Drama

Dear Diary,

Today was finally the day I got to go to Palistonaville. I was so excited. Palistonaville (or Palis for short) was an undiscovered part of the world. Me and my team were going there to get a few good shots of the place, write a juicy article about it, and maybe interview one of the members of the mysterious Palistonian tribes. Lindsay is the photographer, Marquel is the editor, and I am the writer. Yes I can finally say I am Isabella Maria García the famous writer for the New York Times. I am so excited!!! Got to go start packing, Lindsay is nagging me to get ready or else we will be late. She is such a mom!


Love,

Isa

Dear Diary,


OMG I am on the plane! Our team couldn’t sit together. I am beside this really nice girl named, Kai! But she was not going to Palis with us… See we had to get two flights, because Palis is really far. So we are stopping in Thailand for 2 hours then going on our next flight. Kai is going to meet her sister Somchai, so we won’t be able to see each other on my next flight 🥺🥺🥺.


The flight attendants are super nice and come so fast. Omg their food is so good!!!! I just got this brownie, and it seriously tasted so good! I took 7 more!!!!! Before you say anything about it, I am keeping some for the go.


I am just wondering, what will Palis be like? Will it have forests and ponds? Trees that seem endless and the best fruits. Will there be juiciest fruits would bounce on my head along with light drips of water. 


Sincerely,

Your Excited Owner, 

ISA!!!!

Dear Diary, I have so much to tell you!!! We landed in Thailand about 15 minutes ago. I am waiting on my table with my team for our Tim Hortons order (2 medium black coffee and 3 icecaps. 2 boxes of timbits and a pack of donuts. And 3 mini salads.). I was super HUNGRY. Going to eat, then go for our next flight. 


Sincerely, 

Isabella

Dear Diary, 


OMG, we are on the plane, but I don’t feel safe. There is only my team on the plane, no other passengers. The flight attendants seem to always be talking to their family through their phones. I felt bad eavesdropping so I stopped listening to them. All I heard was “Yeah I am OK, don’t worry.”.


I got a chilly feeling down my back when I saw somebody else on the plane. A scurvy old man stood at the rear end of the plane. He had a weird jittery way of moving. He had a glass eye and was SKINNY as HELL!


Your Terrified Owner,

Isabella

Dear Diary,


We just landed and the plane dropped us off and flew away. We saw nothing modern (airports, buildings, houses.). Nothing cool, just a creepy as hell of a place with run down buildings. Blood everywhere. Arrows and gunpowder fill the area with a dirty smell. It felt so bad. 


I am now terrified to death because we just encountered the tribes that live here. The guards spooke in an unknown language. We tried our best to communicate but it was negative. He kept saying “INTRUDERS, INTRUDERS”. We tried to say no, but he called his friends, now we are freaking being taken to their leader, and they seriously put us in these potato sacks and I have no light to see, but seriously PLEASE FREAKING HELP. I am crying and I hear Lindsay crying for her mom, and they beat up Marquel so much that he is unconscious. He had the bravery to slap the guard and yeah. HELP PPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I have no idea what to do, if I die, I wanna tell you mommy be ready, I am coming to join you up there. Daddy please take good care of my 3 sisters, Senotai, Haramika, and Giravia. Please let my beautiful daughter, Kalani have an amazing life with my husband Felix. And tell my big boy Harold to do great things after you graduate from university. I already miss you Gianna, Melony, Hanna, Fiera and Lucy. I am so terribly sad and scared. But I had a good life. 


I can't believe this is the moment. I am in a situation where I know, I am going to die. I miss you already, Dom, Andrew, Mason, Jeremy and Ben. 


Love,

Isa

Dear Diary,


Okay so I didn’t die, YET. They put us in a cellar after the tribe leader found out about us. We are with a few people. So there's this girl named Maddie who had been here for 32 years, she came when she was a teenager and is now a middle aged person. And obviously I am shook. They give you 3 meals a day. Meals as in raw meat. Unripe berries and wild mushrooms. I don't know why I think I will enjoy that. Also this creepy girl named Fiona who won’t say anything.


I hope I can survive. Marquel is in a coma, and Lindsay is saying her goodbyes. Maddie is asleep. Fiona is counting her toenail jar. See, she is weird as hell. 


FROM YOUR PARTIALLY DEAD OWNER,

ISABELLA

Dear Diary, 


I am positive there is going to be a death. The leader said that one of us will need to sacrifice our life for the rest to be sent free. I just don’t want it to be any of us, let Fiona die. She is a depressed creep, and she is weird. Like this morning she was ripping out big chunks of her hair, LIKE BIG GIANT CHUNKS. It was terrible.


Update- FIONA IS DEAD, AND WE NEED TO RUN. I WOULD WRITE MORE BUT I AM ON A BOAT RUNNING FOR MY LIFE.

Dear Diary, 


We have been on the sea for 4 weeks now, and no sign of land. Marquel has just woken up from his coma. I am very happy but terribly sad to have witnessed Fiona poison herself. I am deeply saddened. 


Anyways, we have plenty of food and water, so I hope we will survive. 


CRAZY UPDATE, WE HIT A ROCK, NOW I AM POSITIVE WE WILL DIE. I MISS YOU ALREADY. 


IF YOU DON’T LOVE ME, I LOVE YOU. SO KNOW IF YOU FEEL NOBODY LOVES YOU ALWAYS REMEMBER, I AM THAT PERSON THAT YOU KNOW LOVES YOU.

Isabella has been remembered. She crashed into a giant block of ice, maybe a coincidence that their boat was called the Mini Titanic

Hi Nimrit. Sorry for being late. I was busy lately. I write this comment because you know, better late than never. So... This is how I think about your story, in three words: Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow, Nimrit. Very voicy, and it really sounds like it's ripped out from someone's diary. Interesting details, neither too much or too few. The story itself is sad, but you told it in brighter, funnier way so I occasionally chuckled while reading. 😁 One thing : I can't decide the age of the pro...

WOAHHH THANKS!!!!! I just realised that I haven't even decided an age for the character :l Well I'd just say you could think of it as either a teen mom, or an adult with a teenager-ish personality...

I just loved this!!! It was really face paced and stuff but I enjoyed it overall. I love how you made her brain into a diary entry is that was? Cause thats how my brain imagined it cause how would she write during those times.. Well whatever the diary entries were great and you could actually feel the fear and everything she was feeling. It was really enjoyable and it left me wanting to know more of what happens next! I'll be awaiting part 2! but great job!! AND OUUU you were born in LONDON?? THATS AMAZING how is it there??

Part 2 is already out!!!! https://blog.reedsy.com/creative-writing-prompts/contests/60/submissions/36073/ You can check it out!!!! Yeah I was born in London, but it has been a few years since I have been there. It is not as pleasant as you think it is. I mean yeah, it is pretty famous but it doesn't really welcome foreigners, but it is a great place for tourists!!!!! I currently live in Canada with my parents and little brother. And btw, we don't live in igloos, there are people that do, but most people don't. IT'S NOT AS COLD AS PEOPLE...

Nimrit, First I'd like to say how cool I think it is that you write like entries from a diary. Also, I saw in your bio that you were born in London, England, I think that's so cool. I also find it cool that you're Canadian. How is it there? "I have no idea what to do, if I die, I wanna tell you mommy be ready, I am coming to join you up there." What a sweet line. Thanks for using my name! I feel famous. Awesome story Nimrit, keep it up!
