S-s-s-so. I managed to get myself in earlier..It was tricky, and I had to use some chemicals from dads lab to melt the lock. But I did it.
Sadly, I ended up getting caught by Uncle Evander’s guards. Apparently he told some of them to include that room in their rounds..B-but I was in there for…
O-oh wow…Is everything going to be alright? I mean, i-it’s really cool that you managed to get the documents, b-but I hope you’re not going to be in too much trouble…
(Sorry for the late response, by the way! The last couple weeks have been busy, so I’m just now catching up on things.)
I..It should be all fine..A-and a little trouble is-is okay if it’s for the sake of making a discovery, r-right? I’m glad I was able to get them..
(It’s alright! Y-you didn’t really miss too much on my end. Besides this whole book thing, but it’s good to hear you’re doing okay!)
G-good point. Still, hopefully things will turn out okay…I read some of the earlier entries you posted, and I can’t say I blame you for wanting to get down to the bottom of things. I can’t imagine having such a huge mystery in your own family! A-and I know there’s n-not much I can probably do, but if you need any assistance at all…Well, I’m right here.
I-I’m sure everything will be alright! No need to worry, I mean..It’s not like I do things like this too often..s-so I probably won’t get in too much trouble..r-right?
It’s..It’s just really s-so confusing! I mean, I can’t help but wonder how I didn’t know any of this..And..what if no one else knows, either? It’s so shocking to think that there would be secrets like this being kept from the rest of the Netherworld. It has to be pretty bad for it to be kept a secret like this..A-ah, I’ll be quiet before I start rambling again.
And thank you, Jasper. I-if I need anything, I’ll be sure to let you know. I appriciate it!
I h-hope so…I’d hate to see you get in trouble for s-something as harmless as curiosity, e-especially since it sounds like you’re one of the best-behaved people of y-your siblings…
I’ve never heard of anything like it. The Netherworld has a vast history, b-but this goes beyond anything I’ve ever read about…And a cover-up of that level has to signify something important, doesn’t it? Considering the stuff they put down in textbooks, I c-can’t even begin to imagine what sort of thing would be so bad that they’d want to hide it. It’s n-none of my business, but…I have to wonder. And you’re not rambling at all! It’s fascinating. Confusing and maybe a little scary, but it’s interesting.
N-no problem! I know I can’t do much, but at the very least, I can try to do some research to help you piece this together - I’m on break from school, so I have a lot more free time.
I-it would be unfortunate..B-but I guess that’s just sort of the price of knowledge..? You know, you have to sacrifice a bit, and risk getting in trouble. But you learn some things that you never thought could be true, you know? A-and I’m sure it won’t be too bad..I might get some of my things taken away, at the worst. So if you don’t hear from me on here for a while…well…
I haven’t either, and it c-certainly does..I-if you want, once I crack these open. I can try and keep you posted on what I find out..? I-if you want to, that is. Like you said, it could be scary. Especially considering what sort of people all of this involves. I mean, who knows what I could find..
Well, help is help no matter the amount of it. And either way i-it’s a really nice gesture. A-and any help would be appriciated, considering how fragmented some of it might be. I-I’ll try not to bother you unless I’m completely stuck, though. You should be enjoying your break.
Good point. I mean, w-we’d never learn anything if we didn’t take risks, right? It’s not a-always the safest thing, but it’s worth it for the discoveries that you make in the process. O-of all people, I think your dad would understand that; he’s had to take some p-pretty big risks in his line of work, after all.
Absolutely! I-if it’s not a problem for you, that is. They’re your family records, after all, and I don’t want to be nosy. No matter how scary it is, w-who knows what sort of knowledge we could uncover? This stuff could rewrite the records of the entire Netherworld for all we know. W-what do we have to lose?
It’s the least I can do. A-and it’s not a bother at all; I won’t be doing anything on break e-except working a little bit and helping Mom around the house. It would be a welcome distraction if anything. Plus I have messaging on my phone, s-so it’s not like I have to run to the computer if you have something to tell me.
