Thurs., June 5—
Today was an unusual day. I began the day feeling sad. Sad that my brother is missing, and sad that I’m losing my house. Sure, I can live with Tabitha, but I don’t really want to live with my daughter and her family; I’d feel like I’m intruding and she has enough to worry about. So true to my nature—hahaha—I’ll be living with strangers doing a job I hate. But hopefully, I’ll be able to find Alan by doing so.
I am feeling a little better, kind of, now that I’m home. But it’s so sad to look around and know I’ll be moving out soon. I love my house.
I did go to Inky Fest earlier today, and it was packed. After some jerk had knocked the tea from my hand, I went down to the beach and found a quiet place to set. That’s when I got a phone call from the agency asking me if I wanted a job as a private duty nurse on the island. I said yes. I guess the mansion where I’ll be caring for the old man is inside the outer fence—so close to Castle Moldovan. It is part of the castle area, but I bet I’m not allowed to get any closer to that creepy looking monastery. Not that I really want to, but I can’t help but wonder if Alan could be inside. But that’s ridiculous unless he was going vampire hunting. He got that idea in his head because of the document he found in the library.
Anyway, tomorrow I will talk with someone from the mansion, I think her name was Lady Beth—people still speak like that? — So I suppose I’ll find out for sure if I actually want the job.
