Man I am not drinking when upset again. I broke Justin yesterday! Ever since we has rescued him he had been so distant and cold almost like a different person. It broke my heart to see him as such so I decided to confront him and find out what was wrong. We I would say argue but you can’t argue with someone who doesn’t feel. Suddenly whilst going through his stuff he froze and collapsed to the floor.

Я нашел рай и не может ждать, чтобы найти Бога, который проживает здесь.
(I found heaven and cannot wait to find the God who resides here.)
It all started if off when we set off driving again. The group made it to New York in good time to stop at an interesting magic shop where I was able to get my Jovar tuned up a little and some awesome gloves that help my fire attack. The shop keeper says I can use it up to 2 times a day or 1 big whammy. Rodrick got a black piece of fabric that he can use as a black smith woot woot. I asked him to work on my dash board and a necklace to hang my monocle on.

Afterwards Wendy led us to a shop where a “friend” of hers lives and works, his name was Johnny. He seems to fight evil creatures like us as well. He had a weird camera that not only takes your picture but reads you magic strength and what type it is. I now have a name for it “Hellfire”, but still no clue who gave it to me or why.

We met back up with Tristan in D.C. to prepare for our attack on the Disciples’ D.C. base. We agreed to attack at dusk.

Upon arriving it was not much to look at but the guard at the door was a brute. We made our way through the building almost getting blown up. On the second floor we set off a trap and the hall filled with skeletons and then the man who took Justin, Arthur. We fought our way through the hall trying not to get killed at the same time. At the end of the hall was a Huge nasty who took forever to fight but we won!!!

I got the cutest puppy ever and he seems to somehow be made of the same magic as mine, and Arthur seemed to be wearing some amazing magic armor so I may have taken it off him for Rodrick to clean and fix up for me.

Things began to rumble and shake so we ran for the stairs to save Justin in the basement. As we got there we found him looking a little worse for wears and a strange twinkle in his eyes that worries me a little.
ДА Джастин является безопасным, но его личность немного не в духе.
(YEAH Justin is safe but his personality is a bit out of sorts.)

As we ran for the truck and get away we are stopped by the FBI I thought my life was over.

They took us to their office and asked us all questions individually. They told me I had to leave the U.S.A. but if I continue to work for Wendy they would give me all I needed to return (I added a new bike to the deal). I told them if Wendy reads over it and is okay with it I would sign it. They returned our stuff and opened a magic door to The Planes.

Where I found my heaven. A world made out of nothing but machines. I oops and Asked a question that they felt was a little cruel but Auren smoothed it over for me so I got to go to their place of learning. I was given instructions for an hour and I learned more than I had my whole life.

As we continued onward we found out about their God and decided to go on an adventure and find him. We have made a stop on the way to rest it feels as if we have een walking for hours.

Чем больше я пишу в вас, тем больше я чувствую связь с Джастином и надеюсь, что он в порядке.
(The more I write in you the more I feel connected to Justin and hope he is alright.)

Today started with a bad night of sleep. After many hours of driving to keep my mind off our loss I finally loss my battle with fatigue and traded places to sleep in the back of the truck (Rodrick makes an okay pillow).

Who knows how much later I was awaken in a small town in the middle of nowhere North Carolina. It seems Auren stopped there because the town was covered in protection runes which upon closer inspection seem to be of the faith kind for protection. We decided to find a lounge for food and information and I reluctantly left the truck unprotected.

The food was awesome because I knew better and got lunch. We got info about the local legends and a list of locations to hit up for more. The first of which I was not about to step one foot in and it seems it didn’t have much use either (Rodrick got a charm for the truck it was silly but sweet). The second store was cool full of magic stuff in the back room. I got a monocle that enhances my ability to see magic but I had to pay for it by putting my hand a box that felt creepy. I will only ever do that again if I really, really want the item. Wendy and the old lady where mean looking at me like I was some childish kid not to be trusted with responsibility. :.(

We stopped at an old mans house got a little there then it was off to the woods. There we fallowed what seemed to be the sounds of fighting. In the woods we cam upon a sight not for the weak. A man surrounded by 5 cat tentacle things dodging in an impossible fashion as if they where not where they appear to be. The man (who has great taste in jackets) was able to take one out in a single swing but it is not as easy as it looks. I got yelled at by the stranger (Почему все так значит для меня сегодня) for missing once and that is another weird thing. A few of my shots seem to be not as hot as usual but burn longer. I will have to look into this new skill of mine.

