Anna decided that it would be best if we could track down this “Auren” person. I guess he has the same power that she does. Problem is that Wendy has told us again and again that he doesn’t know anything about it either. Sometimes, Anna doesn’t really listen, but I don’t have anywhere else to go. I don’t want to argue the point, so it’s back on the road.
I hate the road, even if it’s pretty much all I’ve ever known. We drive by all these little towns and I can’t help but wonder what it would be like to live a life like that. I doubt I’ll ever manage it. That’s a life that humans lead.
I’m not human.
Mother always scolded me when I thought about it like that. She always told me that I’m no different than any other human. I think… she didn’t want me to start thinking that I was less than human. Lower than them. For some reason, I feel that’s how I should think. Yet, I also feel that some part of me thinks that I’m better than they are. Stronger than they are.
…This is all just a waste of time. There’s no point in wishing that I was something I’m not.
We found a monster living in a lake. It… was unpleasant. Some sort of giant, tentacled insect if I were to guess. Monsters come in all sorts of shapes. Together, we killed it and Wendy managed to find Auren nearby. I guess he attracts monsters somehow.
…When I saw him, I had this strange feeling that we’d met before. I guess he felt the same way, but the chances of that were far too small to even consider the feeling past my initial reaction. He was very polite, avoided eye contact, and was about as clueless on the fire and it’s origins as Wendy had told us he was.
It took some convincing, but we managed to talk him into coming with us for now. I just hope that it will lead to something good.
