Diary of Gold Rush - Katrin's secret friend

Friday April 20, 1849 

After the fight, we went to bed. No one said anything about the battle. At breakfast that next morning, Sophia, Olivia, Abigail and were talking about their mom. After breakfast, I went to my wagon to play with August. The triplets followed. I asked them if they wanted to play, and they said yes. They told me that they had their own dolls and they would go get them....

Diary of Gold Rush- Katrina's Battle

 

Saturday April 14, 1849

Today was the BEST day EVER!!! First I woke up and it was 6:00. Of course i’m NOT allowed to get up at that hour, so I had to contain my excitement until 6:55. Then I woke Kadyn and Dad up. And as I have mentioned before, I really didn’t think I got any presents. But I was WRONG!!! Dad got a present for me before we left for...

Dear Diary- Yesterday I told you about the Indians. I was right. Sadly though. Dad said that we have to battle them sooner or later. That’s why every morning when I wake up, I pray that we don’t have to battle them today. So far, my luck’s good. I have good news!!! Kadyn got better at last! I know I haven’t been talking about him lately,...

A Statement

We said we'd be wild for a night.

Just one night, just to try it, see what it felt like.

It was going to be our secret safari.

Popping corks.

Glass glint in moonlight.

Fizzing in the pits of our chests.

We stood and laughed and let the sea steal sand between our toes.

And we held hands and I kissed one of them but I can't remember who.

Someone suggested we climb up to the cloud castles and that seemed legitimate...

Personae Non Gratae

It was actually many weeks before they twigged that something was Not Quite Right.

Months.

We were sly, you see. We blended in with exquisite craft, infallible expertise.

And they were so gullible.

 

We worked with them.

Bought their clothes.

Shopped with them, ate with them.

Our children played together in the English sunshine, next to the English roses.

And they never thought anything of it.

 

Not until that one time.

That one mistake.

When the words just slipped past the lips...

homo homini lupus

there is a wild

wolf that lives somewhere in the forest

and eats little pigs all in threes.

it could rip out your throat

in a second

and its howl could cut out your knees.

it's angry and lonely and

knows only the kill

and its footsteps are painted with blood.

it's a storybook wolf,

a monster of myth,

and it will drag you into the mud.

that's the whisper they tell

to their children,

those wolves who live in...

Mediums, Feathers, Wings, and Storms

A happy medium is finding the center of the contradictions.

If hope is the thing with feathers, then what is the thing with wings?

Doing nothing during a storm is just as bad as standing in the middle of it.

She and Books and Life

They said that every book on her shelf would be there for one of two reasons. 

 

One.

Teach her a lesson. Open those stubborn, heavy eyelids of hers. Tell it to her as it is and not as she would wish it to be.

 

Two. 

Be a comforting friend and a lifetime love whose words have been rolled around in her mouth so many times that on any given day, if asked, she could trace every curvature of...

It's time

The wind rushed in though the open window, the curtains violently rustling and my cold feet sticking out the end of the bed sheets. A large lump sat upon the bed, I knew it was Fluffball, she meowed a vicous meow as I turned restlessly in my bed. Would it ever be morning? Fluffball leaped from the bed and disappered in the darkness of the room, the moonlight faint tonight. I heard Fluffball screach and scramble away, finally now I could sleep...