After the cats where vanquished it turns out that we where just kitten murderers and Momma was out for revenge. I only take solace in the fact that they where killing the towns folks animals and we where helping. Momma was a tougher fight, I missed so many times I caught some trees on fire (маленькие пушистые зверьки, возможно, умер, я плачу за их прохождения) luckily I was able to put it out with a stronger blast. We came out on top and where able to talk to the stranger.

He is a hunter by profession named Tristan with a beautiful bike.

We made plans to set out in the morning for Washington D.C. and New York. Justin you will be safe before the month is over I promise.

Well today we found ourselves in a tiny town in North Carolina that, to be honest, I don’t even remember the name of. When we rolled in we noticed runes and sigils of various religions on the doors of basically every building there. They were used as protection from a creature of some sorts that’s been in the area for a decade.

Upon investigating we came to a shop different from any I’ve seen. It had a door in the back that I could sense a evil presence through. After talking the shopkeeper into letting us see her more exotic items, she led us through that door and we found ourselves looking at magically imbued items ranging from armor made of flesh to a monocle Anna bought to help her identify magical items. The strangest part was she payed for it by putting her hand in a black glove and it absorbed magic from her body. The shop keeper then gave me a small blue stone that has a natural pull towards a much larger stone in her shop and said we can use it to find other such shops. Very usefull.

When we left the shop we headed to a mans house who had an encounter of sorts with the local monster. He wasn’t thrilled by our presence but we managed to negotiate a claw from the creature for the price of way too many zeros which we’d be coming back for, unless we died horribly in the forest of course.

We headed into the forest next and herd the sounds of battle. Never turning down the opportunity to kill something that needs killing, we rushed towards the sound and found a man surrounded by 5 cat like tentacle equipped, things. We showed up just in time to watch him decapitate one. Nicely done sir.

After we killed them all, their momma wasn’t very happy. After killing her WE were quite happy. xD

The man we found turned out to be a known Hunter (at least to the tabloids) who apparently hates the Disciples as much as we do. So he accepted Wendys offer of payment to help us save Justin in D.C. with what I presume was happiness, kinda hard to tell with him.

But first we’re going to head to New York. Why? I have no clue. I assume Wendy will let us know in the morning.

Did I mention Anna caught the woods on fire? Gotta admit it was kinda funny. But there’s one thing I can say about her, she manages to make me smile every day. One way or another.

Last night we used Wendys credit card at a Hotel and set up a stake out across the street to see if the Disciples were using that to track our movements. It didn’t take long to work, they showed up the next day. We didn’t even realize it until Aurin noticed no one was leaving the building and very few would even go near it. So he headed over to it and went in through the back door hoping to get the drop on them.

They were ready for us. A Necromancer and his skeletons were waiting for us in the main lobby. The fight was going well until we summoned two huge dead flying dragon looking things, and he made a command to Justin and to our surprise Justin obeyed. It was like he didn’t know he was even doing it or was aware of anything around him for that matter. The Necromancer and Justin then flew off on the back of one of those things while we were stuck dealing with the other.

Luckily I had just borrowed Justins dagger earlier today so we can use it to track him. Unfortunately I had the opportunity to ask Odin a few questions directly and have decided we’re not ready for what would be laying in wait for us if we went straight after him. We don’t have the knowledge or experience to bring the fight directly to the Disciples. So now we’re off to find anyone else who might be like us to join our fight and if we fail I guess we’ll just have to fight the Disciples as we are because I will not leave Justin in there hands for long.

I would like to say that it is a new day but with the watch we did all night sleeping when it was not our turn. They feel as if they have run together. I had watch at the end of the night so I was one of the few that got a large chunk of sleep in one strip. Apparently at some point in time I hit Rodrick in my sleep. Maybe he deserved it? hehe

I got to teach Rodrck a little on sanding whilst we waited for something if anything to happen with our bobby trap. Around 1 or so I had an inkling for lunch and Rodrick agreed which is good because he was the one who would be making it. I showered he cooked.

