Blog #2 The backstory

September 5th, 2071

I met this girl today. Her name is Emily. She is the most beautiful girl you could find. She is smart and kind. She even likes pickle ball, Like me. I am still too scared to talk to her but everyday when I see her I get butterflies in my stomach. I dont know how I am going to get the courage to talk to her because Jimmothy, my only friend, has never had a girlfriend. So he doesn’t know how to help me. I will keep trying, ill keep you updated.

I finally talked to Emily. She is amazing and really likes to talk to me. She is funny and makes me really happy. We have a date this Friday. We will be going to the pickle ball tournament here in town. Ill let you know how it goes.

We kissed today. We are official and open about it. Her family is just as fun to be around as she is. My parents think I shouldn’t get into a relationship right now but I want to see where it goes. Things are going really well and I dont see an end in sight yet.

October 21st, 2071

We have been together for a month now and we spend every waking moment together. We have so many common interests and have so much fun together. If I am not at school I am at her house with her and her family. I feel like they have already accepted me as their family.

It has been a while since I have reported. Emily and I are going to be married in two months. It has been 10 months since we got together and I have had no regrets from it. I love her with all my heart and am excited to see what the future holds for us. My parents still haven’t really accepted her but I dont care, I want to spend the rest of my life with her. Also, there is a new experiment in town that is supposed to make you stronger. I think I will try it out and suprizeĀ  Emily with my new talents and strengths.

The experiment has ruined my life. It went well and I have all these new powers and strengths. But Emily wasnt happy that I did it without her. She tried to leave and I grabbed her with my new strength. I didnt know how strong I actually was with this new body. She collapsed on the floor lifeless. A mix of sadness and adrenaline rushed through my body. I was sad that she was gone, so sad I tried to end everything so many times. But I cant find a way to do it. Nothing works on my new body. But the adrenaline rush was so…. I cant even describe the feeling. All I can think of is killing someone else to get the same rush. That is all that is on my mind. I can barely eat and sleep. I crave that feeling…

    I like the journal entry idea here. It does make including “dialogue” pretty tricky, but I like how this helps us see how things happened for Steelheart.
