Diary

Dear Diary,

        I can't believe this is happening. All the adults are gone...what are we going to do?! What's going to happen to all of the young children? I must help them; they need me.

                                                Sincerely,
                                                       Jill

 

Dear Diary,

        I began an orphanage. Many kids have been coming to me. I'm glad. They need me to watch over them, and I'll protect them. Lisa began a militia. Truthfully, I'm relieved that she started it. Now, there's a whole group of people that are going to protect each other. We've all pitched in to help. Tom Logan came a few days ago. He offered us a deal; he said he'd protect Grand Avenue if we provided him with food for his gang. Lisa declined the deal; in addition, I don't want anything to do with that boy. He and his gang had robbed Todd once. Those evil people; they better stay away from us.

                                               Yours truely,
                                                           Jill

 

Dear Diary,

         Oh my goodness. Tom Logan set Lisa and Todd's home on fire while we were at Lake Ellyn. You should've seen Lisa's face. She was so shocked; I feel her pain. All of her memories of her family are gone. I don't know what I would do if that happened to me.  Lisa and Todd were forced to stay at my house. Lisa's been looking pretty preoccupied. I can see a new idea coming

                                                         Love,
                                                                    Jill

 

Dear Diary,

         I was right. Lisa was thinking up a good idea; in fact, it's a wonderful idea! She suggested that everyone on Grand Avenue move to Glenbard. Oh! It's huge! Everyone will be able to fit and the river's right by it. I can't wait until we move there; moreover, there will finally be enough room for all the kids in my orphanage.

Dear Diary,

        Oh boy. Some bad things have been happening but it's gotten better. Let me start from the beginning. After we had moved into Glenbard, the kids worked to improve the school, yet Glenbard had to look deserted. Some children families began coming, asking if they could join us. After a series of questions, they were accepted. Tom Logan found out and invaded Glenbard. Some gang member shot Lisa and they thought she was dead. Todd, Craig, Erika, Lisa, and I crept out and went to the farms. There, I performed surgery to take out the bullet from Lisa's arm. It was the most nervewrecking thing I ever did. How is a young girl hardly even in her teens supposed to perform surgery?! Nonetheless, I succeeded. When Lisa awoke, I told her to have some whiskey because it would help reduce the pain since we had no aspirin. It was hilarious when Lisa was drunk. Eventually, she fell asleep. When she woke up, she had a flow of new ideas. She told us that someone needed to go back to Glenbard as a spy. Todd went as the fifth Johansen sister. Oh, he looked so much like a girl that even Lisa couldn't tell it was her brother. After a few days, I went back to Glenbard. I was glad to be with my family again. However, word leaked out that Lisa was still alive, so when they came back to get Glenbard back. Tom already knew. The strange thing is that he gave up Glenbard without a fight. I think he couldn't take the responsibilty and pressure. I'm glad it's all over.

                                                    Love always,
                                                              Jill

        Jill was an important character in this story for many reasons. For example, she had taken care of the kids and had watch over Lisa when Lisa's house was burned down. She also performed surgery on Lisa when Lisa was shot in the arm. Without her kindness and patientness, the children would not have learned the many virtues of life.
