 – Winter Solstice

They almost found me…I don’t know what to think…
what to do. I can’t stay long but.. people need to know what’s happening
What am I thinking? I don’t KNOW!
Dwight and I got a call– heart attack… All those
people…All those people are dead or Hiding like me…
Dwight got out. He almost didn’t…
I thought it was a power glitch… I thought it would
all be over… It almost was.
I almost went into one of the secure booths… but
he was there… the blue man… my protector…
If I hadn’t… I’d be like the others

Monday – December 22, 2059 –

I can’t tell time anymore… nothing is safe…
They’re everywhere… I started a “head” entry
and they almost found me…
Okay… We got the call… we were leaving when
the power went out. I ordered Dwight out… the
Security doors were closing… then … then the
shooting started… I thought it was a raid…
a gang fight… not the building’s security not…
this insanity…
Nothing is safe!

 

Tuesday – December 23, 2059 –

— I wish… No I don’t… I’m not getting
out of this… Nobody is. They’re killing us…
or rounding us up…
I can’t even explain… it’s insanity.
… I saw Bull… He and Ange broke in…
… I tried to warn them…
Ange has the tape…
Bull Never Had a chance…

 

Wednesday – December 24, 2059 –

I don’t know if I’ll get out…
I do know if I stay… I’ll die…
or go mad…
the machines have taken over…
We are expendable.
We are … test subjects
and they’re getting
better at killing us!

 

Thursday – December 25, 2059 – Christmas presents

… I was fighting… They were everywhere… and they almost had us… The best Christmas present… Case… and Dwight… and a small army of orcs…

So many others…


Friday – December 26, 2059 relief

Dwight and Case won’t let me out of the underground– they smuggled Bri in… but it’s only a matter of time.

Too many people knew I was in there… too many people…


Saturday – December 27, 2059 – Held for questioning

I’ve told them all I can– but its not enough. They want to go deeper– want me to remember more… and now… Now I’m at their mercy.

I avoided IT’S experiments only to be subjected to theirs. It’s not fair… but it has to end… it just has too.
