A – 61

A storm is coming. My uncle’s friend, Dr. Cooper, has built this incredible weather research station. A lot of the technology is based on stuff from the Other world. I didn’t know anyone even knew about all of the Other world stuff.

When we got there Uncle T landed the plane on a pad that rose out of the water. They have a secret hanger under the lagoon. There was someone from the past there. His name is Gerem. What a shock! I didn’t know that anyone from the past lived anywhere but in the cone. They have recreated the old world environment in a large arboretum.

Seth still isn’t talking to me.

We are going to the control center in a little while. I can hardly wait for his reaction.

I talked with Uncle T today about showing Seth something from our world that he wouldn’t have in his. Maybe if Seth realizes that we have wonders he hasn’t experienced, it will help him to cheer up a little.

Uncle T said that he had a friend that runs a weather research station in the Atlantic. They record hurricanes and help figure out why they happen. He called him and now it looks like we are going to go to an island and see a real hurricane.

It has been strange around Seth. Okay, strange with Seth in my head. He has sunk into a funk, even worse than before. I don’s know what to do. The thoughts coming from him are gray.

I went down to visit Oran today. He was an artist in his world. I guess he worked in one of the cities that was taken over by the Nephilim. He barely escaped with his life. I guess he was one of the leaders in the resistance against them.

While I was there he drew a picture of me. It is good, but strange to see myself with such white hair. I thought I would keep it here in my journal. When mom and dad come back they may want to see it.

Okay, life just got really strange. I was going with my uncle to town to get some supplies. We entered the crystal cavern and I got sick. No, I mean I really got sick. I felt like someone was trying to pull my brain out of my head. Then I felt like I was going to get sick.

Uncle T turned around and went back. We found out the same thing happened to Seth. Lume did an experiment and found out that something has happened to us. We, Seth and I, are now connected mentally. MENTALLY!! We are stuck having to stay by each other. We can’t be separate.

What’s worse is that our thoughts are really becoming mixed up. It is like I can’t shut him out. Both my thoughts and his are there. The same in his mind. And, it is getting worse. I have reacted to something only to figure out that it is not my thought, but Seth’s.

I can never go home. Seth and I are stuck together forever.

Sorry I haven’t written very much lately. There really hasn’t been much to write about. Seth seems to have sunk into a depression. I know he misses his home and is frustrated that he is stuck in our time.

His dreams are of his world. Sometimes he is trying to stay in his world and he gets sucked into ours. He wakes up in a sweat. I know because I wake up then too. I don’t know if he knows I am awake or not.

I feel like I am seeing more of his thoughts than I used to. Some of them I don’t think he would want me to see. I know some of my daydreams have escaped into his mind too. I get embarrassed. He hasn’t said anything, and I haven’t either.

I am going to talk to Mara about it. Maybe it is normal for their kind.

I am finally almost back to normal. Mara had made my skin and hair more transparent, like theirs is, for my trip back to the past. It has taken over a month to wear off. It has been a slow process.
Seth and I have been going down to the cove to swim almost every day. We have gone out into the main lake a couple of times. The large creature that lives in the lake has come after us twice. We have to wait a day or so before we go back out there.
I went up to the edge of the cone today and just sat and looked out over the mountains. It is an amazing view. So much has happened this summer. Most of what I though true about the world has changed.

I am feeling better today. It was the worse case of flu I have ever had. I had some weird dreams. I wonder how Seth handled it. He has been staying at his grandmother’s while I was sick.
I tried to convince Polly that I was better, but she won’t let me get up today. She says that I need rest. Yuk, I am tired of being in this bed.

I am even sicker today. I have slept most of the day. Seth has been in the room a lot — I think. I threw up twice today.

I have been having such weird dreams. In one I was running through a dark tunnel and there was water at the end that I had to jump into. The tunnel continued on the other side of it. There was a monster too. He was big and breathed fire.

Polly brought me up some chicken soup. Why does everyone think chicken soup is good when you are sick. It was funny though, I thought Seth was going to get sick when I started eating it.

I have to go back to sleep. I wish my mom was here.

A-17

Today I am home sick. I have cause something and have been in bed most of the day. I have a fever and I threw up once. Polly has been up a couple of times to check on me. Philo is away right now. Seth seems to be keeping his distance. Polly says it is because he has never been around anyone sick before and it kind of scares him.
Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow.

Seth spent most of the day with his grandmother today. I am not sure what is going on, but he really is down. Nothing I do seems to help.

I spent the day with Polly. She is a really short older mountain woman. Sometimes I have a hard time understanding her. When I tell her, she pauses like she is remembering something and then says it again. She uses different words that I can understand.

I guess she grew up somewhere on the east coast. She had a family, but was too busy with her career. Something happened and her family was killed in an accident. I guess she started drinking after that and wasted the next ten years of her life. She ended up in Alaska, broken and broke. Something happened and her life changed and she ended up living in a cabin near the mountain. But, by that time her mind was gone. It was through the help of some old mountain man that she regained her sanity.

She told these things to me while we were sitting out on her patio. There is a sadness in her eyes that makes you sad too. The old man had died a number of years ago and she just continued living in his house until it burned down. That was how she ended up here.

She looks old, and even frail, but she isn’t. We pulled weeds in her garden in the afternoon. I don’t like pulling weeds, but I like her so I did.

Seth came back from his grandmother’s in a better mood. I felt him coming before I saw him. It was kind of strange. It seems that I always know where he is and what he is feeling.