After my shower the game was on. Auren had noticed odd goings well actually a lack there of during his watch. They asked me to take a look and yet again I could tell them that there was magic at work and a general sense of what kind. We formed a plan and headed out.

The hotel was covered in magic of all the bad kinds and the things inside where none the friendlier. We beat on them till 2 where dead but in all the commotion they got Justin. I still can not believe what I saw. He did what the bastard told him to do and left without a fight. I will cut his head off personally with a smile upon my face when we get Justin back.

We regrouped and headed out to find more like us willing to find to build an army to reclaim our friend.

HEHE this is my first time ever writing in one of these. Should I start with
Dear Diary NEVER I know
Today we finally make it to Little Rock Arkansas. We stopped to eat at a little diner and look at some magazines to gather information so we can locate Auren and I can ask him some questions. Wendy thought she found something so we headed out on a camping trip.

By the time we got to the end of the road and started walking it was dusk. The trail wasn’t too bad but even as night fell I could see uninhibited as if I could see in the dark. Cool I figured out a new power. We hiked until we came upon a lake. From the lake came this weird noise and out rose this weird lobster like monster ready for a fight.

I got a good hit on it then it grabbed me that hurt like a bitch! I got lose only to drop my sword in the water I decided it was time to retreat to a safe distance. The time chased us only to grab Rod. Without my sword I was not sure what to do so on a whim I tried throwing my fire at him and Bam! Flying fire balls hehehe.

After defeating it I found (well Justin found it) my sword and then we noticed someone watch again what is it with us and creepy watchers. It turned out to be Auren woot woot!

Rod Justin and I got a fire going and made some food. We all sat around talking Auren didn’t have any new information but told Wendy to relax I seemed to be in control DUH

We don’t see eye to eye on things but we get along well enough though it seems Wendy really likes him go for it girl. We came up with a plan to see if they are tracking by money it is a little slow but I got time to write this was fun I need to remember to thank Justin properly for the book.

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.

HOLY SHIT I HATE DRIVING!!!

3 days of driving really cramps your muscles.

When we left crater lake we decided to track down Auren, in Arkansas, who has the same powers as Anna and has had unwanted contact from the Disciples in the past. (And maybe a little extra wanted contact from Wendy, still investigating.) Sounds like a potential ally to me.
He’s been on the run from the Disciples since the California incident, which he was the cause of.

Instead of finding him we found some strange tentacle faced creature in a lake that decided to feel me up… with his entire face. Which reminds me, I really need a bath. After killing the bastard who had no respect for personal boundaries, we found Auren and caught him up on everything we’ve been through since meeting Wendy and got to know a bit more about his current situation and his past. Everywhere he goes the Disciples have been able to track him. Then Anna found an enchanted screwdriver that he had randomly picked up and was unaware was enchanted with some sort of tracking spell. It was then hurled into the lake and we set off to get away from it in hopes that was how they always knew were he was.

Well today was more interesting than i thought possible.

We drove to Crater Lake for some training were Anna proceeded to relentlessly melt snowmen with her green and black flames of awesomeness. She’s so cute when she’s motivated by anger. It wasn’t long before we had a visitor who turned out to be a spirit of the land. Apparently he sensed Anna’s power and asked if she would please stop because of it’s potential destructive power. I understand his concern but i believe Anna has more control over that fire than people give her credit for.

As we settled down for lunch we felt a disturbance on the mountain side so naturally we went to check it out. We found what looked like a portal to another plane and a women named Muninn whom I deduced was sent by Odin himself. She brought with her a huge metal construct that proceeded to test me, and my friends, to see if I was worthy of the magic he had instilled in me. I assume he had a pretty good idea that I was and that he was just wanting me to understand as well. With a little assistance from the spirit of the land we defeated it and I was given a set of beautifully crafted armor with the emblem of Odin adorned on it. Beautiful is actually a vast understatement.

Thank you Odin. I will strive to be the champion you know I’m capable of.
