I went to the market plaza in search of new shoes today. The pair I own are falling apart at the seams. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a pair comfortable shoes in better condition than the ones I am wearing. There is a bigger market a day away but I don’t want to travel the distance for shoes. While shopping, I overheard people discussing Central and their wicked ways. The goons of Central are causing trouble all over town. No one is happy. Many feels helpless and deeply worried. I feel their pain. Central stole our fuel and there wasn’t a dang thing we could do about it.
I have decided to send some of my people to Wolf Valley to barter for fuel. Matt and Jonas suggested we storm Central and take back the fuel that was stolen. This wasn’t an option because one or more of us would have died in the attempt. Matt wasn’t happy I disagreed with his suggestion. He stormed out of the meeting. I truly understand his frustration. The trip to Wolf Valley is not without hazards but it is the safer of the two option.
Pete is going to increase the number of people on security patrols during the night hours. Hopefully, Central with not cause anymore trouble.
After a month long search, I finally found a new journal to write in. I found it at the plaza. I paid a hefty price but I desperately needed something to write my thoughts in.
Not a lot to tell, except that things have been quiet for weeks. I am a little bored. Everyone is off doing their own thing. I was hoping maybe I could get someone to play a game of cards, spades perhaps. Its a fun game but no one was interested in playing. I even asked the library trio, Mary, Gretchen and Cecilia. all they do is sit in the media center and read books. I was hoping they could use a diversion from all the books they read. They weren’t interested in playing cards. Marty said they were doing research on an unnamed subject. Apparently, the subject wouldn’t interest me, so they decided I didn’t need to know the details. They quickly, escorted me from the media center and then locked the door.
